Be a Tourist Victoria!

February 18, 2017

I Love being a Tourist!  Don’t miss your opportunity from February 23 through to February 26. This event is presented by Attractions Victoria and allows locals and visitors to experience the awesome attractions, tours and businesses at special prices and sometimes free! To purchase your VIP Ticket for only $15 go to “Be a Tourist in Your Own Town“.

Here’s some places I will be visiting over the weekend.

Butchart Gardens and thanks to “CVS Double Decker Bus Tours” you can ride for free from Downtown, Legislative Assembly of BC for a free guided tour, Sea Cider for three free samples, Enjoying the Beautiful waterview and tasting some awesome Gin at Victoria Distiller’s New Sidney facility,  and maybe I’ll fit in a Victoria Caledonia Brewery Tour too!

Hmm Seems like a pattern here?! Cider, Gin and Beer! Oh well, why not.

Then we need to top it off with some delectable treats for the tummy.

Maybe a Tour from Off the Eaten Track and of course some sweets from around the World at Sweet Delights in Oak Bay.


For full details of the awesome event go to Attractions Victoria Website

Have Fun!
