Hello! My name is Della Credicott, your inside source here in Victoria. 

In 1994 I visited Vancouver Island for the first time and in 1997 I moved here. I was lucky to have my sister already living here and enjoying a West Coast lifestyle. To help me settle in and discover some of Victoria’s hidden gems, she hosted a “my favourite things” party. She invited her entire circle of friends with one request - tell Della about your favourite things to see and do in Victoria. And they did not disappoint!

I fell in love with the city, the scenery, the weather and the seemingly endless variety of things to do. Since then, I’ve discovered all the nooks and crannies of the region and I’d like to share them with you. If you’re looking for:

  • Restaurants even the locals line up for
  • The ideal accommodations to rest after an exhilarating day on the water
  • The best ways to keep the kids entertained 
  • Festivals and events worth booking your travel around
  • The best beaches and parks for family fun

I’ve got you covered. 

I’m here to share this amazing place with you and help make your vacation better than you imagined with something to see, do or experience every single day. My website is "my favourites things" party just for you. 

Are you ready?
