Victoria British Columbia:
Your West Coast Adventure Awaits

Imagine your perfect West Coast vacation starting in Victoria British Columbia. Now imagine seeing all the fabulous tourist attractions, the bustling harbour and the beautiful, vibrant downtown. But what if you could see and do more? What if you had inside knowledge to the hidden gems – the very best places to go with family and friends, the best places to eat and the things you simply must do to discover the real Victoria and experience a vacation you will never forget.

Imagine no more – I’m here to help.

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

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 was introduced to some of the region’s best hiking and cycling trails, a bakery that is still one of my favourites (Bond Bonds), China Town, Mount Doug and much, much more. 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 that you won’t find in any tourism books.  

I don’t think there is ever a bad time to be in Victoria British Columbia and regardless of which season you do visit, I’m here to share this amazing place with you and help you find something to see, do or experience every single day. My website is "my favourites things" party just for you. 

Enough about me, this is about your vacation and making it better than you imagined.

Discover Victoria

Greater Victoria is a vast region from Sidney to Sooke, with a population of approximately 380,000 people who call this area home. With 13 different municipalities all hosting their own events and activities, there is a seemingly endless list of festivals, markets, community parks, sporting activities and entertainment options to explore. 

I am passionate about exploring this remarkable place I get to call home and share my discoveries with you. I hope to meet you in my travels. If you know of something that should be included here, or a topic you'd like me to write about, let me know. I'm always happy to hear your suggestions on how to improve The Insider's Guide to Victoria British Columbia. 


Have a great day!
