Victoria has been called one of the seven most underrated cities in the country by Conde Nast Traveler.
The magazine says the city has small-town energy but the proximity to Vancouver also allows for a metropolitan influence softened slightly by the natural landscape of Vancouver Island.
“Victoria is only about a half hour from Vancouver by seaplane, but the charming capital of British Columbia marches to a totally different beat than its big city neighbour,” the magazine said.
The other cities on the list are Halifax, Nova Scotia, Quebec City, Banff, Ottawa and Winnipeg.
