This scenic patch of waterfront is the location of Victoria's many tourist attractions, recreational activities, restaurants and shopping. For a special treat, have afternoon tea at the grand Empress Hotel or board a ferry for a harbor tour.

Inner Habour is a Must-Visit place when you are in Victoria. Beautiful boats, live music, nice market and great vibe. There is no reason not to come here.

By day lots of street performers and artists along the Inner Harbor lined with beautiful hanging flower baskets. Great for people watching, eating, etc. By night, the views of the Empress, Parliament Buildings, etc. are BEAUTIFUL and all lit up. Romantic setting.

Inner harbour is a no brainer. I would recommend you spend the first day just getting a feel for what is here. Check out the inner harbour taxi among other things.

The harbour is a great site after dark, take a walk down after sunset and enjoy the lights especially on the Parliament House. It makes the Australian Parliament look plain!!!!

So many people enjoying the delicious warm day. Must try the food trucks if you want good food. They are all around and you will eat better and quite less expensive.

It was a beautiful day so the tourists were out in force. But I still had a good time wandering around, looking at the buildings and the art. And there was a buskers' festival that was free! That was the best part, as the two...More
