Victoria is full of green space and things to do. Plan a trip to Victoria and just minutes from your hotel you can experience all the lush greenery of Vancouver Island in the fresh air.
 
FIELDTRIPPERS: LIVING FOSSILS
Victoria is abundant in plant life, and some of those plants are a window into what life was like years ago! On April 4, join Dr. Ken Marr at the Royal BC Museum as he leads you on an outdoor tour of some of the plants that have inhabited Vancouver Island for millions of years! Dawn redwoods, sequoias, gingkos and magnolias once sprawled across the land, but are relatively rare these days – let this expert show you how to find them in the wild and tell you the story behind them! It’s a great way to get out in the sun and learn something.
 
CORB LUND
Corb Lund is one of Canada’s favourite performers. This country songsmith combines great songwriting with an easy-going stage presence and great wit, writing songs that are as fun as they are moving. A multiple Juno award winner, Lund’s talents put him in line with titans of country like Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and even Johnny Cash – he’s as adept at writing a rollicking drinking song as he is a heartfelt ballad. He’s a Canadian treasure and he’s coming to Victoria this April 27! Come to the Alix Goolden Hall to see him sing modern classics like “Time to Switch to Whiskey,” “Horse Soldier! Horse Soldier!” and “The Truck Got Stuck.”

Victoria has the best of the city and of natural beauty. If you need to get away from it all, come to Victoria and enjoy Vancouver Island! And while you’re here, stay at the Best Western Plus Carlton Plaza Hotel in Victoria’s scenic downtown harbour.
