What do you like about Victoria?
The "small but big" feel. Victoria is large enough for a variety of places to shop, dine, and visit, however it is also small enough to keep density of buildings low, which brings many tree filled quiet neighborhoods. The scenery of Victoria is some of the best in Canada, being near the Olympic mountains of Washington as well as the Gulf Islands. There are also many parks to visit including the well known Mount Douglas park.
What do you dislike about Victoria?
Having to take the ferry to Vancouver when traveling off the island. The ferry is time consuming and costly, especially when taking vehicles or trailers.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in?
Saanich (the neighbourhoods I live in). Saanich is technically seperate municipality from Victoria, however they are essentially one large city. It has many parks and trees, as well as quite neighbourhoods.
How expensive is it?
Quite. Victoria's house prices are very expensive (and rising). At least 500k plus for an average house.
Is it safe?
For the most part Victoria is very safe. As most cities it is not a good idea to wander downtown late a night, but in general you should not be bothered.
How is the weather?
The weather of Victoria is also not the best. It is basically split into two seasons. 60% Winter, which consists of heavy rains and 30% summer, which is has high temperatures and little rain for about 3 months.
Victoria is a great city to live in. It has many attractions, parks, and places to shop. The cost of living is high though, so for a beginning couple or student it may not be a good first choice, though in the future prices may drop.
