Located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island off Canada's Pacific coast, the city has conserved a large number of its historic buildings along with its two famous landmarks, the Empress hotel and Legislative buildings also known as home of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia.

Situated about 100 kilometers by airplane or ferry from Seattle, and 40 kilometers from Port Angeles, Washington, by ferry Coho, Victoria is a famous tourism destination that has become the largest revenue-generating private industry. 

Victoria is very popular for its beautiful and rugged shorelines and beaches and also popular with retirees, who come to enjoy the temperate and usually snow-free climate of the area as well as the normal relaxed pace of the city.
