WHY URBACITY CHALLENGE SHOULD BE YOUR DESTINATION EVENT!
Victoria is a unique blend of old world charm and new world experiences. As an island destination, Victoria offers visitors an escape from the hurried world and beams with ambience. Boasting the mildest climate in Canada we are green and beautiful year-round. In fact, Vancouver Island, where Victoria is located, is rated the TOP ISLAND in the Continental US and Canada and one of the TOP TEN ISLANDS IN THE WORLD by the 2012 Travel+Leisure World's Best Awards.
In Victoria, heritage architecture, colourful gardens and traditions like afternoon tea mix with a plethora of outdoor adventure, world-class culinary experiences and a vibrant arts and cultural scene. This combined with the wild beauty of the Pacific Ocean and old-growth rainforests set against a backdrop of the Olympic Mountains makes Victoria the perfect getaway. We were even rated as the #1 DESTINATION TO VISIT IN CANADA by the 2010 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Awards. You should really come here.
