Top Five Family Activities

Travel Media Story Ideas - FamilyFor the visitor who is young, or young at heart, Victoria and Vancouver Island have plenty of fun things to see and do. From parks and museums to zoos and outdoor recreation, there is something for kids of all ages. Ocean waters, long sandy beaches, rainforests and wide open spaces await exploration. Children are encouraged to get up close and personal with local marine life, bugs, butterflies and farm animals at Victoria's unique gardens and zoos. Museums abound on the island and have hands-on displays and activities for their favourite little customers. Recreation centres, swimming pools, waterslides and mini-golf are always popular with the whole family and many of Victoria and Vancouver Island's festivals cater to children.
