Strolling along the water to see architecturally pleasing buildings, and to watch the seaplanes take off and land, is a must-do. It looks just as good during the day as it does at night. Festivals and performances take place regularly in the Inner Harbour during the warmer months.
Hatley Castle was built in the Scottish-Baronial style. It has beautifully manicured gardens surrounding it. Today, it is also featured in many TV shows and films.
Beacon Hill Park lies within a walking distance of downtown Victoria. Beacon Hill Park has impressive views of Juan de Fuca Strait and Washington State’s Olympic Mountains too. Within the park, check out the world’s fourth-tallest totem pole and the bridge between Goodacre and Fountain Lakes, which is dedicated to the famous BC artist, Emily Carr.
Here, the beautiful, long sandy beaches are popular with surfers, beachcombers, and anyone who wants to get out and walk along the shore. Surfers can be seen here throughout the year, and whales can often be spotted offshore, especially in spring and autumn. Massive piles of driftwood testify to the violence of the ocean waves. Storm watching has become a popular activity in fall and winter when photographers and visitors come to Pacific Rim National Park to watch the huge waves crash against the shore.
In the park, you can see an old Western red cedar. The park has been undergoing restoration since a major wind storm in 1997, which took down many old trees. Visitors will see some of these huge trunks lying on the ground, which is also an impressive sight. Beyond the park, the road continues westwards across the Beaufort Range to Mount Arrowsmith (1,806 meters).
Canada is also home to a selection of aboriginal languages, which are spoken
by the relatively small populations of indigenous peoples who reside there.
Due to the very low numbers of native speakers, the majority of these languages
are not expected to be able to survive for more than a few generations.
Popular foods in Canada include "poutine" which originates from Quebec and consists of
French fries and cheese, topped with brown gravy; Canadian "peameal" bacon and maple syrup.
The later is often consumed with doughnuts, butter tarts and pancakes.
There is no given standard for literary tradition in Canada as its British roots lean
towards English literature. There are, however, many internationally known
writers in Canada, such as L.M. Mongomery (Anne of Green Gables).
