5. Relax With A Couple’s Spa Day

Victoria is filled with world class full service spas throughout the city. There is nothing quite like relaxing the day away with a special someone than an afternoon at the spa. Oak Bay Hotel & Spa in Victoria has quite the view! How about a mountain top spa?  If you have a vehicle we highly recommend the couples package at Santé Spa on Bear Mountain just 20 minutes from downtown.

#8 Canada’s Largest Outdoor Flower Garden

This flower garden is so big on our last romantic date to Butchart Gardens we honestly spent 7 hours linked arm in arm immersed in this jaw dropping beauty. We did have to stop for lunch in the “dining room” which made the day that much more memorable.
