With one of the most mild climates in Canada, even Victoria's "chilly" winter months have plenty of outdoor and indoor activities for all ages to take part in. Here we've collected a list of some of the most popular places and events in the city for you to explore during the winter — let us know which ones are your favourites!
Autumn has just started to set in, but it's already time for rig owners to start thinking about Christmas in Victoria BC. The city's mild weather, lack of snow and ice, and festive celebrations makes it a popular destination for the holiday season, and RV parks sell out fast — we're already starting to see December bookings.
If you're considering a Christmas RV booking of your own, we've collected some of the upcoming Victoria holiday events you can look forward to, including parades, markets, concerts, movies and tours. When November rolls around, don't forget to pop into local coffee shops and restaurants as well and ask about their Christmas specials.
Voted second best small city in the world by the magazine Conde Nast in 2017, Victoria is a world-class destination for travellers. Splendorous raw beauty abounds in the sparkling oceans, blissful beaches, lush meadows, tall trees, and magnificent parks. Our city boasts renowned museums, galleries, and architecture. Just imagine being in the epicentre of all this magic while you enjoy a stay in our new state-of-the-art RV park. The rapturous experience of all things Victoria would not be complete without the ultimate adventure: salmon fishing.
Situated on Esquimalt's sun-drenched waterfront, we are the perfect location to offer you easy and convenient access to salmon fishing. We want you to experience the joys of Island living, including our love affair with salmon and other seafood.
Here at Salish Seaside RV Haven we are very excited at how quickly the final touches on the site are drawing together in the wake of our upcoming Grand Opening! The event will be limited to guests of the RV park, and we expect plenty of great food and dancing. (We do have a few unbooked sites left, so if you aren't currently a guest at Salish Seaside RV Haven and you would like to attend the ceremony, get your booking in before April 21st!)
The fun doesn't stop there! Once the Grand Opening Ceremony is over, we'd like to invite you to take the chance to formally explore some of the best Esquimalt BC has to offer. Take a look at some of the most fascinating spots for you to explore:
Well, it looks like we're finally on the home stretch! The siding is almost finished and what a difference, it looks great (thanks to Sawyer Custom Carpentry)! Next for the exterior is to finish various small details, downspouts, etc. The upstairs is coming along slowly but surely. The patio slabs have been laid for both balconies, and the glass contractors should be installing the glass railings in the next week or two. I can’t wait to sit out there with a cold beer watching the world go by — after work, obviously. We also had our fabulous landscape designer in this week figuring out what beautiful (deer-proof) indigenous plants and flowers to place around the base of the welcoming poles.
All in all, we're well on our way to being in fantastic shape for the upcoming peak season. In fact, we're already taking pad bookings for the spring and summer, so if you were eyeing a lot now is the time to grab it! To offer some extra incentive, we've collected a peek of what you can expect to find during the refreshing days of May in Victoria:

The old Westbay has been completely razed and the two First Nations are starting from scratch to rebuild it. We are reducing the number of pads to 36, they are now truly big rig friendly, building a brand new amenity building with upstairs meeting room with decks and fireplace, supplying 50 amp service, and best of all the wifi is going to work...
