Many people visit Vancouver Island each year for its beautiful scenery, friendly people and laid back west coast attitude but not everyone has the time to see the whole island. Those visiting Vancouver and making a ferry trip across for a short stay in Victoria can still have fun, even on a tight time frame. This guide offers you a sample of some great things to see and do if you only have 48 hours and want to stick to downtown Victoria. The city is full of great places to eat, beautiful parks and lots of history so get ready for an action packed 48 hours!
1. Jam Cafe
Start your day on this beautiful island off right with a delicious and hearty breakfast at Jam Café. Near the intersection of Harold and Government Streets in Old Town is where you’ll find this charming local favorite. Jam Café serves up breakfast and lunch daily and the menu includes many unique items like fried chicken benedict and ‘The Three Little Pigs’ which are maple sausages dipped in pancake batter and fried till golden brown. This spot is definitely a favorite among locals so be prepared to wait for a table unless you show up right when they open at 8am.
