One of the most beautiful and popular places to call home along the Pacific Coast is Victoria. This community of about 80,000 people is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island and it offers some of the best amenities. It is also home to a growing economy, a strong tourism industry, a stable natural environment, and plenty of things to do and see. If you are planning to relocate here, take a closer look at a few of the best neighbourhoods to consider.

Empress Hotel - Victoria, British Columbia

Downtown Victoria

A primary option for those looking for a stellar place to call home in a trendy, diverse community is the Downtown area. This is where everything is including BC Museum, designer boutiques, coffee shops, and all of the Parliament buildings. It is also home to an urban vibe, giving you a trendy, upscale place to call home. You will find some beautiful buildings to buy as well as older homes and apartments.

West Shore

The West Shore area of Victoria is home to several neighbourhoods. This includes View Royal and Langford, both more affluent areas of the city. You can easily have a home that's minutes from the waterfront in these communities. You will also be near parkland, good transportation options, and plenty of single family homes. The area isn't overpriced either but provides a wide range of amenities ideal for younger families.


Another treasure in Victoria is the region of Metchosin. It is a natural setting with mostly single-family, smaller homes. For those who want to be in a more natural setting, this is a good option. It is a bit more pricey than other areas, but you are significantly further away from the busy downtown area.

Any of these destinations could be your ideal place to call home in Victoria. Take a few minutes to consider the features important to you and then work with an area real estate agent to find your home.
