Victoria Tourism Bulletins

It would appear that it wasn’t only the residents of Greater Victoria who were affected by our cold, wet March. As we can see from the decline in occupancy rates from 2016, the weather deterred travelers from visiting, even in a month that provides families with the opportunity to get away for Spring Break. On the bright side, year to date numbers are still up over last year, and anecdotal information tells us that the rest of spring and summer bookings are strong.
