Butchart Gardens

Brentwood Bay, Canada

A popular day trip from nearby Victoria, Vancouver Island’s most famous gardens are much more than flora and fauna -- just ask any child who’s the Garden’s Rose Carousel, featuring a menagerie of 30 hand-carved animals. The Gardens, open year-round except for Christmas Day, attract more than 1 million visitors each year, and it’s easy to see why. The “5 seasons” of the Gardens include something for all ages, from summer fireworks to the Twelve Days of Christmas holiday fest.
