A BC city has been named one of the best in all of Canada by Travel+Leisure.

Super, Natural British Columbia is a prime destination for people from all over the world because of all the natural beauty that’s present.

Victoria, BC, in particular, caught the attention of Travel+Leisure, which named the popular Vancouver Island spot the third best city in all of Canada among five other destinations. Victoria also happens to be the largest urban area on Vancouver Island.

The findings are from Travel+Leisure reader insights, which said that Victoria felt similar to the United Kingdom in certain regards.
