The Butchart Gardens – Victoria, BC {Babymoon 2.0}

Planning a trip to Victoria, BC?  The Butchart Gardens NEED to be on your must visit list!

You know when you don’t over plan and are willing to go on a whim with your traveling and amazing things happen?  Well, it seems like things like that happen whenever Nate and I travel!  I used to be such a planner but Nate has taught me to be more go with the flow and wait until we get somewhere to completely decide what we’re going to do.  It is still a little stressful for me to do this but every time I do it’s been worth it!

This time around we got to Victoria for our babymoon with only a few things on our agenda.  One of our first stops was at the visitor’s center to find out if there was anything we hadn’t thought to do or anything going on that weekend.  Crazily enough, the very weekend we were there was the “Be a Tourist in Your Own Hometown” event that was $15 for a pass that covered tons of different tourist attractions.  Sure, it wasn’t OUR hometown that the event was taking place but we definitely jumped on those passes!

One of the reasons we knew the passes would be a good idea was that the Butchart Gardens were a part of the pass…  The Butchart Gardens that normally cost $24.20 to get into were a part of the $15 pass.  Yeah, that’s a no brainer!

So, one of the days we bundled up, jumped in the car, and drove to the Butchart Gardens.  We didn’t know what to expect since it’s still pretty much winter.  Let me tell you, though, even in the winter the gardens are gorgeous!  Sure, there weren’t very many flowers, but the landscaping the did have was beautiful and it gave us a good idea of how even more beautiful the gardens are in the summer time!

It was fantastic to walk hand in hand with my love – chatting and connecting – while enjoying God’s beautiful creation!  Definitely a wonderful portion of our babymoon.
