Indoor Victoria Attractions for Rainy Days Tag: saanich

Mother smiling at her young daughter peering over a wooden fence, both wearing rain jackets.

Late autumn in Victoria can look dreary and boring when you first glance out your window, even when it's not raining. Our mild climate means above-freezing temperatures and next to no snow, but that isn't always comforting when a day at the park is ruined by cold, grey drizzle.

Being a dad myself, I know what it's like to have antsy, grumpy kids cooped up inside with too much energy and nowhere to put it. Thankfully, Victoria has its own cure for rainy-day blues: As a city based on tourism, there are always plenty of activities available year round that can keep a family occupied no matter what the weather.

These are just some of our favourite rainy day activities in Victoria. Let us know what yours are down in the comments!
