Sidney and North Saanich
Sidney and North Saanich are located at the tip of the Saanich Peninsula, five minutes from the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal and Victoria International Airport and 25 minutes north of downtown. Sidney is a pretty little town known for its museums, marinas, oceanside walkways and unique shops, including several bookstores. The outlying area contains country roads that crisscross rolling farmland, parks, forests and the tiny communities of the Saanich Peninsula. Roads in these communities lead to a number of delightful attractions such as; the world-famous Butchart Gardens, Butterfly Gardens, the BC Aviation Museum, Saanich Historical Artifacts Society, Island View Beach, Sidney Spit Marine Park and the village of Brentwood Bay.
