Vacay.ca Recommends Victoria for a Fitness Vacation
Victoria is known for its plethora of outdoors activities and Vacay.ca contributor Kathleen Kenna recently discovered why.
Kenna writes: “Victoria is rated ‘fittest city in Canada/ because Statistics Canada shows more people walk, bike and work out than in any other city — 36 per cent of adults are active, double the national average. It’s not just the mild weather year-round that’s the reason for this distinction. It’s the attitude.” Read the rest of “Why Victoria is Canada’s Fittest City” here.
