Victoria - forest/scenic drive advice?

Jump to last reply

Honeymoon trip from Dallas. 6 nights/7 days in early October. We'll be staying in seattle for 3 days, and in the city of victoria for 3. Fly in saturday night, fly out early friday.

In victoria, we're staying at one of the hotels in the northern part of the harbor. All I know so far is we're taking a whale tour one of those days...so we get a lot of water/ocean scenery on our trip.

But fiancee is also wanting to see/photograph some of the beautiful trees kinda scenery too.

If we take the amtrak train from Seattle-Vancouver and then ferry over to Victoria we get some good woodsy scenery I've heard.

But we were thinking, if we don't ride the train and just take the ferry from Seattle to victoria---that's more water/ocean photos...how can we experience the beauty of the forests and trees while in victoria?

Would it be worth renting a car for a day and driving around to see the mountains/trees? Or is there a good state park/scenic area within an hour or so drive of Victoria? Any routes you would recommend? Or could one just take one of the major roads out of Victoria and get a nice relaxing drive?

Sorry for so many questions.

Thanks!!!
