The only good thing about summer starting to wrap up are the Sunflowers — close to Victoria, there's a golden patch you have to see ASAP.
The Saanichton Corn Maze & Sunflower Walk is less than 30 minutes from Victoria between the city and Swartz Bay — it makes a great addition to any Island road trip since it's so close to the ferries.
Acres of sunflowers
There are plenty of sunflower festivals and mazes on the mainland, but this one is perfect since it's so close to B.C.'s capital.
You have to get a timed ticket to join in the fun and they're $15 per person.
Plus, they even have a corn maze you can try and it creates a beautiful leafy green backdrop for any photos you're planning to take.
