There's no harm in indulging your sweet tooth every now and then. For travellers on Vancouver Island, there are plenty of opportunities to do just that, from snacking during an elegant tea time at a Victoria boutique hotel to stopping at local shops during a stroll around the inner harbour area. The Royal B.C. Museum is upping the ante, however, as one of its upcoming events is set to focus on the sweeter side of life.
"B.C. Bites & Beverages: Victoria's Sweet Secret – 100 Years of Confectionery History" will celebrate the city's delicious relationship with candy and chocolate at 7 p.m. March 21. Historian Sherri Robinson will provide information about the old methods of production and creation, which attendees can listen to as they munch on samples of some modern-day offerings from local vendors.
Tickets must be purchased ahead of time, so guests who will be in the area should make room in their schedules now.
If you're planning on visiting Victoria for this sweet event or others, be sure to book a room at the Magnolia Hotel & Spa. Ideally located in the city centre, guests can walk to several nearby sweet shops or make their way to the Royal B.C. Museum for the special celebration.
