World Curling Championship coming to Victoria

Victoria has always been a hot spot for travellers who like to stay active, and this spring some world-class competitors are making their way to the city to put their talents on display. From March 30 to April 7, Victoria will be hosting the 2013 Ford World Men’s Curling Championships, where the top curlers from across the globe will compete for the title of world’s best. The action is set to take place at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre, where fans will pack the stands to watch the competition and other fantastic performances during the event. 

The City of Gardens previously hosted the tournament in 2005, and that was the year Team Canada won the title in a dramatic fashion. If the trend holds, fans who attend the 2013 event are in for a treat. 

Whether you are a world-class athlete or simply planning a trip to the bustling Victoria inner harbour area, the city is sure to have plenty of activities and attractions that will keep you busy during your stay. Between the sights around town and the amenities that fill popular accommodations like the Magnolia Hotel & Spa, visitors may find it difficult to fit everything into their one exciting getaway.
