My husband and I have limited vacation time and are wondering what is the best way to get from Southern California (where we live) to Victoria, BC in a way that lets us have a car when we're in Victoria. I have been trying to figure out the best combinations of flying (to Seattle?), ferries (with or without car? or with renting a car in Victoria?) etc. There seem to be many ways to put this trip together but I'd appreciate hearing advice from people who've done this and know what the most sensible way is. THANKS!
