Safe place to walk but many old rundown empty buildings. A sprinkling of tourist restaurants and shops.

This is street is very similar to the Government Street comprising old buildings housing restaurants, bars and some retail shops. Not bad for an evening stroll. Joins government Street at the southern portion.

Love the walk and energy that is in the area of BC capital. Friendly folks. Many choices of food and of course the street vendors selling their wares.

Nothing special of a street. It fronts the dock and the water, has a couple of restaurants but is generally very ordinary if not a bit worn. Does not have many shops and also felt deserted in the evening.

Victoria is an old historic town with several stunning places to visit. Better of all is that almost everything if Free. You can just walk around and visit all places for free.
