The businesses have made the best of this location and its architecture. The restaurants and coffee houses have great ambiance. If you are visiting Charlottetown, it is certainly worth a visit. BUT It seems to me that the staff in some places don't really try...More

We were fortunate enough to be visiting PEI during their Farm Day in the City event, which was held along Victoria Row. There are shops of all kinds, many restaurants, and nice areas just to sit. A nice place to visit

We unfortunately came on Thanksgiving Monday and most of the shops were closed up. But a fantastic set up and I can see that in the warmer months this is a happening place. We will be back next summer to confirm that is true!! lol

This is a great area to catch up on your shopping. Many, many stores, cafe's and places just to browse in. They also offer picnic tables that have chess/checker games printed on them. A must see just in general.

Seems like after 4 pm this place becomes a ghost town. From the way things were setup, it seems pretty neat to stroll around the market vendors with a city vibe. Maybe next time

This is a great are to stroll, have a cup of coffee and shop. There are nice little boutique type shops, restaurants and gift shops. Very conveniently located in the middle of town - certainly walking distance to everything. Worth a stop!

Quaint pedestrian street loaded with sidewalk cafes, great food and drink, usual shops! Adjacent the Guild Theater and The Conferation Center. Parking garage a block away.

this is one of the well kept secrets in town - the stores have all you would want to pick up as a tourist so that is why I am giving you fair warning about taking the wife - it could cost you

Love this area of Charlottetown just behind the Confederation theatre. They have movies playing on one of the buildings and a series of great patios to chose from. I love the atmosphere. Great beer and a restaurant or patio for everyone's taste!!

In 2016 it closed to traffic May 14th. I'm not sure the exact date it will open to traffic in the fall but we've been there as late as September 25th and it was still pedestrian only.
