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.

watch people, have any wonderful meals you want..buy art from the artist in local areas. this street is not to be missed. you will experience everything you want for blocks, soon there will be no parking or cars below, as i heard this will be a more walking and sitting area below the wall.
