We always enjoy walking the streets of "Old Town" in Victoria. Just up from Wharf Street, you will find some nice cobbled stone streets that intertwine through small shops & restaurants. Enjoy the artistic work displayed on the walls of the buildings.

Lots of alley ways and small shops. Places to explore. Some are a bit touristy but most are fun and different. Sure beats a mall. The architecture has been saved in Victoria and it's great to have all the history around you. Could walk for hours although it is small. How could you not love a 'street' called Fan-Tan Alley?

Close to the Port Angeles ferry terminal. Old Town is not real big so it easy to walk. There is lots of new and re-construction, and people are living downtown. That means we felt safe and found good, non-touristy places to dine, have coffee, and shop.

There are old buildings still in use, and is a place where in the Old Days Victoria was a busy shipping hub, with factories , and city and government offices. These old buildings remain as they will, having had there share of structural upgrading. Now still in use and thriving with shops, and offices.
and offices. .An interesting walk about for the architecture and Victoria`s beginnings
. An intersting walk for the architecture .

I am so pleased that the city of Victoria have made it a priority to keep their historical buildings. What a beautiful city! The architecture is amazing and the downtown is so active. There is so much to see. I would like to see those historical plaques on significant buildings so you can read about the history. If I had to chose a large city in Canada to live in I would pick Victoria.
