Touring the Old Town of Victoria and learning about the history of how Victoria developed to become what it is today was fantastic. We had a guide but it would not be that difficult to do a self tour.

We walk these streets every weekend and find something new to enjoy every time. We have started to looking into everything (restaurants or shops) as you will find some nice / unique things to do or see!! All of the streets in Old Town connect together.

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.
