This is a nice place to take a nice walk and take in all the sights around the harbor. There are lots of restaurants, shops and entertainment along the pier. We especially enjoyed a couple of elderly gentlemen who were playing the bagpipes.

Another part of the whole picture. City is compact and walk-able. People 'uber' friendly. Expensive is arbitrary. Deals can be found hotel and food wise. Just search the sites for deals.

We have walked kilometres all over downtown. There are interesting buildings with plaques to read, great stores (Roberta's Hats), wonderful restaurants. I can't believe the super breakfast restaurants in downtown! It is a shame to see the number of street people but given the temperatures...More

When going to Victoria the entire downtown area is a must visit. Most Downtown hotels are within walking distance so you can stroll downtown and look at all the interesting stores. Very walking friendly!
