Top 10 Reasons For Loving Victoria - #2

posted on May 04

2. Downtown Victoria.  An eclectic mix of the old and the new.  Amid the many historic buildings there are shiny new ones, and the many new condominium buildings in the downtown area have created a new vibrancy as more and more people live, work and play downtown.

During the height of the tourist season, usually May - September, things ramp-up as visitors frequent the sidewalk cafes, pubs and other eateries.  When the Alaska Cruise Ships are in town (sometimes as many as 3 at one time) things get really busy.  It's a whole lot of fun though, and it's great to rub shoulders with people from all over the world and from all walks of life.

In the winter season things settle down to a more relaxing pace. The coffee shops are still busy and downtown shoppers go about their errands, while "Snowbird Visitors" poke around the antique shops, art galleries and museums or attend live theatre performances by the Victoria Symphony Orchestra, the Pacific Opera Society or listen to jazz at Hermans Jazz Club, or any number of visiting popular music artists in night club venues around town.

At any time of the year there's always lots to see and do in downtown Victoria and that's part of the reason why we're focussed on providing great vacation and short-term rental accommodations in the downtown area. When you stay in one of our properties, you can virtually step out of the front door of your building and into the heart of downtown Victoria.

So, forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and stay downtown....(with apologies to Petula Clark:-)
