Why is downtown Victoria the best place to be this holiday season?

Is it that downtown is like a vast, perfectly instagrammable, outdoor shopping wonderland? Complete with spectacular seasonal sights and 1500+ locally-owned and operated businesses, with everything from niche boutiques and national brands, to epic eateries, cozy cafes and unforgettable entertainment?

Or could it be because gifting for everyone on your list is made oh-so-easy when you head downtown? One-of-a-kind finds or experiences for your quirky bestie? Check. Night-out with a lager-loving pal? Done. Gizmo for gadget-giddy dad? Yep. Romantic night out with swoon-worthy date? Easy.

Downtown is all that, and so much more. Why? Because at the heart of it all…

Downtown Victoria is the local destination that’s as unique as you.
