I live in newly renovated townhouse across the road to Fisherman's Wharf in Victoria. In the historic neighbourhood of James Bay with the Pacific Ocean on one side and the Inner Harbour on the Other, both are within 3 minutes of my front door.
You can also walk to downtown in 10-20 minutes. The Inner Harbour, Parliament buildings and Empress are 10-15 minutes from my home.
One end of my road is Fisherman's Wharf, the other is Beacon Hill Park.
Most attractions are walkable.
