We visited because they were hosting the Festival of Trees. Christmas trees decorated in various theme lined the second and third floors. The mall itself it pretty small but has a variety of choices. The fourth floor is the food court.

Lots of nice stores. Quite a few local kids on the weekend but all seemed well behaved. Lots of security. Nice food court. Nice place to kind of relax in an otherwise hectic town overrun with tourists.

You can do a lot done here. Shop, shop and shop or eat and apply for a passport. We like this on a rainy day. It's very well decorated on a seasonal basis which adds to the experience of the mall.

I wouldn't necessarily put this on my to do list but if you were looking to do some shopping, this is a nice mall. It has lots of stores and a good sized food court. It is right downtown.

Last year we moved to Victoria and wanted to furnish our new condo. We purchased a lot of furniture from the bay. They say 50% off but they are actually overpriced so their sale price is more realistic. One item we purchased, round wood table,...More
