Love our downtown area, it's got a few blocks of really great little stores, and it's very near the river and the park.

I always love the downtown area. I love the unique shops and places to eat. It's clean and since it's built on a hill, you get a leg workout.

I have been to this location many times during my annual trips to the area and the shops in Courtenay never disappoint. We especially enjoy going down 5th street and then stopping for some hot chocolate and baked goods at one of the local shops.

A walk downtown here is neat. Once even met a man with a parrot on his shoulder. Both he and the parrot were friend,y and talkative. We like the small shop atmosphere as opposed to shopping malls. Unique and quaint. I love it!
