South of the Confederation Centre of the Arts is Richmond Street. It is better known as Victoria Row. The moniker stems from the Victorian Period (late 19th century) brick facades lining the one-block avenue between Great George and Queen Streets. Tourists are attracted to the boutique shops and quaint restaurants. Victoria Row is especially busy when the cobblestone street is closed to traffic (May through October), the cafes are serving outdoors and live music brightens the ambiance.
