Old City district and downtown Nanaimo
The Old City Quarter is nestled in the heart of Nanaimo, just steps from the downtown core. Consisting of a collection of owner operated businesses, from specialty food stores to metaphysical treasures to wealth managers and chiropractors, the Old City Quarter oozes vibrancy and community.
Originally the economic centre of the city, the area is a charming mix of revitalized heritage buildings and thoughtful new development. It has become the number one destination for shopping in Nanaimo and a hub for doers and relaxers alike.
The "Old City" refers to everything north and west of Albert St., to Pine St. and Comox Rd. This is considered by many to be the finest real estate in Nanaimo, with about 20 city blocks of well-maintained craftsman bungalows, a police station, bus terminals, restaurants, shopping, and all the historic interest of old Nanaimo.
