Welcome to Downtown Courtenay
Welcome to the heart of Courtenay
When you walk down the street in the heart of downtown, life feels unhurried. The city is filled with trees and greenery, and there are plenty of locally owned cafes and restaurants to have a cup of coffee or meal where you can sit and watch the world go by. People smile at each other and say hello in our small city.
The heart of the boutique shopping district, Downtown Courtenay plays home to over 240 businesses. If you’re looking for the best of home décor, fashion, grocery stores, toys and games, sporting gear, artisan bakeries or any type of professional service, downtown is your first stop. Private galleries provide one-of-a-kind works that will intrigue the adventurous.
Entertainment and the arts flourish at the Sid Williams Theatre and the Comox Valley Art Gallery, and education is visual and fun at the Vancouver Island Regional Library and the Courtenay & District Museum and Palaeontology Centre – all found in the heart of the city.
