Hudson District


inset-loveThe Hudson District is an up-and-coming neighbourhood at the heart of Victoria’s ‘living local’ movement, an amenity-rich hub of culture and entertainment.   There’s plenty to do here. Begin your day with a workout at Hudson Yoga Studio, then head over to browse local vendors at the Victoria Public Market at The Hudson. Afterwards, sit and enjoy freshly roasted espresso with friends at 2% Jazz while planning your evening.
On the weekends, take a short walk to see Victoria Royals WHL hockey, Harbour Cats baseball, or the latest production at the Empire Theatres of Cineplex Odeon. If you prefer shopping, trendy stores and local boutiques surround the neighbourhood in every direction, and you’re never far from the Inner Harbour.   The Hudson District is a growing community – it’s a place for people who appreciate the social, liveable, and functional conveniences that a truly ‘local’ neighbourhood provides.
