Government Street, the main shopping strip that runs through downtown, offers travelers an assortment of the usual souvenir stores, but also some excellent must-visit boutiques and fun pubs as well. Stop in at Munro's Books, one of the best bookshops in Canada, and Cowichan Trading, a fine First Nations arts-and-crafts emporium.
