Foto Friday – Victoria Drive … The Other Drive

1 Apr

March28,2016 252I have lived just off of Victoria Drive for almost 20 years and it’s a great stretch of road from the Fraser River to the Burrard Inlet.  It has many diversions along the way including the Victoria Diversion which connects it with Commercial Drive.  It sometimes feels like the little brother overshadowed by it’s bigger  more popular brother, The Drive (aka Commercial Drive). Victoria Drive doesn’t get the opportunity to shine quite as often or get the recognition it deserves. Victoria Drive is home to many long standing business such as the Vancouver Alpen Club at 33rd Avenue, many great ethnic restaurants from 54th to Kingsway and relative newcomer Second Nature Home on Victoria’s Diversion. Victoria Drive is also home to Trout Lake Community Centre as well as some unique new townhome developments located almost directly across the way. The structures are quite a contrast to some of the older character homes along this stretch of road.  Along Victoria Drive, there are some personal favourites including Figaro’s Gardens, Via Tevere Pizzeria and The Found and the Freed to name just a few.  We think this a pretty unique stretch of road filled with it’s own unique character and charm. So on this Foto Friday, we wanted to feature the many faces of Victoria Drive. Although we didn’t capture it all, here’s a snippet.
