Lovely spot in the world. Cracking feel around the place with lots of eateries,restaurants and bars. Bought a fresh salmon off one of the many fishing boats and had it on the BBQ 20 minutes later. Absolutely lovely.

Nice little small town area with some neat historical stuff. Great little shops as well. Good for a few hours but teens can get bored. As can husbands if you don't like waiting for you wife as she goes through the shops.

This is such a great area for spending a day wandering around. We love to browse all of the unique shops and boutique cafes. Hit up Blue Canoe patio for a great meal and, if you are lucky, watching the sea lions from your seat.

If you are in town and have wheels it is worth a visit to this little fishing village. Take a stroll along the pier. Check out the cannery and if you are looking for a good place to have fish and chips on a pier then you have come to the right place.

Looking to get a bit closer to the sea, we headed here on a sunny day in February, to see the TV show setting for Once Upon a Time (we had just missed the shoot by a day), enjoy the waterfront, stroll the boardwalk and visit the shops. Oh, and also have some great fish and chips. We accomplished all... More

This small old fishing and cannery village has been brought in to the 21st century without losing any of it's charm. There are specialty shops, very good restaurants and craft beer! Fusherman's Wharf in a Sunday mornings is worth a visit as all the fishermen sell directly from their own boat. Reallly interesting and fun. Don't leave without looking at... More

A fantastic gem located in the very corner of Richmond. With only a couple main streets, this village is awesome for daytime stroll. Check out the sites, enjoy the fresh air and visit the many cool and unique merchants or restaurants. It has a historical museum cannery you can visit. There's a fish sales float where you can buy direct... More

For those who love a maritime environment, the historic village of Steveston is a true gem! For those who just love a small village-by-the-sea kind of place with great restaurants and shops, this will suit you well too! Don't miss the markets during the summer and fresh fish & chips on the dock. Garry Point Park and the dyke walk... More
