Steveston downtown hasn't changed much but the surrounding area is crammed with apartments and condos. WOW! We did a river walk and couldn't believe all the added dwellings. Mulit family housing galore! The village is still cute and worth visiting. Love all the little shops....More

Steveston is a really neat community with a lot of history. The many fishing boats are very interesting and educational. A great area for a stroll at any time of the year.

I have always come to Steveston on every trip to Richmond Vancouver. It had a lovely high street full of little independent shops that added to it's charm as a vibrant, working fishing village. Sadly over the years the number of independent shops has fallen,...More
