LIttle village manages to preserve a fair amount of the character of early Steveston and early coastal BC, through preservation and museums plus management of the town's size. It blends the heritage with many appealing boutique retail outlets. Worth a visit, and pleasant place for shopping even for Richmond locals. Japanese heritage here too, including Steveston Buddhist temple, various gardens... More

The Steveston area offers a very good look at the history of fishing and canneries in the area. In addition, it shows off the history of the Japanese fishing village and the boat building in the area prior to the internment camps.

The best time to experience the village is on a sunny day - it's brimming with good will and all kinds of visitors. Families come to the dock for ice cream at Timothy's. Pajo's Fish and Chips has a line-up to get onto their raft, where you sit on rustic benches and eat out of "newspaper". Fishing boats are docked... More

There are many things available to everyone who comes to Steveston Village. The village hosts many restaurants that cater to many ethnic choices, many beauty saloons and spas to pamper yourself, parks for the kids, shops and store for all ages and interests, and views to photograph. It is a great place to spend the day.

Born and raised in Steveston, it has come a long way from its distinction as the Salmon Processing Capital of the World back in the early 1900s to early 1970s. Gone are the fish processing plants and up rises the townhouses and condos. The quaint place has excellent walking flat trails as well as some of the best fish and... More

Once the home of the BC salmon fishing fleet Steveston has now become a small tourist attraction. Restaurants for all tastes galore, souvenir, curious stores and very little parking. In the summer there is a farmers market some Sundays and other celebrations, Salmon Festival Canada day parade. Large container ships can be seen often going up the S Arm of... More

Steveston is a quaint and idyllic river/seaside community - a break from the rest of bustling Richmond, even for those of us who reside here. A great place for a walk or bike ride on the boardwalk or around Garry Point Park; lots of little shops to check out as well. Fish and Chips on the dock at Pajos or... More

Steveston Heritage Fishing Village has long had a historical significance in the growth and development of Richmond. One of the great things about Richmond is the care and effort the City puts into preserving and restoring the heritage in the area, and this historical cannery town is a must for anyone visiting Richmond or even living nearby. When you visit... More

There are so many attraction is Steveston. From the many fish and chips restaurants to the fresh fish to be purchased right from the fisherman on the dock. On weekends it can be very busy in the summer time. In the past several years it has been a magnet for movie shoots. It is a vibrant area that is seeing... More
