Great boutique stores, plenty of parking on a rainy day. It was a great way to spend an afternoon. Also, very popular location for tv and film sets.

Great walk along the dike to this attraction, we found nicely set grounds, neat fish sales, but not much for tours etc... It was still very pleasant

I went to the beautiful Steveston Village today to take the dog for a walk and ended up walking by the set of Once Upon A Time! I love this part of Richmond! Lots of nice stores and attractions. Watching the boats reminds me of being in Newfoundland!
