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!

Steveston Fishing Village is a lovely place tucked away along the dyke of Richmond BC! You can stroll along the pier and have ice cream or fish and chips or just go down the dock to purchase local seafood sold by bc fisherman! A must see even if you're not a tourist!

Charming village of Steveston is the best kept secret of those living in Richmond. This quaint historic "village" has some great shops, restaurants, excellent parks and walks along the South Fraser River. The Historic Steveston Cannery is a sight to see for those interested on how the fishing industry helped build up this area. We love Steveston! This is also... More

Fish and Chips is kind of touristy but it's very good, go on weekends and stock up on seafood. Last time we went, they had whole, live sea urchins for sale off a boat. Cheapest way I know to buy unprocessed Uni and fresh too. I suppose you could go scuba diving for them just about anywhere in BC but... More

There is something about being away from the city and hanging out by the seaside. Its so pretty there and there are some lovely restaurants and shops. It is the town in Once upon a time tv show so that is quite fun to see and even better when you get to see filming happening. Its a great atmosphere there.... More

Fishing wharfs where you can see some people working in the fishing business. Places to eat and shops in the area. Pricey gift shops.Locals were not very happy with tourist and tend to ignore them. Nice to walk around on a good day.

Quaint, good for a leisurely stroll, arts and crafts and coffee. The Brittania Shipyards museum is well worth the visit via the boardwalk.

Stevenston hasn't lost its small town appeal, and eating at one of the numerous restaurants on the pier, facing the marina, is always a delight.
