Yes, if you didn't know already, Steveston Village is used for some location shoots for the show Once Upon a Time. But don't come here because you want a "Hollywood experience", come because it is a very charming and fun place to visit. In the summer months, this village really gets lively. In addition to the fishing heritage, the village... More

Have been to Richmond countless times and never knew about Steveston. Great to wander around and check out the fish and other sea critters being sold off the boats at the local dock. There are some neat little shops, consignment and antique shops here too as well as a great garden center. Worth the drive!

Steveston is a great place to spend the day walking around-window shopping in the multitude of unique shops, walking along the waterfront reading historical markers about the cannery and fishing heritage, the first Buddhist temple, Japanese cultural center, Trolley museum, and park. There is also a great farmer's market near the cannery on the weekend. If you have time to... More

We had the best crab at The King Crab Restaurant! It came with fries and corn on the cob. Steveston is quaint, not crowded.

The community of Steveston has worked very hard to restore this village. Take a step back in time and visit the different buildings. Each site has information to help guide you through what living in the area aprox 100 years ago was like. Bunkhouses, canneries, a typical home. Boarded walkways make it simple to stroll, enjoy the ocean and views,... More

During a six hour layover at the Vancouver Airport while on route to Hawaii, my husband & I had arranged to have relatives pick us up from the airport for a visit and lunch together. A work colleague of mine suggested that rather than dine at the airport strip, that we go to Steveston. Well, we are so glad we... More

we always go to Steveston when we are in Richmond. we enjoy walking along the water front and it is fun visiting the shops and restaurants. I enjoy Steveston more than Granville Island on certain visits. You can buy fresh salmon, shrimp and other fresh fish right off the fishing boats in the morning. There are some very nice restaurants... More

On a bike tour of The Pacific West coast, we stopped here for lunch and some ocean breezes. A quiet, seaside village south of Vancouver of shops, food places, crafts and boats, we enjoyed a take out lunch by the water and just vegged out a bit in the sunshine. Stroll along the water and relax or shop for unique... More

Fun fishing village to visit. There is a big choice in restaurants and they all serve fresh fish. The heritage buildings are well worth the visit.

We spent a relaxing sunny afternoon exploring Steveston! A unique little village with lovely shops and restaurants and very welcoming friendly folks. We even discovered that 'Once Upon A Time' is filmed here (no, we've never watched it but know people that are fans!) ... So that gives you and idea of it's quaintness. Enjoyed a great lunch at The... More
