After the frenzy of a day of shopping in Richmond, this is a good place to just hang out and relax for a while. Also a nice area to go for walks or a enjoy a cup of coffee in a small coffee shop.

This village should be your list to visit when in Vancouver. Steveston was the hub of fishing in the 1800's. Fishermen would bring their huge catches to the many canneries in the area and then tall ships from many countries would come for the processed fish. Steveston is at the mouth of the Mighty Fraser River and the Georgia Strait.... More

Pick a nice day since you'll be walking outside around the points of interest. It's a fascinating part of Canadian history and best enjoyed in good weather.

A great place to visit in Richmond. We walked along the promenade -- beautiful and very picturesque! Lots of touristy stores but still a fun place to browse for souvenirs. We arrived here late in the morning but before the lunch crowds. Go early, avoid the crowds.

Nice small-town feel not far from the heart of Richmond. Good place for a romantic walk. The park at the end is loaded with white geese. Watch the sunset?

If you've never been to the fishing village you must go. Especially on a sunny spring or summer day. Sight, sound and can buy fresh fish from boats. There are many restaurants and shops that are very good and interesting and make an enjoyable afternoon.

A lovely promenade. Buy shrimp, salmon, abd other seafood's right from the people that harvest them. For the best fish and chips, I recommend Pajo's right on the water.

Steveston Village is a scenic historic fishing village, just fifteen minutes outside of Richmond. There is something for everyone here! Fresh fish off the boats every Saturday and Sunday. Wonderful outdoor Farmers Market every other Sunday from May thru October and smaller indoor market held at the Georgia Cannery in the winter months. Intricate, interesting stores to browse and find... More
