It was scenic and was a very charming village. All of the fishing boats were amazing. The amount of fish they caught in 3 hours was incredible. A must see if you are in the area.

Everything is within walking distance. Start at the community Center then walk through the park along Moncton Street . Hit the Cannery Row Restaurant it will have anything you want. Follow the street right down to Garry Point Park past the ole cannery and hotel. Then step around the sand spits and rocked dykes. View the boats coming to dock... More

We found this on Trip Advisor and I would recommend it to anyone. It was a cute little town. Easy to find parking and LOVED the wharf with all the fishing boats you could by fish from. If I had been able to buy some I would have loved to. We had lunch at a restaurant on the pier and... More

We found this place on the last night of our trip - what a delight. It's a quaint little place attached to Richmond, has beautiful waterfront with several restaurants and little tourist shops. It was a beautiful evening so we enjoyed a walk along the little boardwalk after a delicious seafood dinner right on the water.

Beautiful quaint fishing village, very clean and beautiful seaside properties. The shops looked like they would be great but we got there at 5 and mostly all closed. I thought this was odd as many tourists wandering around, very busy and lively on a warm summer night on a weekend. PAJO famous fish and chips over rated and expensive.

great place to find really good food right on river. Cooler temps from water make it a nice day from Vancouver. Small shops, not hugely touristic. Nice break for a half day excursion.

Great place to walk around, visit a local bakery, have a coffee, and then go down to the fishing boats to purchase some real fresh seafood. Lots of good restaurants also.

If you love scenic and are open to the way things were decades before the world became digital. Then be transported back in time to an era when the fishing industry ruled and every net cast was gold and exploding with bounty. This tiny little village of Steveston was a force to be reckoned with, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery... More

A fabulous area to explore and smell the west coast fishing history and current activity. Lots of seafood restaurants, quaint gift shops and modern conveniences too! The crosswalk that goes diagonal and stops ALL traffic at once invites observation. The only down side to the area is the lack of accommodation. I would spend a weekend here often if there... More
