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.

I don't know if you rate it a 3 or 4 or 5, but it is one of the more fun places to visit in the lower mainland (Vancouver/Richmond/Burnaby) I will give it a 4. It's a nice stroll in an original fishing village - at the end of the street. Literally 20 mins max from the airport and residential... More

Many travellers to Vancouver think of Richmond as a bedroom community if they consider it at all. But don't miss out on Steveston Village, where you will find: Tours at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery; Britannia Shipyards; a good choice of restaurants right on the waterfront; shops which include everything from tourist souvenirs to high-end antiques, fresh fish off the...

Have enjoyed several trips to Steveston though out the years. The latest in October and enjoyed the area shops and the Halloween decorations, The Cannery, which is a former fish cannery for the village, is said to be haunted by a friendly ghost. The Halloween tours include a narrative of the lives of those who worked long hours and sometimes... More

Steveston is a great place to spend part of a day, lots of attractions for most members of the family, museums, whale watching, fresh fish from fishermen, lots of restaurant's to match anybody's taste and budget. I live five minutes away and ride my bike or walk there on a regular basis. It is the setting of the TV show... More

Although Steveston Village has been engulfed with new town houses and condo's it still remains unique. The best fish and chips to be had. Watching the freighters and fishing boats coming and going ..the sound of the fog horn on a foggy night..I just love it!! You can rude along the stretch of dyke that goes through farmland walk around... More
