We come here regularly for walks along the pier, historical area, and park. The fish and chips are great and the scenery (at least on a clear day) is stunning. It is among the best places to visit in the greater Vancouver area.

This little village is a must see! The locals were out fishing at 8am along the river. Apparently, there is a lot of filming that goes on here also.

I love Steveston and the beautiful river views. There is a terrific trail system in the area where you can stroll the water front and work up an appetite. The restaurants ( many with outdoor seating) are great and offer a wide selection of items including many fish and seafood entrees. There is a local farmer's market on alternating weekends... More

Got off the 402 bus and walked two blocks to Steveston Landing. It was a sunny Saturday and lots of fishing boats docked to sell their catch: frozen tuna, sockeye, catfish, rock cod, halibut and fresh shrimps, live sole. We bought 5 live sole for ten bucks. The village is dotted with restaurants (Dave's fish and chips) and coffee shops... More

Steveston must be visited while in YVR. It is a great place where you can feel an amazing atmosphere. You can just get some drink and appreciate the view and/or have a fish and chips.

I love walking in Steveston! You can say hello to absolutely everyone you see and most of the time get a smile and hello back. My favourite places are the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, Britannia Shipyards, and Garry Point. There are so many restaurants you could dine at a different one every night and not be disappointed.

It is a small fishing village in Richmond. If you walk along its streets, you feel like you have gone back in time for about 30 years. It has lots of little shops, quite a variety of restaurants, mainly seafood restaurants. On the weekends and holidays, you can buy fish and seafood right off the fishing boats. There is a... More

I live right on the Richmond Seawalk. Unfortunately one has to endure driving through Richmond proper to get there. Richmond is a very boring modern wannabe Hong Kong with ugly glass and steel skyscrapers going up EVERYWHERE and paralyzed by more and more traffic everyday as immigrants who don't know how to drive (beware!) smash up their Mercede's, BMW's and...
