Great area to spend an afternoon or early evening. The town seems to close up early so try to get there by 6:00 PM. Lots of options for fresh seafood, people watching, and relaxing on the wharf for a beautiful sunset.

Nice walkway and visitors booth right along the waterfront. various restaurants and shops, and the fisherman's wharf for picking up fresh caught fish and seafood, for dinner! Too bad we forgot a cooler.

Stayed I Richmond and drove to Steveston at the last minute. It was a beautiful small village right in the city but had small village feel. Walked along the pier and had excellent fish and chips. There was a an outdoor movie showing at the cannery and of course, we walked down Moncton and took in all the Storybrooke sets.... More

I love taking pictures of fishing boats and although it was raining we had to go and snap some boats, snack on some fish and chips and walk around.

This is a very small fishing village. You will find about 15 boats tied up selling fish, crabs, shrimp and urchin on the dock. A lot of this fish was previously caught and frozen. There are a few small stores to see and visit.

While in Steveston Village I got to eat at a wonderful restaurant called Shady Island. The food was very tasty. We walked along the Fisherman's Wharf and got to soak up the warm sun rays. There are quite a few shops in this village but they are not spaced out so walking to them is not hard or tedious. We... More

I was pleasantly surprised with the lad-back atmosphere of the town. We had initially come to Steveston to see the fictional town "Storybrooke" which is from the TV show "Once Upon a Time". While Stevenston did not disappoint us with seeing things from "Stroybrooke," we also found the shops with unique items to buy and the shop owners very friendly.... More

With some time to kill between fights Steveston was close to the airport and made for a nice evening on the coast. Kind of reminded me of the tourist sites in the caribbean just a little chillier. By the time we got there most everything was closing up but the ice cream was good the view pleasant and worth the... More

Not only are there some well preserved building outlining the history of canning in the region, a short walk away there are some lovely restaurants and bars on the marina where modern day fishing boats are moored.
