One of the friendlier more cost efficient tourist towns. Reasonable prices at stores and resteraunts, great places on the pier to eat, during the weekend the fishing boats sell their catch off the pier, we come from burnaby for this. Summer is busy, parking can be tough, the off-season is a great time to go to avoid the crowds

We stopped by this quaint little town on our way to Point Roberts, and found this little town to be friendly, quaint and magical (if you're into Once). The pier was really cool to be at. There are enough restaurants, coffee shops, and shops around. And enjoyable place to visit.

We had some time to kill in Richmond, so we took a side trip down to Steveston for an afternoon. This is a really pleasant resort-type town right on the water, with the usual collection of cute shops and restaurants. On the day that we were there, there was an on-the-water/off-the-boat fish market going on. I don't think you can... More

Steveston is a quaint village about 20mins drive from Richmond. It has a lovely boardwalk which takes you to a museum or you can visit the working fishing boats and buy fresh fish. There are lovely little shops, coffee shops and wonderful restaurants. We went whale watching with Vancouver whale watching co. Fantastic outing! We took a little shuttle from... More

We took friends from Australia on a bike tour around Richmond Waterfront and farm lands finishing in Steveston for a lovely picnic at Garry Point Park. Lots to do and see! Steveston is a great place to understand a little of Canadian fishing history.

Recently visited the village. First drive down we were only planning to stay for 1/2 hour or so and could not find any free parking (wasn't going to pay for such a short visit). Drove through and that was it. Second trip was with a whale tour - they picked us up at the hotel and we were able to... More

I visited Steveston with a friend last night and we enjoyed walking around the village, especially on the boardwalk by the water. There were lots of people out enjoying the sunset and it was a very peaceful place to take a stroll, sit down on the pier, read a bit about the history of the area, and grab a bite... More

Ate at Sockeye City restaurant and took a short walk on the pier. Was a great time. There was a band playing music which was nice too,.

We took the bus from Richmond to Steveston which was very easy and very cheap. We visited on a Monday morning and it was very quiet with not many people around. Steveston is a quaint town with lots of different types of shops but mainly those appealing to tourists although several remained closed whilst we were there. I would like... More

We were pleasently surprised by the history and the boardwalk. Plenty of interesting facts, signage, etc. Wandering around this area has to be on your "to do" list, just a nice spot to visit.
