Part of this town of Steveston is used for the TV show Once Upon a Time. This was the reason we came to this town. There is still a bakery that has a sign outfront Story Book. After checking out the downtown we headed to the wharf for food. It is a very busy spot with many places to eat.... More

When visiting Vancouver we were fortunate enough to spend a day in this lovely, though touristy, small fishing village. With interesting shops and great restaurants and a quaint little harbour full of fishing boats, this is a lovely place to spend a day out. Located approximately a 45 minute drive from Vancouver, definitely worth a pleasant visit.

So much to see so be sure to wear good walking shoes. Interesting shops. Be there early as a lot of things close down at 3 in the afternoon.
