Steveston is a charming village one must visit the Brittania shipyards, the Georgia Cannery and Garry Point. It’s all very walkable, lots of good shopping and restaurants. I especially enjoy the walking trails along the river.

great spot to wander and take in the culture of a fishing port. We weren't there to buy any of the fresh catch, just wander around. Love the atmosphere especially on a misty morning. Lots of great potential for taking photos. Glad we found it
