There are cute boutique shops of all kinds, great restaurants, cafes, a real fishing fleet with fish for sale right from the docks. The best fish and chips at Pajos. A boardwalk with sea views. The large and scenic Garry Point Park where people fly kites, walk and ride their bikes. Located in the extreme south-west corner of Richmond BC, in the mouth of the Fraser River. A really good kid's park and community centre with library. Views to Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. Good walking area on the dyke that goes around the south, west and north of Richmond. A great day out for all.

Steveston is a lovely little fishing village. It is a close drive from Vancouver and an extension of
Richmond, but feels like it is completely separate. This is still a working fishing village and at the beginning of the 1900s was one of the busiest fish canning areas in North America. With the diminishing of the fishing industry world wide Steveston has been made attractive to tourists. It is a peaceful place at the mouth of the Fraser River as it enters the Pacific. it has numerous coffee shops and a variety of restaurants with different kinds of food-Japanese, Chinese, western, Malaysian, seafood, good pizzas at Steveston Pizza etc. It is famous for fish and chips and people drive here just for them. It has gift shops and fresh fish can be bought directly off the boats as they come in. It has done a good job in maintaining it's 'oidness'. There are no high buildings and most are made of wood giving it a nice ambiance. It is also the town used to represent a fishing village in Maine for the TV show 'Once Upon a Time'. A nice day trip for those staying near by. There is a nice walk out to Gary Point park and some other walks on the nearby dykes. Bicycles can be rented, and as the area is flat it is easy riding. Whale watching is also available. There are also historical sites that have to do with the history of fishing and canning in the area.

Can get all you need. Beautiful place ! Shop - for food, items, gifts and much more. Fresh food and great scenery. You can meet someone for coffee/tea/smoothie in one of the many cute coffee places. You can walk around, so much to do and see. So much always going on in town - live movie making, family events, charity events, seasonal events etc. It feels like family.

Fresh salmon and other wild caught fish on display and for sale.
Nice shops and restaurants there. I like the fresh seafood served in that place. I also liked to shoot some nice pictures of the village.
