“Fun Place--especially when they are filming!”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Lovely little fishing village that gets used for the filming of Once Upon a Time. So if you want to see Prince Charming on a cell phone, this is for you! Nice stores and cafes, great seafood at The Chart House.

“A Vanishing Heritage”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Steveston is one of the very few remaining locations on the lower mainland where fishboats dock and where one can buy fresh fish or shellfish. Quite apart from this, while now somewhat gentrified, the village still retains a lot of its historic atmosphere, while also offering a wide variety of upscale shops and restaurants. A delightful place to visit on a sunny afternoon.

“Steveston is a Great Afternoon Destination”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Once you find parking - Steveston is a great place to wander about, visit the shops, dine on the wharf and buy plants at the garden shop....finish your afternoon with an ice cream cone...I think there are 5 shops to serve you. Dash to the docks to buy a fish for supper and simply enjoy your day..... Ladner Harbour - you are next to try fixing up the harbour??
