A quaint fishing Village full of atmosphere especially at weekends where fresh fish of so many varieties are sold from the boats.
A walk along the foreshore to the historical part with heritage buildings are so informative.
Savour the flavours of Steveston in one of the many restaurants. We lunched at the Sockeye City Grill on superb halibut and prawns at a reasonable price. Can recommend an afternoon here doing the same.
We travelled by Skytrain to Richmond-Brighouse and then on Bus 401 to Steveston Village.

Steveston is a charming, small fishing village where you can view or buy fresh catch and enjoy the sights and sounds. We enjoyed seeing and visiting with several dogs out for a walk with their owners. One fish n chips place looked very popular by the crowd there (we didn't try it) and there was a small snack shop above the fishing boats that sold the propellor potatoes and a few other tasty items. A few tourist shops too. A nice brief break away from the traffic and crowds of Vancouver and Richmond.

The Japanese historic area is not visible from the tourist/wharf/shopping/historic area. Walk easterly along the waterfront on the boardwalk (take your water bottle!) Go past the new, and not so quaint, commercial section, which as of Sept. was still unoccupied. I would think this might be 1/2 mile total to this Japanese fishing village. It was thriving until 1914 when there was a massive land slide near Hope/Boston Bar during the construction of the Canadian National Railway which destroyed the salmon run. (Therefore Hell's Gate Airtram attraction) The Japanese canneries had no salmon and so switched to boat repair. All of the remaining old structures are in good repair and are set above the Steveston Harbor/Fraser River. Very picturesque. There is also the manager's home that is fully furnished w/family mementos. Quite historic. Several other buildings are open and more are being repaired. Very much worth the long stroll along the harbor. Flowers were blooming, geese and ducks floating.....just lovely. (note that if you park near Pajo's in the gravel lot that there is a parking fee!!! not much signage. We were so concerned about getting Cousin's scooter off of the gravel and on to the sidewalk that all 4 of us forgot to pay for parking...the result was a $30 ticket!!! )
