Historic Fishing Village of Steveston

May 14, 2010

Born and raised in Richmond, BC, I consider myself a Steveston girl. Nestled in the southwest corner of Richmond is this little village. Locals and visitors would say that it’s a lively destination for shopping, dining and exploring where the Fraser River and Pacific Ocean meet.

Steveston is home to the largest commercial fishing fleet in Canada, two National Historic Sites, and the best dockside fish n’ chips you’ll find just about anywhere. You can pretty much walk the entire area and it’s friendly for all ages and abilities with its flat dykes and boardwalks.

Plenty to see and do with unique shops, a wooden seaside boardwalk, waffle cones, waterfront restaurants, fishing boats, whale-watching and even deep-sea fishing. Who knew?

Rent a bike and cycle along the dykes with breathtaking views of wildlife, sunsets, a working harbour and other numerous delights.

Visitors can find several family friendly events taking place throughout the year. I really enjoy Salmonfest and the Farmers Market:
