Steveston is a neighbourhood on the south-west tip of Richmond. It is home to National Historic Gulf of Georgie Cannery and Fisherman's Wharf. Much of the area was declared a heritage zone in 1960, which is why it has been a bit frozen in time. You can buy the famous Steveston Spot Prawns and Seafood right off of a boat or at a fish shop. If you aren't into cooking your own seafood, you can have delicious fish and chips right on the water at Pajo's! As you are walking along the streets, you may notice some familiar store fronts. Steveston is the home of ABC's Once Upon a Time and many others.
