    It was informative and interesting. I do believe the directional signage could be better. Loved the coupon for Ft Langley. We went there the next day.

    The entire experience was excellent from the video covering the salmon and herring trade to the detailed labels. The free tour of the canning line by Lauren brought the whole operation to life. You could vividly imagine what it would be like to be a worker there in freezing weather with your hands immersed in cold water all day long. Learned about the Japanese internment, even of third generation Canadians, and the Chinese Exclusion Act. A must visit.

    Richmond, BC is a great alternative to staying in Vancouver. Airport is actually here and easy to get to. Steveston is a quaint fishing town with many eating establishments. The park has trails and great views as well as connecting to West Dyke Trail for awesome biking and walking. Homes are beautiful and very peaceful. Stay is highly recommended

    Despite living in BC all my life, I actually came across this site purely by chance on a recent trip to Vancouver/Richmond. What a wonderfully preserved historic site! I enjoyed the variety of sights offered, from the living quarters to the working areas. As both a history lover, and a nautical geek, this place was a treat for the senses! Definitely will come back for another look around.

    This is a beautiful and very well maintained Buddhist temple with the largest statue of Buddha in entire North America. The complex is beautiful with cherry blossom trees and a pond.

    While there are lots of activities available in this large multi-purpose park, this report focuses in the north end where the lake and gardens are situated.
    After being closed for some time (it feels like years) the "lakes" area has been reopened, and a pleasant peaceful place it is. I enjoyed getting a few steps in while watching the water, the geese, and the wonderful landscaping.
    If you are in the area on business or visiting someone in the nearby hospital, destress by coming here for a walk or a sit - you'll be glad you did.

    Its a great mall, just remember to bring cash! Lots of places in the food court will only accept cash. I have been here many times and that will always be the case

    Arrived around noon to find the parking lots packed. Actually, not that surprising after four days of rain. Unlike the many forested parks we locals enjoy in dryer times, I have come to avoid dirt trails in most parks, as they have turned to mud! The gravel base and good drainage here is ideal for a stroll in Vancouver's rainy season, as can be attested to by the large crowd.
    Other positives: this is a straight line 4 km walk with views unlike those you will see anywhere else in Vancouver. Imagine looking EAST to the airport and watching planes take off. Look south to the ferry terminal and north to UBC - I know; different, eh? For us old fellas, there's a porta-potty at the far end, and a proper bathroom at the parking lot.
    So, even in winter, consider this good gravel base a great place to catch up on your steps.

    A relaxing and educational walk in the middle of the City Of Richmond. It has an education centre that often feature birds and bugs for school and visitors. It’s very well designed you cannot get lost. Just follow the signs and it takes you around in a loop.

    What do we look for in a shopping mall? Lots of parking for those coming by car, proximity to public transit for the rest of us? Check. Large enough we can do all our shopping in one trip? Check. Wide aisles for strolling? Check. Well lit with clean washrooms? Check. Good selection of eateries? Check.
    Clearly, this mall meets all these criteria. It's been about a year since I was last here, and not surprised to see they continue to meet their own high standards.

    This was a fantastic experience to view first hand Olympic medals and cauldrons used over the past 50 years or so to light the Olympic torch. Extremely interesting to see the Nazi propaganda that was the 1936 Berlin games. Many interactive activities for old and young to enjoy firsthand. Great films to help you better understand the Olympic sacrifices athletes must do to prepare. As an American, found it fair and also many American athletes were featured. Of course the Canadian Hockey team is front and center!
