But because there was no children's jumper for a child it is (laughs), Aloha took it. Exhibit mature and than I thought, anything large! Enjoy children's play space, because without the cold quite long and can be seen!

  • A fun adventure for the family. During Canada's 150 birthday year it's free entry! It's in beautiful historic steveston village. Go for a scenic walk along the boardwalk and check out the local fair. There is a farmer's market within the cannery on Sundays!

Where to stay in Richmond

Many travelers visit Richmond on their way to or from Vancouver International Airport, so the city's accommodations cater primarily to visitors in transit. Bridgeport Road, which leads directly to the airport, offers the best selection, with comfortable but rather dull chain hotels offering a clean, comfortable place to rest before a long flight. If you're looking for something with a bit more character, head to Blundell Road to choose from a range of independent guesthouses and bed and breakfasts.
