George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary

Situated upon 850 acres along the Fraser estuary at the mouth of the Fraser River, the George C. Reifel Migratory bird sanctuary is a must for birding enthusiasts. Easy hiking trails, bird blinds, and panoramic views await. See eagles, owls, hawks, falcons, waterfowl, songbirds, and the elusive Sandhill Crane.

Reviewed By Margaret G - Lowestoft, United Kingdom

Great walk in the autumn Sunshine, saw mainly ducks, and chickadees, which you can hand feed (buy seeds from the reception desk and feed the right seeds to each bird type).
We were also lucky to see an Owl hiding in the trees. The sanctuary is reasonable size and I was pleased to see an eco porta loo half way round. Good views over the estuary.

I took the ferry with a friend from Vancouver to Victoria and back. The trip was on time and very affordable. The boat itself is comfortable and has several places where you can get snacks or a meal if you are hungry. The views are beautiful, even in rainy weather. On the way back, the captain spotted Orcas and announced it to the whole boat so that we could all see!

Steveston Heritage Fishing Village

A 19th-century frontier seaport is reborn more than 100 years later into a picturesque working fishing village.

Reviewed By William C - Vancouver, Canada

The next sunny day we have, pull out the bikes put 'em on the rack and drive westwards right to the end of Westminster Highway in Richmond.
There's free parking just before you get to the dyke so leave your car there and suit up for one of the nicest rides around.
Up on the dyke it's graveled and flat so the only thing to set you back is the possibility of a wind coming off the ocean, an ocean which is right next to you as you head south to Steveston.
Remember though, what you have to fight to get there will blow you back home, and vice versa, so don't each too much lunch or imbibe too much while you're in the village if you're facing a headwind on the return trip.
The village itself is a charming little resort these days with lots of restaurants, knick-knack stores, beautiful oceanside walks and a Cannery Museum.
(Once there were many of them running 7 days a week 24 hours a day!)
Freshly caught fish/ shrimp/salmon can be bought at the main wharf much cheaper than the stores, but you should check what's in season if you have anything in particular in mind. A reminder that it's not such a good idea to ride with a ten pound dead salmon in your backpack.. better to drive your car down there after the ride!
You can easily while away a couple of hours and not notice the time slipping by.
I usually take my lunch at Pajo's floating fish and chip shop right on the waterfront, it's starting to get a bit pricey but one meal will do two of you if you're not starving.
Don't worry if there's a big line up because they know how to move the crowds through very quickly
You can carry on riding along the riverfront if you like, and a mile or two down the path you'll find London Farm, where you can get an English Style afternoon tea for a very reasonable price. ( It's not always open so check the website before you make the effort)
They serve the tea inside the farmhouse which is still maintained in the style of the early 1900s with photographs and furniture from that period, they also have a wonderful garden you can walk around.Some people plan their wedding ceremonies there too.
You get the full treatment, with fine bone China teapots and cups along with scones biscuits and jam.
They have their own brand of tea there,I forget the name for the moment but I''m pretty sure it's called London Lady Blend. It's delicious tea and you can buy packages to take home!
The way back to Westminster Highway can be a struggle if the ocean wind's in your face but there's lots of benches/viewpoints to stop and rest and before you know it you're back where you started.
There are other starting access points to the dyke further north, for the people with more stamina (Just look at google maps) but wherever you get on you'll enjoy the ride.
Plan for about two hours of easy riding with an additional couple of hours exploration time.
It's fun and traffic free enjoy!

Kings Links Golf Course By The Sea

Reviewed By Douglas H - Delta, Canada

I play Kings Links ten times a year. 7 handicap. The Course is a test of understanding true links style play. The greens are medium undulated and very fair from a speed perspective. The prevailing winds will help you on one of your nines but test you on the other. Ties lies around the greens will test your experience to putt or chip. Bring your thinking game if you wish to go low. After your round you will find the service is excellent and the staff pretty easy going.

Centennial Beach

Reviewed By KerriD26 - Ladner, Canada

Centennial Beach is a lovely place to walk on your own, with your family or with your dog! You can use the gravel pathways or walk along the beach, with the tide in or out. There's a great playground for those with younger children, as well as picnic tables, large and clean washrooms and a small café. Lovely spot to hang out.

Tsawwassen Mills

Tsawwassen Mills has a unique mix of premium fashion brands, factory outlets, restaurants and first-to-market retailers. Come visit Bass Pro Shops, Adidas Outlet, Bath & Body Works, Lululemon, Michael Kors, Nike Factory Store and many more. Opened on October 5, 2016 in the Lower Mainland, we wanted to show that we’re more than just a mall. Mills malls are designed around all these feelings that come from a great shopping experience. All our efforts revolve around you. From the stores to the food, from the prices to the entertainment that can deliver for the whole entire family, a trip to a Mills mall is hard to match!

Reviewed By Goodvalyouseeker - Adna

Bass Pro Shop is one of the anchor stores at this huge indoor mall with ample free parking. Floor to ceiling aquarium with live NW fish, displays with NW critters (geese, goats/sheep, bison, wolves, deer, etc...), decorate the expansive camping, hunting, fishing, outdoor clothing emporium. We ate at the restaurant (Fish Bowl) and it was yummy with good service (we had poutine, but the pizzas and mac'n'cheese looked good around us, too)

Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site

Built in 1894 in the historic fishing village of Steveston, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site is one of B.C.'s few historically intact canneries.

Nice place to go all year round. We learnt a lot about the cannery and workers. Wear a warm coat in winter as it's not heated inside. We had a great guide who was very informative about the cannery and the area. Enjoyed looking at...MoreDear CdnWorldTraveller14, Thank you for visiting the Cannery and for posting a review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit and guided tour. Thanks also for bearing the winter cold! We hope to see you again soon.

Garry Point Park

Reviewed By Chris D - New Westminster, Canada

For locals and tourists alike - the views of familiar landmarks are quite different. Walk the dyke trail to the north and see the north shore Mountains and gulf Islands from quite a different perspective. Or, walk east and enjoy the olde fishing village with lots of services. Or sit and people watch.

Tsawwassen Springs Golf

Reviewed By michaelbkolsky - Surprise, Arizona

looked forwarded to playing this "new" course near our summer home. Booked a tee time at a quoted price of $50/ea. When we arrived at golf course we were charged $59/ea., no management available, and have been unable to talk to anyone when I've called. No return calls either.
The golf course is in great shape, but it should be called an "executive" golf course, not a championship layout.
The 1st. 10 holes are narrow and built to fit into a space lacking. Much O.B., no 1st. cut. come prepared with lots of balls.
Ended up playing behind an incourteous 4-some, the last 9 holes, slowed the whole field down, not a Marshal to be seen. the last 8 holes are well done, and it could be a great course if the front was built the same way.
Do not recommend this course at all!
