Isn’t this the cutest little town ever!? Steveston, British Columbia aka Storybrooke is such a charming place! Pictures does not do it justice, but it is such a fun place to visit! It is where a lot of the filming for the disney/abc show Once Upon A Time takes place!
It is about 30 mins outside Vancouver and is a pretty drive to get there. The town has a cool fish canning factory with tours, whale watching and is super cute to walk around! There were lots of neat food places to try that all looked so delicious! We hope to go back sometime and stay at a bed and breakfast in town!
TIPS TO HAVE A FUN TIME IN STORYBROOKE:
Stop by the town post office/visitors center and pick up a map. They have maps that tell you all the sites from the show Once Upon A Time.
Eat some fish and chips! There are tons of places that have them around here and I don’t know which ones are better but we went to Dave’s and got the Halibut and it was super tasty!
Hang out by the dock. There is tons of wildlife there! We saw 8 seals playing around, a swan and lots of cool birds!
Get there before 10am! If you get here before 10 the entire place will be to yourself! Then you can walk around, get pictures before anyone gets there! Then when all the shops open up, go on your walking map tour, and check out all the cute little shops!
Stop for mini donuts at Outpost Mini Donut! Get a basket of 12, they are little and super tasty! Each day they have lots of tasty different flavors! Our fav was the maple. Also the homemade marshmallows for the hot cocoa are fantastic!
If you have time, go whale watching! There are lots of whale watching tour options here.
Side note: There are a ton of cool walls like a giant one with whales, huge Canada flag, lots of brick and fun colored walls that are perfect for photo backdrops.
