Richmond’s rich culture is a product of its coastal geography and multiethnic make-up. Visit Steveston, one of Richmond's iconic fishing villages that's also home to two National Historic Sites, to take in the city's long-standing marine history while enjoying stunning seaside vistas. Nature lovers can get out onto the water to spy on orcas or venture inland to watch the dozens of migratory bird species that touch down in town from winter to spring.
Popular heritage sites with no admission fee include the International Buddhist Temple, Richmond Museum, and Richmond Art Museum, offering visitors a great way to explore local culture on a shoestring budget. Known for its Chinese influences, Richmond offers some of the most authentic Chinese food found on this side of the Pacific in the Golden Village or along the Dumpling Trail. The Richmond Night Market also serves up a mouth-watering selection of street food hailing from all corners of the Asian continent.
