Fans can pick up a Once Upon a Time walking map at the Tourism Richmond Visitor Centre on Moncton Street (where much of the filming takes place) to take their own self-guided tour of Steveston. It's fun to walk in the footsteps of the show's stars, such as Robert Carlyle (Rumplestiltskin), Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan), and Lana Parrilla (Regina Mills)!
Storybrooke signage is no longer up, but many of the buildings seen on the show are still easy to recognize. Here are a few of the transformations to be on the lookout for:
- The Steveston Post Office & Visitor Centre becomes the Storybrooke Post Office
- The Cannery Café Seafood House becomes Granny’s Diner
- The Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site becomes the Storybrooke Cannery
- Pajo’s Fish & Chips becomes Storybrooke Fish & Chips
- Nikaido becomes Standard Clocks
Pick up your walking map from the Visitor Centre to learn more about the roles local businesses play on the show!
