MAPLE LEOPARD: Once Upon a Time in Stevetson B.C.

Once Upon a Time in Stevetson B.C.

Good Morning!

I hope the weekend was fantastic for you!  I made another short trip back to my home town again in Canada. This time I visited a little village by the sea I had never seen before.  My daughter wanted to find the setting for the ABC series "Once Upon A Time."  It was fun to see the buildings used in the show and tour the town.

Stevetson is located 30 minutes  south of Vancouver BC.  It is on the west coast of Richmond, and is where the mighty Fraser River and the Pacific Ocean converge. This charming town has a very relaxing aura about it, the locals are very friendly, and it's perfect for a weekend get away.

What are your favorite weekend spots to visit in summer? Sometimes if a vacation is not possible, getting away for the weekend does the trick!

Have a great week!

  8. I really enjoyed browsing through all of your lovely photos of your visit to Stevetson, B.C. What a beautiful, serene locale. Whenever I need a quick weekend roadtrip on a Saturday or Sunday here in California, it's usually to Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel, San Francisco or Lake Tahoe. Anywhere with water and a gorgeous beach!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind comments! I LOOOOVE CA! I have been to all those places you mentioned, except Lake Tahoe. I went to college in Stockton, so I made week end trips to all those fab spots! I agree the beach is all you need! I hope you can make it north some day, so many scenic places in WA and in BC!
