The riverside harbour is among the classiest in the Lower Mainland.
About 20 kilometres east of Vancouver is British Columbia's oldest incorporated city, New Westminster. The city was formerly the province's fishing and business hub and is blessed with one of the tidiest wharfs in the Lower Mainland, the Westminster Quay.
The city's main attraction houses a hotel and several residential and office spaces. But the two-kilometre (1.2 mile) harbour is best known for its small but dainty two-level public market that's home to 30 retail stores.
There's the SS Samson V Maritime Museum, Russian Foxtrot U-521 Submarine Tour, Royal City Star Riverboat Casino and the nearby Antique Alley. The Westminster Quay Public Market plays host to a number of festivals and special events like the Chinese New Year, Chilli Cook-off and Oktoberfest.
