The Birthplace of BC is special for many reasons.  Many find Fort Langley’s historic architecture and quaint village feel appealing for a variety of activities including quiet strolls, treasure hunting, gift shopping, and romantic dining.  Film producers agree and the community is used as a backdrop in numerous TV shows and movies.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not sure where January went.  Were we not all just ringing in 2013, taking down the Christmas tree and excited about a fresh start by making some New Years Resolutions? I read an article a few days ago that said that 80% of New Years Resolutions are broken by January 20th- yikes that seems pretty short lived.   If you find yourself in that boat we thought we could give you some ideas of what you can do in and about Langley to get your resolutions back on track.

A Petite Piece of Paris

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Heritage & Culture, Shopping & Services, Wine & Food

I bet you didn’t know you can visit Paris in Fort Langley, but it’s true. Right here on Glover Road in a beautiful, and some believe haunted heritage home, resides the most wonderful Parisian-inspired boutique and café – Little White House & Co.

The local gem, run by Cheryl Krecsy and her daughter Natasha Krecsy, carries everything from clothing and spa-quality products to lovely home décor items. In every nook and cranny there’s a whimsical treasure sure to delight. It truly is one of the most unique shopping experiences here in the Fraser Valley.

Horses Loose in Willowbrook

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Shopping & Services

A year long public art project in collaboration between the Langley Arts Council and the Langley Horse Federation is now on display at the Willowbrook Shopping Centre. Visit the Horseshoe Trail between January 14 and February 3 to view the many horses which have been transformed into brilliant works of art by local artists. The goal of the project was to “use art to enhance the community’s agricultural heritage and to acknowledge Langley as the Horse Capital of BC”. Willowbrook Shopping Centre is holding a number of events in conjunction with the exhibit including a Horsing Around Kids Party on January 19, Meet the Artists Days on January 26 and February 2, as well as offering a contest with the chance to win a $1,000+ Horsing Around Langley activity package including horse riding lessons, dining, entertainment, shopping, and more.

The Origin of ‘Brunch’ & Where You Can Get it in Langley

Categories: Itineraries, Wine & Food

According to a quick search on Wikipedia, the term ‘brunch’ was probably coined in Britain in 1835 in an article by Guy Beringer. I like what he had to say, and agree with his thoughts regarding this late-morning meal.

Restaurant Spotlight: Planet Java Cafe

Keeping to the theme of our recent posts, if you have a sentimental longing for the ways of the past, a little gem found in our historic village of Fort Langley is sure to quench your nostalgic thirst. Located on Glover Road in the heart of the charming ‘Birthplace of BC’, Cafe Planet Java pays homage to a time of classic rock and roll. Decked out in Elvis memorabilia, Marilyn Monroe’s smile lights up the walls, and their famous milkshakes are just some of the draws for visitors and locals alike.
