Endless Farm Fresh Choices

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

June is here, the sun in shining (okay well it was), markets are open, and our local berries are ripe for the picking! This means that Langley’s Circle Farm Tour is in full swing! All stops on the 2013 tour are now open for business which means that you can finally head out to the berry farms and pick that juicy ripe fruit directly from the fields. Strawberries have arrived, and it’s only time before the rest of our favourite local berries can be picked up, farm fresh.

My Perfect Weekend

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

The weather this past weekend could not have been more co-operative for writing about a Perfect Weekend.  Now of course one person’s perfect weekend may not be another’s but when I travel I love to read about personal experiences, especially from a local’s perspective.  As I have mentioned on this blog before, I was born and raised in Langley. I have watched it change and grow, and this year seemed like an appropriate time to reflect a bit on my home town.  I have a birthday coming up that may or may not start with a 4 and end with an 0.  So with that I thought I would share with you what my perfect weekend in Langley would include and maybe take a little trip or two down memory lane while we are at it.

Celebrating our Mothers

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

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and just in case you haven’t already, mark your calendar for the second Sunday in May – this year, May 12th.   Now, not everyone is a Mother but the day is also a day to celebrate and honor motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers.  Some of us may have gained a new Mom through marriage or have a motherly, nurturing person that influences our lives.  I am a Mom to two great kids that make my life more interesting and fun than I could have ever imagined.  I have also gained four “part time” sons as a billet family for the Langley Rivermen.  I am also fortunate to have a Mom and Mom in law that are there to help whenever I need it.

Campbell Valley Regional Park

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Heritage & Culture

There is a lot that’s special about our natural gem, the Campbell Valley Regional Park in South Langley.  Locals know that its extensive network of trails aren’t the only reason to visit the park on a regular basis.  In addition to its 29 km’s of hiking trails, 1 km of biking trails, and 14 km’s of horseback riding trails, there are many other reasons why Campbell Valley is the perfect place to spend a sunny day stretching your legs.

A Fort Langley Photo Walk

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.

New Year’s Resolutions

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.

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.
