The Langley Project – Part 1

The Langley Project

As a born and raised Langleyite, I admit that I have been guilty of overlooking how much there actually is to see and do in Langley. When you live here for your entire life it is all too easy to take for granted the beauty and abundance of this community.  My so called “wake-up call” came when I returned home for the summer after attending school at the University of Calgary. As we finally exited Hwy 1 and entered back into Langley, I exclaimed the first thought that came to my mind: it’s so green! I never appreciated how gorgeous the many shades of green are until I spent 8 months in a land of grey, white and brown.  Inspired by my “green” epiphany, I made the decision to spend my summer experiencing Langley like never before.

Spring Break Boredom Busters in Langley

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism, Heritage & Culture, Itineraries

It’s hard to believe that spring break is just around the corner – especially with the recent snowfall that briefly turned Langley into a winter wonderland. While we are no longer frozen in the Fraser Valley and the chances of getting more fluffy white stuff is slim, there’s still plenty of fun and adventure during the two weeks the kiddies are out of school that doesn’t require a snowsuit.

5 Reasons Why Langley is one of Canada’s Most Romantic Cities

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

Have you heard the big news? Langley has been named the eighth most romantic city in all of Canada!  Ooh-la-la!

Two weeks ago, Amazon.ca revealed the ranking, which was also shared in our local newspaper. This is exciting stuff and such a tremendous honour. If the ranking comes as a shock to you — that’s okay. When you’ve spent most of your life living in the same town, it can be easy to take all its quirks and charms for granted.

A Day to Celebrate Family

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism, Heritage & Culture, Itineraries

Spending time together as a family isn’t always made a priority in many of our busy lives. This coming Family Day, February 10th has been set aside as a special day to remind us of what’s important and provide an opportunity to get together with those we love and partake in a community activity. There are many great things to experience as a group in Langley.  If the skies are blue and fresh air is what you’re craving, our many parks and trails are the perfect place to get some exercise, toss a ball around or take a stroll with your furry family members.  There are also a number of family friendly indoor experiences that can be had such as the indoor playgrounds at the Captain Kids Fun Centre and Go Bananas, lazer tag at Planet Lazer or The Great Escape, or even high-flying trampoline fun at Extreme Air.

Favourite Langley Driving Routes

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Itineraries

With an area of 317.15 km2 the Langley’s cover a large area of Metro Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.  Langley’s grid system of Streets and Avenues run from the Fraser River to the North, 0 Avenue to the South, East to Abbotsford and West to Surrey.  Both the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy 1) and the Fraser Highway (Hwy 1A) run East-West through the community, as does a portion of Highway 10.  There is a saying here that ‘all roads lead to Langley’, and after looking at a map of the area it is easy to see that there are easy access points into Langley from each of the surrounding communities as well as the United States via our own border crossing at Aldergrove-Lynden.

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.

The Bates Motel

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Itineraries

I’m embarrassed to say there are two movies from my youth that I know have forever changed me and influenced so many of the decisions I have made.  Both movies are from the ‘60’s suspense/horror Alfred Hitchcock culture – “The Birds” and “Psycho”.   As a result, I’ve never understood people’s desire to be a bird watcher, let alone own a bird, so note to my future husband, don’t even think about buying me a pair of love birds.  I think that is why I have such an obsession with hats – to protect myself from whatever may be flying or dodging from up above.
