August Events in Langley, B.C.

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

It seems like just yesterday we were getting into the summer swing of things and now all of a sudden the last full month of summer is upon us. There has already been some great events this summer in Langley but don’t put away your sandals and sunscreen just yet! We still have a full month of events to go that will keep you busy throughout the rest of summer, so you can keep your mind off the fast approaching autumn season (unless you’re looking forward to the fall of course). Brigade days kicked off the month in Fort Langley with a bang, literally, so let’s keep this month rolling with tons more great events!

5 things to do in South Langley

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

As cities grow and communities change it is sometimes difficult to hold on to the roots of how it all came to be. Many towns and cities merely bare the names of their former selves as they have grown and become changed with time. Langley has always been a farming and pioneering community, that is its roots. Now, Langley is growing fast and is as diverse as ever, which is one of its most positive features. But somehow amongst all the growth and change many of Langley’s communities have still managed to save glimpses of the past that are so important to hold on to. One of these such places is South Langley, the sense of community and agricultural roots is strong in this area and with that comes some pretty interesting things to do while touring this locale. Here are 5 things that you need to check out if you find yourself south of Fraser Highway.

Ivan the Info Van

Category: Uncategorised

Hello!

I would like to formally introduce myself as Tourism Langley’s Info-To-Go Van! I joined the team back in November and made my first official debut at the Aldergrove Christmas Light up Parade. I couldn’t have been more proud as my new owners dressed me up in lights to show off my amazing wrap. You may have also seen me out and about around Langley, as I am just starting to learn the ropes.

It’s been a slice, Langley!

Category: Uncategorised

I’ve been asked to write something to sum up my experience here at Tourism Langley in the summer role of Community Services Coordinator. I’m both happy to have the chance to share my experience with the Langley Explorer readers, and truly sad that my time with Tourism Langley has come to an end. While I am a full-time university student at the University of Calgary, I (unlike Britney) am not pursuing studies in Tourism. I was born and raised in Langley, and my husband, two cats, and our home all stay in Langley while I attend school in Calgary. In late April I began searching for a summer job here at home. I didn’t really have any idea what I wanted to do. I have a lot of customer service and sales experience so I decided to play to my strengths and began searching for jobs that would best utilize those skills. I found the posting for Tourism Langley and thought “Hey, that sounds cool!” and sent my resume off to Christina. When I was offered an interview I was excited. After my first interview I was ecstatic. After my second interview I was elated. And then I had to wait for over a day in limbo to hear if I would get the position or not. Lo and behold, I got the position and here I am.

A New Summer Adventure

Category: Uncategorised

I caught the travel bug at a young age. In my teen years I went to visit family friends in Germany, and ever since I’ve had a passion for travel and the tourism industry. I decided after high school to pursue this passion and I enrolled at Thompson Rivers University in their Bachelor of Tourism Management Degree program. I have managed to squeeze in small trips between semesters or during breaks, my most recent trip being a few months in SE Asia. However, as much as I love hopping on a plane and arriving somewhere completely new and different, there is something wonderful about being a tourist in your own backyard. This summer I have that opportunity.

Cheeky Little Signs of Spring

Categories: Agritourism, Uncategorised, Wine & Food

A sure sign of spring is the rhubarb making its move in the garden – spreading out and staking its claim hoping you won’t notice how much territory it has actually taken over.  If you leave it alone to do its thing, you will wake up one morning with it next to you in bed…give it an inch, it takes a mile.  This cheeky little plant is actually a vegetable – not a fruit as most people think.  Its leaves are highly toxic and they shouldn’t be consumed by people or animals.  The only edible part of the plant is actually the stalk and has a bonus; it is a great source of vitamin c and iron.
