Hello everyone! My name is Connor Burge and I am the new Visitor Services Counsellor here at Tourism Langley. Growing up in Langley myself, I know what this area has to offer and I am thrilled to be able to share that with everyone else. From the beautiful vistas of Campbell Valley Regional Park, to the noisy fans out supporting our local teams at the Langley Events Centre, there is something for everyone here in Langley and that’s why I love it so much.
I am back for the summer from my studies in commerce at Uvic and boy am I excited to get things going. I definitely missed Langley a lot while I was gone and couldn’t wait to get back and sit down for some great food at my favorite local restaurants. Speaking of food, did you know that Trading Post Brewery just opened up their new Taphouse and Eatery in Fort Langley? It’s just another excuse to visit beautiful Fort Langley, which already has so much to offer. Also, while you’re there, why not check out the Fort to Fort Trail? Trail season is heating up and I know I will be spending my weekends walking the Fort to Fort and exploring both the Campbell Valley and Aldergrove Regional Parks. That’s not the only way to get out and enjoy the sun this summer however.
Tourism Langley is ramping up for tons of outdoor events and festivities these next few months so be sure to stay up to date by checking out our events page. From the Langley Community Farmers Market to Canada Day, come stop by and chat with us at our Ask Langley booth where we will be there offering our full range of brochures and guides which are key to discovering many of the Fraser Valley’s hidden gems. Keep the questions coming too! I still find out new things about the Langley’s everyday and it feels great to help others do so as well. If you miss us at our booth, Ask Langley is our great online resource where you can ask us questions directly and we will respond via your preferred method of contact (usually within 24 hours!).
I’m really looking forward to being out in the community as much as possible this summer and can’t wait to promote the beautiful Fraser Valley as I know the opportunities for exploration are just as diverse as the communities themselves.
Until Next Time!
Connor Burge| Visitor Services Counsellor
