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!

Resolve to Make like a Tourist – In your own Town!

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

Starting tomorrow you’ll have to start remembering to date things 2015 instead of 2014. With a new year, comes new resolutions, new goals, and new schedules. If you’re anything like me, you probably want to set some new year’s resolutions for yourself, but aren’t quite sure where to start. In my experience, setting big grandiose resolutions are great, but the smaller, more realistic ones tend to be much easier to keep and are often much more satisfying in the end.

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.

Winter in Langley

Category: Activities & Recreation

Winter is one of those magical times in the lower mainland; it appears and retreats ever so quickly, that we only get a snip-it of what most of the country experiences for months on end. When winter does decide to show its face in Langley, residents embrace the beauty it produces and furiously capture the monochrome landscape as much as possible. In my opinion, there are few things better than snowy, winter evening walks, sledding and snowman making and warming up by the fireplace with a hot cocoa. Below are some #langleyfresh photo submissions that depict the gorgeous winter snowfall from the past few days.

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.

Birds of Langley

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism
It seems that Langley residents sure love their feathered friends! We’ve received many #langleyfresh photo submissions via Instagram and Facebook of our winged neighbors.  Campbell Valley Regional Park looks like the best place to catch a glimpse of the Chestnut-backed Chickadee. Many of you have even been lucky enough to tempt these tiny, acrobatic birds to eat out of the palm of your hands, and it’s an incredible sight to see.

My Experiences as a Visitor Counsellor

Category: Uncategorised

It’s that time of the year again where kids are getting ready to start school in September and summer is drawing to an end. We hold dear our summer memories and embrace the change into fall and a new season. This past summer I was lucky enough to work as a Visitor Counsellor at the Langley Visitor Centre. Throughout the past few months I had the opportunity to meet and greet local and international visitors to Langley and share with them all the amazing things that our community has to offer. It is always fascinating to meet visitors traveling to my home town and getting their perspective on Langley and British Columbia as a whole. They would always tell me how beautiful it is here and how lucky we are to live in the Lower Mainland. The visitors are always friendly and all have such great stories to share about where they come from. One of the benefits of working in the Visitor Centre is it kept me up to date on all the fun events happening in Langley over the summer. Some of these events I attended to represent Tourism Langley and the community, which was a lot of fun.
