Take a romantic stroll along the Fort to Fort trail
Langley has some great trails to discover. What’s better than taking a stroll on the Fort to Fort trail? You get beautiful views of Mount Baker on a clear day, you feel surrounded by nature and forest on the Houston trail but you also get to walk along the Fraser River! You can bike, walk or run on this trail. Maybe take your sweetheart and your dog along with you. Don’t forget to stop by the site of the very first fort in Langley before it was relocated to its current site!
Spoil your sweetheart in Downtown Langley
Haven’t gotten your date a gift? Don’t worry, instead take them for a shopping trip in Downtown Langley! Choose from Krazy Bob’s Music Emporium for a trip down memory lane, the Passionate Home for your interior needs or Spa Pure for relaxation. Also check out some great restaurants like Choo Choo’s, NY Grill & Bistro or Kostas Greek Restaurant. Make sure to stop into Frostings Cupcakery for a quick cupcake or treat your date to Afternoon Tea!
Langley has 6 great wineries to choose from. Why not plan a romantic wine tasting for your loved one. The Campbell Valley Wine Route is made up of 4 wineries for your tasting pleasure.

History or Aviation Buffs
Is your sweetheart a history buff or one who enjoys the thrill of aviation? Fort Langley Historic Site gives you a chance to step back into a Fur Trading fort.
