Summer is for staycations—because when there’s so much to do in your own backyard; why go anywhere else?
Langley is an idyllic getaway no matter where you are in Metro Vancouver; with a plethora of fun things to do and exciting places to stay.
Things To Do in Langley
Eat all the ribs
If you like ribs, you do not want to miss out on this epic event. RibFest Langley is happening August 16-18th and it’s one of the city’s most delicious festivals. The event features world renowned ribbers and other food vendors (you definitely wont leave here hungry). Smoke & Bones BBQ, Boss Hogs and Prairie Smoke are just some of the joints you can try. And there will be plenty of vegetarian options as well—so there’s something for everyone.
Nothing says Summer like sipping on some wine and digging into charcuterie on a sprawling patio. That’s where Backyard Vineyards comes in. Explore the scenic vineyards, sample a vast array of reds and whites and just kick back and relax on their patio while soaking up the sunshine. Langley is a hot spot for wineries, with lots of amazing spots to drink up the best B.C. has to offer. Chaberton Estate and Blackwood Lane are just a couple other options in Langley you should add to your bucket list.
Go berry picking
For a day well-spent, head to one of Langley’s serene farms. Krause Berry Farms features U-pick berry fields, a bakery and an estate winery. Plus, they have a massive market full of fresh and local goods to stock up on. If you’re going here—make sure to save room for their signature pies (or take one home). Driediger Farms Market is another good option—and the perfect destination to pick some of the province’s best strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and red currants. Make sure to set aside an entire afternoon for this spot though; as you’ll want to also peruse their shop filled with local goodies.
Watch a movie under the stars
It’s easily the perfect date night or just a fun activity out with friends. Spend an evening under the stars watching a movie and eating your favourite snacks at the classic Twilight Drive-In. It’s a must during the Summer months so make sure to check it out at least once while you still can.
Hit the trails at Campbell Valley Regional Park
Whether you’re looking to break a sweat or go forest bathing—this serene park has lots of trails to explore. The sprawling park is located amongst farm land and has a vast trail network for walking, biking and horseback riding.
Matinee movie in the Bay
For another fun activity this Summer—enjoy a movie while you swim in Breaker Bay, at the Otter Co-op Outdoor Experience. Finding Nemo is screening on August 25th and Finding Dory will be shown on September 8th. Nothing beats a leisurely swim while watching a cartoon flick.
Grab a coffee & bite at Wendel’s
The iconic Wendel’s in Fort Langley is one part book shop and one part eatery. It’s also the perfect spot to stop for a coffee and quick bite while out exploring the historic little village. Sit on the patio for the ultimate people-watching spot.
Places To Stay
