A Tourist In Your Own Town!

March 23

I think it is safe to say that we’ll be spending another spring and summer close to home this year, so why not become a tourist in your own town?

I will be highlighting some of my favourite spots in Langley that I hope you enjoy as much as I do!

Wondering what to do on a Friday night? If you are looking for a modern dining experience with some spice, I highly recommend Haven Kitchen & Bar! With their delicious food and amazing cocktails, you will not leave hungry. I would start with one of their signature cocktails (I’m loving the Haven Paloma). And then, order a starter; I highly recommend the Miso Truffle Fries. You can’t really go wrong with any of the entrées, they are all delicious and pretty good portion sizes. Haven has a beautiful, heated patio for you to enjoy as well as indoor seating. Be sure to make reservations in advance as this place is a new Langley hot spot!

I can’t think of a nicer way to spend a Saturday afternoon with family other than in Fort Langley. As you walk down the streets, you get a whimsical vintage feel that makes you feel that you are in a totally different place. You will see many heritage buildings that add to the charm of this area. The Little White House & Co. is among one of my favourite spots to stop by every time I’m in Fort Langley. It’s one of the best places to have brunch or tea with your bestie and then go visit the unique store that is filled with boutique clothes, furniture and more. Don’t forget about Wendel’s Bookstore if you are an avid reader like myself, you could get lost in this place for hours (and they also have a fabulous café!). After walking around all afternoon and visiting the quaint little shops in Fort Langley, it’s time for dinner! My go-to place is Beatniks Bistro, one of the oldest buildings in Fort Langley built in 1933, here I would start with the Roasted Vegetable Dip, and then have the Beef Dip for the entrée. This is a great outing for the whole family, all the while enjoying our gorgeous spring and summer weather.

Speaking of gorgeous weather, why not get outside and explore the beautiful outdoors on a Sunday and experience the nice trails and parks we have here in Langley? I really enjoy Derby Reach Regional Park, it has great walking trails for any experience level and with all of us being stuck at home a lot this year, it’s nice to get out with the family and enjoy a great activity. Another favourite of mine is Krause Berry Farm. I highly recommend visiting on the weekend so you can experience their delicious waffles, they come served nice and warm with berries and whip cream on top, seriously SO good!

There is so much more to do right here in your backyard! I hope you can safely enjoy a nice spring being a tourist in your own town!
