Bordered by Metro Vancouver to the west, and the Okanagan to the east, the Fraser Valley region offers a unique combination of country living and city style. Enjoy the quiet and peaceful surroundings of the Fraser Valley while being close enough to the bustling Vancouver city centre. Besides having one of the mildest climates in Canada, an increasing number of urban dwellers are moving to the Fraser Valley for their careers and in search of better housing affordability in a fast-growing and diverse community.
The region's backdrop is a natural landscape with beautiful mountains, lakes and hiking trails – perfect for those that enjoy the great outdoors. If outdoor recreation doesn't pique your interest, the Fraser Valley is also home to many boutique shops, bakeries, locally-owned restaurants and a vibrant arts scene. Many artists and artisans open their studios to the public on the weekends, creating a dynamic and artistic community. Along with significant development in housing and facilities, there has been an increase in opportunities for arts, culture and recreation.
The country side of Langley and Chilliwack is an agricultural hub where you can enjoy unique opportunities like Circle Farm tours, berry or orchard picking in the summer and the annual Abbotsford Tulip festival. There's more information about things to do in the Fraser Valley on the Tourism BC website.
