For those who love to play outside all day, Chilliwack offers the freedom to do just that.
For those who savour urban comforts and historical curiosities, the city also has some hidden gems. And Chilliwack is only an hour and 15 minutes east of Vancouver via the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 1).
All across this rural Fraser Valley community of 100sq km/259sq mi, visitors can stroll through parks amid wildlife and birds, participate in and watch a variety of sports, shop at unique stores, farms, and artisan workshops, or hit the water for fishing and river rafting. There are also museums, historic sites, and spectacular gardens – Minter Gardens attracts 100,000 visitors annually between April and October as one of Chilliwack's biggest attractions.
