Just a 40-minute drive east of downtown Vancouver, Langley (pop 130,000) attracts visitors with a blend of offerings.
Visit historic and heritage sites, engaging museums, follow a Circle Farm Tour that visits local farms and nurseries, take wine tours, go horseback riding, and enjoy boutique and big-box shopping.
Fort Langley, nestled next to the Fraser River, gave the city of Langley its first claim to fame in the mid-19th century as the "Birthplace of British Columbia." To discover how today's province started out as a British Crown Colony more than 150 years ago, explore this small historic village on the south bank of the Fraser River.
Today, Langley now delivers the kind of accommodations, dining, and other amenities that visitors expect in the 21st century. Whether it's hiking through local parks, family-friendly festivals, or glitzy movie theatre and casino experiences, it's all here in this Fraser Valley community.
