The Greater Vancouver Area has a lot to offer to families this summer. We are very lucky to be living in Vancouver where almost every city is busy organizing great events for families. We even have a hard time putting all these activities on our family schedule. There’s nothing we would want to miss!!
The city of Langley is quite special to us. Visiting its downtown core brings us back down memory lane. Downtown Langley is home to over 500 unique shops, services and restaurants. This pedestrian-oriented shopping area features free parking, and includes historic Innes Corners, trendy McBurney Plaza. My wife enjoys a leisurely stroll through this beautiful area, you’ll find handmade giftware, jewellery, fine art, fabulous clothing and footwear, unique housewares, hand crafted furniture, antiques and a variety of other fabulous items that you won’t find anywhere else. Perhaps it’s time to take the whole family back to Downtown Langley and we are just so excited for all the events they have this summer!
This Summer, McBurney Plaza is hosting fun and educational summer events for kids. See details below.
