It's a good bet that in parts of Langley, British Columbia's birthplace, horses might just outnumber people. Canada's self-proclaimed horse capital is also home to an aviation museum, winery, and lots of history. From Vancouver, it's less than an hour's drive east along Highway 1. It’s also a great place to rent a Recreation Vehicle (RV) to start your exploration of British Columbia and further on to the Canadian Rockies.
The charming, river-front Fort Langley, named for the nearby Fort Langley National Historic Site of Canada, provides lots to browse through along the centre’s tree-lined streets, whether you're looking for the perfect antique or an original work of art. Langley City is the revitalised business district and pedestrian oriented streets make shopping a pleasure. Langley is also one of the communities that participate in Circle Farm Tour, a self-guided journey through the farm-gate markets, wineries and agri-tourism experiences
The Campbell Valley Regional Park is home to a restored school house and farmstead, and is also one of several that offer horse riding trails within their boundaries, along with walking trails and the opportunity to explore rivers and creeks.
