Abbotsford Things to Do

  • Learn About Milk Production!

    I'd been thinking for a while about taking my 3 year old to tour the EcoDairy in Abbotsford (which is in partnership with Science World), but had forgot about it (though we drive by quite often). I finally saw admission for two pop up on Groupon and decided it would be a great way for the two of us to spend an afternoon. We popped in, in early...

  • Visit the Dairy

    Though we are local to the area, I would definitely recommend visiting Birchwood Dairy, especially if you are interested in Agri-tourism. The Dairy is located in a beautiful quiet spot in the valley with fabulous views of the surrounding mountains. For the little one's they have swings and a slide, as well as tractors they can climb on and a...

  • Stop by the Farm

    We'd driven by Maan Farms a few times going other places, but never had the chance to stop in. We finally made our first trip in June of 2014 to go strawberry picking as a family. It was a cool and rainy when we arrived so the fields were pretty empty and we had quite a few rows to ourselves to find those glorious yummy berries. We picked over...

  • Walk the Matsqui Trail

    When we moved out to the Valley, I was on the hunt for some great things to do with our almost 2 year old daughter that wouldn't cost us anything. The Matsquai trail was pretty close to our house, so on a beautiful day in June I decided to check it out with her. It's the perfect walk to do with young ones. The raised path gives them a clear...

  • #1 Bakery in the Area

    This place embodies everything that a great business should be. The quality of their food is exceptional and the customer service is fantastic! The bakery is cozy and welcoming and every time I visit there are more people enjoying themselves here. It's in a great little neighbourhood for shopping, so the perfect place to stop for a drink or a bite...

  • Great for Lunch or a Treat

    Tracycakes used to have a number of cafe's around the Greater Vancouver Area, but they are now down to two (plus a Bakery, which is also in Abbotsford and a great place to grab a loaf of bread or a yummy cookie or cake!), and thankfully this one is only one town away from our home! We've been by a variety of Tracycakes locations over time for...

  • home-made country goodness

    The little kitchen produces some wonderful home-made soups, quiche, desserts, fresh coffee and 60 different teas.The cafe is behind the store in this old farm house, built in 1930, and there are about six tables. But the menu is large enough to give you plenty of choice.There is also a new restaurant in downtown Abbotsford - Little Farmhouse in the...


Abbotsford Off The Beaten Path

  • Eagle Mountain Trail

    Eagle Mountain trail is hidden between the big houses up on Eagle Mountain, and the housing estates around Old Yale Road. You have to look to find it. Go up Eagle Mountain Road - you'll find a break in the fence and the trail. It is hilly though. Be prepared to dip and climb.

  • Yarrow, B.C.

    Yarrow is a small farming community just east of Abbotsford. From the highway (1) you'd never guess that a village exists south east of Sumas. Yarrow was settled by Mennonites who came from Russia to the prairies, to Agassiz then Yarrow in the early 1930's. The plaque in Yarrow says it was established in 1928. As you drive through you could easily...

  • Abbotsford Airshow

    Abbotsford Airshow takes place at August every year on the grounds of the Abbotsford Airport which is about a one hours drive east of Vancouver.
