Abbotsford's self-proclaimed nickname, "City in a Country," says it all—urban amenities that include sophisticated dining, shopping and arts venues set in a landscape of working farms, art studios and refurbished historic communities.

Coupled with its temperate climate, Abbotsford is a year-round destination packed with activities for the entire family, including hiking, mountain biking, fishing and golf. With several provincial parks, rivers and lakes in and around Abbotsford, there are many outdoor activities to experience.
 
The Circle Farm Tour is one of the best ways to explore the Abbotsford countryside as it weaves along country roads to a myriad of farms selling everything from apples and preserves to gourmet ice cream. Many offer picnic parks, playgrounds and petting barns. 
Another entertainment feature is Castle Fun Park. This year-round family play center includes 18-hole outdoor and two indoor mini-golf courses, baseball batting cages, a Go-Kart track and over 130 video and skill games.
 
In Abbotsford’s historic downtown you’ll discover turn-of-the-century buildings that house specialty boutiques, quaint tea shops and stores filled with local produce, English-style candy and gifts, and with the popularity of eat-local, Abbotsford's farm-to-fork tourism is growing in leaps and bounds. Not only are farms producing quality produce, but local wineries are gaining recognition for excellent wines. Lotusland Vineyards and Mt. Lehman Winery are two wineries in Abbotsford that are crafting local vintages.
 
Abbotsford is situated in the heart of the agricultural Fraser Valley, the valley that takes its name from the mighty Fraser river that winds its way from northern BC all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Just across the river on a southern slope overlooking the lush Fraser River Valley and the Fraser River is the community of Mission, with its unique heritage sites.
 
Abbotsford is less than an hour drive east of the city of Vancouver, situated on the Pacific Ocean with its snow-capped mountain backdrop. Abbotsford is also less than an hour from Harrison Hot Springs, home of the world-famous natural hot springs and the annual world-renowned sand castle competition.
