Discover Beauty At BLOOM – The Abbotsford Tulip Festival

March 20th, 2017 by Corey A. Edwards

BLOOM - The Abbotsford Tulip Festival 2017Come revel in nature’s endless beauty at BLOOM – The Abbotsford Tulip Festival, April 10th to May 7th, 2017, dawn to dusk, in Abbotsford, BC.

If wandering a sea of vibrant tulips before a backdrop of mountains sounds like heaven to you, then you do not want to miss the Abbotsford Tulip Festival. This annual festival celebrates the coming of spring with 10-acres of tulip fields planted with 35 varieties of tulips in all the hues of the rainbow.

They say seeing is believing but the Abbotsford Tulip Festival presents such an incredibly surreal vista you may doubt your eyes! The fields truly do seem to go on forever; a veritable sea of color in a panorama of breathtaking views.

While this incredible, seasonal vision is more than enough reason to visit the area, the Abbotsford Tulip Festival offers much more than just a unique and lovely view. There are more than enough other activities to make a day of the event.

The festival will have a flower market selling bouquets of freshly cut tulips as well a special “u-pick” area. Wander through the “u-pick” garden and create your own bouquet. Looking for something more substantial than a bouquet? You can also order bulbs, delivered in fall, for your own spring garden!

Visit Fort Langley, a National Historic Site

September 12th, 2014 by sweetdreams

Fort LangleyFor a real taste of history we encourage visitors to head over to the Fort Langley National Historic Site.  Fort Langley, located less than a half hour from the inn,  is a former trading post of the Hudson’s Bay Company.  It is commonly referred to as “the birthplace of British Columbia” and is designated as a National Historic Site of Canada. Fort Langley is the exact location where, a century and a half ago the Hudson’s Bay Company established a small post to trade with the First Nations of the West Coast. The trading continued and the fort grew, leading to the creation of the colony of British Columbia.

Exploring this 1800s fur trade post is very exciting, and is like stepping back in time.  It’s truly amazing to see what it was like to be there in the 1800s. Visit with costumed interpreters, watch blacksmithing & barrel-making demonstrations explore.  See where First Nations people traded salmon, furs and Cranberries for Hudson’s Bay Company goods, and see where British Columbia was proclaimed a colony. Enjoy cultural exhibits, a gift shop, and enjoy lunch (summer months only) at the Full Barrel Café. For more information visit their website.

After a day of exploring life in the 1800s, step into modern luxury with stay at Sweet Dreams Luxury Inn, ideal Fort Langley lodging.
