Fraser Valley Cider Company

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter—to me, any season is the season for cider! This spot is literally hidden in the Langley countryside and it's absolutely adorable. You can taste a bunch of different ciders made on site with a cider flight and pick up affordable bottles to take home. The farm setting backdrop is beautiful and the nearby orchards look lovely in Spring! 

Cloverdale Market

You can buy almost anything at the Cloverdale Flea Market but Spring means that it's time for buying plants and flowers!

Walk along the waterfront, check out what's fresh on the dock and have a greasy meal together.

Field House Brewing

Distance From Vancouver: 1 hour

Most craft breweries put a lot of thought, effort and care into their beer but then the food they serve tends to be an afterthought. Not true at Field House Brewing in Abbotsford. This is one of the most fun places to go in the Fraser Valley with your s/o on a road trip! Just be sure to limit your actual beer intake and pick up some beer to take home instead. 

Bowen Island

You can be somewhere totally different in just over an hour when you head out to Bowen Island. Plus, the 20-minute ferry ride is super fun!

Don't forget to visit Branch and Butter right when you step off the ferry to check out their adorable shop and maybe get some cheeky springtime ice cream!

Maplewood Farm

Distance From Vancouver: 20 minutes

Animal-lovers heading out on a road trip should make a stop at Maplewood Farms in North Vancouver. Meet the sheep, cows, goats, ducks and donkeys that call this lovely place home. Plus, this spot is not to far from Deep Cove if you wanted to go hiking, kayaking or just visit Honey's Doughnuts.

Victoria Caledonian Brewery & Distillery

Road trip to the Island? Do a tour at this brewery for a behind-the-scenes look at how whiskey and beer are made. They have a bunch of tour offerings, including a Chocolate and Whiskey tour! This would be a fun way to break up a long drive.

Goodlad is a clothing store, barber shop and coffee shop! You can flat lay your coffee for as long as you like while he tidies himself up and then joins you to split a cookie. This is the perfect way to make running errands together fun!
