City Spotlight: Surrey


City Spotlight || Surrey || Two Small Men

Whether you’re planning on making the move to Surrey or just stopping by for a visit, you’ll never be short on things to do in this awesome city. Part of greater Metro Vancouver, Surrey is British Columbia’s second largest city with a population of 500,000 residents – and growing!

The poster child for life in beautiful B.C., Surrey boasts the perfect blend of urban convenience and natural beauty. Named after an English county by early British pioneers, this area is surrounded by over 6,000 acres of lush greenery, forested areas, and coastal views. It’s also known for its friendliness, diversity and welcoming attitude – making it the ideal place for people from all cultures and walks of life!

City Spotlight: Surrey 

Here’s just a glimpse of what Surrey has to offer…

Frequent Festivals

Surrey is known for hosting some great annual festivals. Fusion Fest, Cloverdale Rodeo and Party for the Planet are extremely popular (just to name a few) but there’s always something going on! All you need to do is check the city’s events calendar.

Take a Walk

We said Surrey was home to some beautiful scenery and we meant it! Why not get some fresh air by exploring one of the numerous, trails, parks or pathways in the area? Whether you prefer a forested hike in the nearby Redwoods or a beach-side stroll, there are lots of places you can go to get out and get active.

Grab a Bite

If you love to eat (pfft, who doesn’t?!) you’re gonna love Surrey – who prides itself on its flourishing foodie reputation. From fresh seafood and locally-sourced farm fare to ethnic cooking and eateries, this city’s culinary capabilities are sure to impress!

Head to Market

Remember that delicious locally sourced fare we just mentioned? Why not take some home with you by visiting the Surrey Farmer’s Market or any of the area’s nearby farms or fruit stands? Talk about fresh and delicious!

Be Crafty

If you love a good beer, you’re going to love this one. Surrey is home to a multitude of brewpubs, specializing in some seriously tasty craft beers. In fact, Surrey is a major stop along B.C.’s famed “Ale Trail” – a sip-and-see style adventure where trailblazers get to enjoy the great outdoors…and a few pints while they’re at it.

Shop ‘Til You Drop

One thing’s for sure, there’s no shortage of shopping destinations in Surrey. From major shopping meccas and neighbourhood strip malls to family-friendly markets and artisan-style boutiques, you’re sure to have everything you need…and even everything you don’t!

Get Cultured

Perhaps the reason Surrey is home to so many festivals throughout the year is because it’s also home to some fantastically talented people. The city prides itself on its local arts scene, emphasized through the number of galleries, museums, public art displays, studios, theatres and other performing arts venues. If you love the arts, you definitely won’t be disappointed!

Kid-Approved Activities

A local site specifically designated for all things kids, Kid-Approved will give you all the details on family-friendly activities taking place in the area. This includes festivals, indoor and outdoor activities, great restaurants and more!
