Picking your perfect neighbourhood? You’re going to want to look at Langley. In the spring of 2016, rumours were finally confirmed. The Vancouver Giants would be moving from The Pacific Coliseum to the Langley Events Centre. They’re just the latest in a wave of people realizing that Langley is the new place to be: it’s affordable, it’s green, there’s space to breathe and it’s becoming home to some of the Lower Mainland’s most exciting new restaurants, pubs, retail and activities. Langley has always been good for outdoor sports, horseback riding and visiting wineries, but it’s now home to craft beer, hot yoga and trendy coffee bars as well as WHL hockey games.
To build a more inclusive and sustainable city, move to the centre of Langley and you’re now walking distance to an ever-more diverse array of urban amenities. Transit is convenient, highways will take you anywhere in Metro Vancouver in a short drive.
Perhaps meet friends for a latté at Mattu’s Coffee & Tea House or share some tempura at Noma Sushi. When you want to indulge, check out the mani-pedis at Sassy Nail Salon & Spa, and when you feel like working out Gold’s Gym and Bikram Yoga are right nearby. Of course, you could also catch the latest release at the Colossus Movie Theatres (or support your hometown WHL team at the Langley Events Centre) followed by drinks at the pub.
Langley is attracting Millennials looking for an urban lifestyle
This city has a lot to offer. We’ve all got our favourite spots – but Langley is that smart buy. It’s for those in the know, who know a good deal and who have the vision to see this is the next big thing. That’s why the area is already full of so many amazing amenities.
A great urban setting, living in Langley you’re still close to parks, trails, and outdoor green spaces. It’s at that perfect point where it offers everything, but hasn’t been overrun. You have local, independent flavour. You have businesses catering to your needs. You have people living life, and enjoying the best of it all.
