Despite initial skepticism about leaving Vancouver for Abbotsford, Bethenny Frankel, the renowned Real Housewives of New York City star, was pleasantly surprised by the city, gratefully acknowledging the unexpected delight she found there. “I was warned that Abbotsford would be nothing more than farmland, lacking in attractions,” she revealed on TikTok. “Yet, it was among the most captivating places I’ve ever explored.”

Abbotsford – The “City in the Country”

Nestled in the heart of the Fraser Valley in British Columbia, Abbotsford combines the charm of country living with urban amenities. Surrounded by stunning natural beauty, from lush farmlands to picturesque mountains, it’s a haven for outdoor enthusiasts.

Frankel documented her adventures on TikTok during her visit to Vancouver, sharing her gastronomic and retail discoveries.

“I’ve taken a liking to Abbotsford… Does everyone think I’m constantly at high-profile events like the Met Gala? Why wouldn’t I find this lovely area appealing?”

she mused in a post. “Or is it just me?”
