Food Scene

Local restaurant in Garrison Village that's a bit more upscale, but still pretty chill. Great for wine / martini's / caesars / finer food.

Local micro-brew that had the 'Best Stout in Canada' award a few years ago. Great spot to enjoy a sample flight or to fill your growler.

Local flavour, great coffee, great patio. Don't go to a franchise restaurant while you're in the Wack... go somewhere unique with some personality.

Probably the most unassuming and most affordable restaurant in the Fraser Valley. Great for both lunch and dinner. Close to where I work and I sometimes eat there 2-3 times a week. 100% worth the visit.

Bucket list hike for many in the Fraser Valley or Lower Mainland. Need a 4x4 to access - the drive to the parking lot is quite long and rough. The hike is relatively steep and takes 2-3 hours round trip. View is worth it!

Great little caving system that can be experienced by (almost) anyone. Probably best to have a guide with you to find it and find your way through (you can ask your host :)

Relatively easy hike that gets you up above Cultus Lake for a view of the whole area. Good for families - even those with small children.

Incredible views of the Chilliwack River Valley and Fraser Valley all packed in a short (1.5-ish hr) hike that is steep, but well worth it. Easy to access with a Honda Civic... so no 4x4 needed.

The trailhead for the Chilliwack River Valley's jewel of a hike - Lindeman Lake. Beautiful turquoise water is the payoff after a short (1hr) hike. Easy access but can be pretty busy - I'd suggest to go early or on a weekday.

Amazing 'backcountry' lake that is a relatively short drive (20ish minutes) from our place. Boat launch for small horsepower / non-motorized boats. A huge lake that experiences strong winds in the early afternoon (use your wits when paddling) and has a strong current outflow where it empties into the Chilliwack River (SW side). Totally worth the trip.

You'll have to do some research to find the trailhead. Worth the effort!

Chilliwack wouldn't be Chilliwack without The Bookman. A truly great place to go and get yourself lost for a few hours. Say hello to the store cat while you're there. Right around the corner from Harvest and Chaos & Solace. Just down the street from Classic Sound.
