Victoria offers a breathtaking inner harbour, elegant dining, jazz spots, shops and world class art galleries for visitors to enjoy. It has a temperate climate with mild, damp winters and relatively dry and mild summers giving it the reputation as the “City of Gardens” (displaying flowers and many plant species including palms, eucalyptus and certain varieties of banana rarely found elsewhere in Canada).
Hope is situated at the base of the flourishing Cascade Mountains and on the sweeping curve of the great Fraser River and Coquihalla Rivers. Hope is just 130 km and about 1 hour and a half away from the Pacific Border RV Park. The climate here is temperate with comfortable and relatively dry summers and mild and wet winters. This pretty town also has a museum, church, art gallery, and wooden sculptures (from which it became known as the “Chainsaw Carving Capital”) for one’s cultural satisfaction. Spirit Cave Trails, Fraser Canyon and Manning Park offer majestic fields where you can enjoy nature viewing, biking, hiking, bird watching, river rafting, fishing and boating.
Chilliwack, the seat of Fraser Valley Regional District, is located at upper Fraser Valley, 100 km east of the City of Vancouver and is just 80.3 km (1 hour) away from the Pacific Border RV Park. Its mild climate, limited snow and rain provide excellent growing conditions for agricultural products. The city is nestled between mountains (Mount Cheam and Slesse Mountain) and has a lot of parks...Cultus Lake and Chilliwack Lake Provincial Parks...where one can enjoy hiking, biking, fishing and golf. The Chilliwack Museum, Chilliwack Library and Chilliwack Arts Centre offer a quiet and serene time for cultural and art appreciation.
Abbotsford, the 5th largest municipality in British Columbia and the 37th largest in Canada, lies in the heart of the Fraser Valley. It is sheltered and enjoys the picturesque view of Mt. Baker, 100 kilometres from the city. Abbotsford is only 42 minutes travelling time from Pacific Border RV Park. Abbotsford International Airport serves as a reliever airport to Vancouver International Airport. This city is considered as the third most ethnically diverse in Canada composed of Caucasians, South Asians and Aboriginals. It is also home to the Valley Royals Track & Field Club and Abbotsford Pilots of the Pacific International Junior Hockey League (Junior B level).
Its name is derived from the luxurious growth of alder trees. Aldergrove sits on a hill with Langley in a valley to the west (about 35 feet above sea level). It is 37 miles (59 km) east of Vancouver, extends 15 km north to the Fraser River, 5 km south to the United States (Washington) border, and is only 31 minutes from Pacific Border RV Park. Hiking, horseback riding trails, picnicking, playing fields, and swimming in the lake can be enjoyed at the Aldergrove Lake Regional Park. Greater Vancouver Zoological Centre is also one spot where you could check out wild animals like lions, tigers, bears, rhinos, giraffes and more. Another beautiful sight in Aldergrove is the hip-deep pools of crimson cranberries. It's also a great place for balloon tours because of its temperate weather.
Only 21 minutes (18.5 kilometres) away from Pacific Border RV Park, Langley is to be found at the center of the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, Canada, and 50 kilometres (30 miles) from the mouth of the Fraser River. It is considered to be the official birthplace of British Columbia. Langley occupies 40 percent of the total agricultural land in the Fraser Valley which enables it to accommodate the largest number of horse farms, rabbit farms, sheep, and almost half of the mushroom farms in the province. It is comprised of historical sites and is home to Canadian Museum of Flight and Transportation; the DC-3 Dakota plane used in the 1950s by the Queen Charlotte Airlines, and a Canadair CF-104 Starfighter, referred to as the Missile with a man in it (courtesy of its maximum speed of mach 2 - twice the speed of sound) are restored and on display.
Fort Langley can be found on the southern shore of the Fraser River, just north of the Trans-Canada Highway 1, 30 miles (48 km) east of Vancouver and only 27 minutes travel from Pacific Border RV Park. Known for its historic character, it nestles the Langley Centennial Museum and Agricultural Museum, as well as the Fort Langley National Historic Site framed with mountain views. Fort-to-Fort Trail offers the views of the Bedford Channel of the Fraser River with the abundance of native wildflowers and lush vegetation. 100% fruit wines can be tasted at the Old-fashioned Saloon bar found at the Fort Wine Co. In lieu of Langley’s rich nature, Mountain View Conservation Centre hosts endangered wildlife species (in family groups) for re-introduction back into their natural habitat around the world.
Maple Ridge is the perfect place for the outdoor enthusiast.

Also known as the District Municipality in British Columbia and a member of the Greater Vancouver Regional District, Maple Ridge is the home of several high-profile athletes, such as baseball player Larry Walker, the late race-car driver Greg Moore, and hockey players Cam Neely, Brendan Morrison and Andrew Ladd.
Just 18 minutes away from Pacific Border RV Park, Surrey is sure an exciting place to visit. Considered as the second largest city by population after the city of Vancouver, it lies at the centre of the larger region known as the Lower Mainland of BC. It is known as the “City of Parks” with 500 parks and greenbelts wherein hundreds of kilometres of trails and walkways through natural areas can be enjoyed. In terms of historical development of the city, transportation has played its major role with the still active Canadian National Railway, BNSF Railway, and Southern Railway of British Columbia systems that stretch across Surrey to eastern provinces and southward into the United States. Surrey also hosts the Canada Cup International Women's Fastpitch Tournament every summer.
