The Coolest Things to Do in Surrey

I love living in Surrey. It is a city full of pride. Many of my fellow neighbors and I volunteer our time to the community. We take pride in this city because there is a lot to be proud of. It is a beautiful town full of excellent attractions. You never have to worry about finding something to do here in Surrey. There is always something on the go. If you want to experience my magical Surrey, here is a list of the coolest things to do around here.

1. Make a Trip to Crescent Beach

The thing I love the most about living in Surrey is Crescent Beach. Whenever I am feeling a little low, I simply head to the beach to instantly put a smile on my face. This a great spot because there is something here for everyone. A walk along the beach, fishing, swimming, boating, picnicking, sunbathing, birding and general beachside loveliness are all on offer here. I also like to eat at The Cabin when I am at the Crescent Beach.

2. Go for a Bike Ride at Mud Bay Park

I am a bit of a birder, and that is the main reason my favorite place to pump my pedals is out at Mud Bay Park. This attraction is one of the most incredible birding spots in the world. The park is inside the Boundary Bay Important Bird Area, which is part of Western Hemisphere Shorebird reserve network. As I glide my bicycle around the many paths that wind their way through the park, I am blown away by the sheer number of the birds. They are everywhere you turn. It is really a beautiful place to experience. You don’t have to ride your bike either. Hiking is another great way to experience Mud Bay Park.

3. Go Shopping at the Surrey Night Market

Summer is one of the best times of the year in Surrey, and one of the highlights of the season for me is when the first Surrey Night Market of the year happens in the beginning of June. I absolutely love this festival of the senses. There is live music, rides and entertainment for all ages. The vendors at the market are incredible. They sell a wide range of crafts, goods and food. You have to bring a big appetite with you to the Surrey Night Market. Your eyes will be signaling constantly to your stomach that another delicious treat has appeared in front of them.

4. Taste Some Delicious Beer and Spirits

For me, one of the coolest attractions in town is the Central City Brewers + Distillers. The tour of the brewery and distillery is always a must-stop for all my friends who come to visit me that enjoy a good drink. The tour is fun and educational, but it is the brewpub experience that is most worth the visit. The hardest part every time I go is deciding which of their delicious beers on tap to fill my growlers with.
