Abbotsford Hotels

Situated just 2.5 hours from Seattle and an hour from Vancouver, lies one of Canada’s most picturesque beauty spots. Originally an agricultural city, Abbotsford is now a major transitory location for Americans and Canadians traveling ‘over the border’. Its self-proclaimed nickname of ‘the city in the country’ says a lot about the mentality and atmosphere surrounding this unique city. With a mix of urban and rural amenities and a history rooted firmly in the soil, Abbotsford gives tourists an experience of British Columbia like never before.

Things to see

Compared with more Eastern regions on Canada, Abbotsford’s temperate, mild climate means the city offers a wealth of year-round outdoor activities for all the family. The local parks, mountains, and lakes provide ample opportunities for hiking, fishing, and biking, and the picturesque scenery is a pull for nature buffs, photographers, and artists alike. In the 19th century Abbotsford’s agricultural riches and picture perfect scenery attracted many pioneers, who built small homesteads and farms in what is now the city. The buildings and plots of these still exist and have been made into a year-round open-air visitor center. The Clayburn Village has a gallery showcasing the First Nations Art including paintings, jewelry, and pioneer and Canadian-Indian prints. If all the fresh air leaves you in need of refreshment then top-notch restaurants and bustling bars line the streets of central Abbotsford. You can sample everything from local Canadian dishes in rustic urban lodges to glamorous cocktails on of the city’s rooftop terraces.
