Top 5 Things to Do & See in Surrey

Surrey is a big city and it's only getting bigger. Just like in any big city, it's hard to keep track of all the incredible things that are going on, and even harder to figure out which ones to make time for. From parks to parties, restaurants to the outdoors, below you'll find the top 5 things to go, see, do, or all the above, in Surrey.

#5: Old Surrey Restaurant


Family run since 1975, the Old Surrey Restaurant is the epitome of local heritage. The ingredients on your plate come directly from the family's own farm in Chilliwack, BC. The multi-generational dedication to excellence is reason enough to put a visit here at the top of your priority list. There's a reason OpenTable put Old Surrey Restaurant in the Top 50 Romantic Restaurants in Canada

The restaurants here offer unobstructed views of the ocean, and Blackie Spit Park on the beach is a fantastic place to take your dogs. There's something for everyone here, making it the perfect place to spend your day.
