Weekend Activities In and Around Surrey, BC

Weekend Activities In and Around Surrey, BC

In today’s world, we are so caught up with providing for our needs that we may forget what it’s like to just relax. We spend so much of our time at work that our idea of relaxation is often to sleep longer! While this may be what most people do, if you’re reading this, then we urge you not to. There are plenty of things that qualify as relaxation, among which a getaway is what helps the most.

Think about taking a vacation on sun-drenched beaches, getting a relaxing massage at a spa or having a ‘cold one’ with your friends at a scenic location. Imagining such a scene is somehow calming, is it not? However, once the imagination ends and you’ve decided that you need a vacation, a new problem arises.

“Where shall I go to?” is a question every person planning a vacation has to ask. Now you may have many places in mind, but we’re here to tell you why anybody in Surrey, in British Columbia, Canada should check out one of the getaways listed here.

Heritage Cabin

First, we’ll start off with something within the great outdoors. Every time we see an architectural structure built centuries ago, we have a feeling of nostalgia, wouldn’t you agree? Our minds immediately start to think about what life might have been like during the times long gone. Surrey, similarly, has a rich history and this particular spot is known for its cabin that was built in the 1870’s. What is so unique about this cabin? It’s the last of its kind and pretty much the only one remaining. Its presence gives you the feeling of hope and reminds you that if you want to go big in life, start small.

The Theatre of Dreams

A beach is always a beautiful place to relax and unwind. The sound of ocean waves hitting the sand is soothing and brings peace. So, a day on the beach is always welcome, but what if, apart from enjoying the beach, you also got to enjoy theatre? That would be amazing wouldn’t it? Well, that is precisely what the Crescent Beach offers its visitors. The Beach House Theatre, established in 2012, provides the best kind of entertainment for everyone present. Enacting some of Shakespeare’s best plays and many others, this beach is a must visit.

Up-Up and Away! (Sky Zone)

Are you planning on taking this trip with your family? Do you have kids? Are you a thrill seeker? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then this is the place for you. It’s called Sky Zone because you will most likely be in the air all the time. Why may that be? Because it is the world’s first indoor trampoline park! Kids get to burn their energy and parents get to relieve stress. From bouncing off trampolines and diving into a pit filled with 10,000 foam cubs to playing Ultimate Dodgeball, this place has everything you need to get the adrenalin pumping.

Climbers Alert – Coastal Climbing Centre

This is an indoor climbing gym that anyone aged five or over can enjoy. The facility is built to accommodate all types of climbers, from experienced to beginners. The Coastal Climbing Centre is a great place to visit if you’re an adrenalin junkie. The different levels of climbs will let you test yourself and will push you beyond your limits.

Online Casinos

We know you’ve heard of the fantastic casinos in Las Vegas and that they are worth the visit. Sure, but since we’re talking about Surrey, it would be amazing if they had a casino too right? Online casinos may not give you the feel of walking into a casino, but they do let you enjoy bonuses and cash out. Play virtual games, socialize and get the real casino experience all while staying indoors. This is your getaway without really getting away (unless, of course, if you enjoy your online casino gaming by the beach, on your laptop).

The E-Exit

Whether you admit it or not, the mystery genre is something that interests all. Solving a mystery and watching it unfold is a thrilling experience, even more so if you’re the one solving it. E-Exit offers you that very choice and is a must visit for two reasons. First, it thoroughly embraces the mystery genre and second, you’re the one who is solving the mystery. The mystery is in the form of the ‘escape the room’ genre where they lock you in a room.

They have themes for these rooms like the Antique Museum – The Unsettled Spirit, Military Base and Cabin 13. The players are given interesting puzzles, riddles and mechanical components that provide clues to solving the mystery and help them to escape.

It’s the Fusion Fest

If you’re someone who loves to party and experience new cultures, then this is the place for you. The Fusion Fest was named ‘Best Festival’ at the annual Special Event Gala Awards in 2014. This is a two day festival with fifty recording artists and performers that are sure to make your weekend amazing. The food offered here are delicacies from around the globe that are sure to light up your palate.

To add to the excitement, the festival lets its participating countries put up pavilions that let you experience their culture first hand. Since there is a price for the best-dressed pavilion, you can be sure that it will meet your expectations.

Conclusion

City life is frustrating, to say the least, and is often responsible for many of our health problems. The same routine in life dulls us and robs us of our joy, and that is no way to live. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance to break free and take some time out for yourselves. So check your calendar and mark a date, commit to it and don’t let anything stop you.

Taking time off from work is equally important as giving time for work. Why is this important? Because you wouldn’t be able to do much work if your health kept failing you, now would you? So, remember, there is nothing wrong with wanting a bit of relaxation. Now all you have to do is pack your bags and take a ticket to you know where. Most importantly, make sure to keep work in its place and have some fun!
