You can be a tourist in your own town by climbing aboard the upcoming Heritage Sites Bus Tour.
Organized by Historic Stewart Farm, the tour will be offered on Thursday, Feb. 18 or Saturday, Feb. 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Guiding the way will be the curator of Stewart Farm, who will share stories about the sites and historic buildings the tour will take in along the way, from Crescent Beach, Cloverdale, and the original Surrey Centre.
Highlights include the Peace Arch, Cloverdale’s replica 1910 Interurban Station, and Redwood Park, home to more than 50 different tree species – including the famed redwood giants, and a mysterious fairy forest that’s delighting visitors from near and far.
A Surrey Heritage planner will also be on board to answer questions and to provide insight into the city’s heritage planning activities.
The outing ends with a stop at the Stewart farmhouse, where tour participants will be welcomed into the cozy kitchen for tea and treats baked in the wood stove oven.
The cost of the tour is $26 per person (ages 16 and up).
Space is limited. Pre-register by calling 604-592-6956.
