Dubbed “Sunny Tsawwassen”, this lovely community straddles the peninsula between Boundary Bay and the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal. It receives nearly 40% less rain than Vancouver so is a great option for a winter’s day trip worth of exploring both indoors and out.
Kid Approved Itinerary
Start the day with a Bacon Breakfast Sandwich at Newmans Fine Foods at Tsawwassen Springs. They will happily modify this delicious, homemade free-rage egg sammy to accommodate the littlest members of the family.
Then head into Tsawwassen proper and pop into Toys and Tech. Browse the extensive selection of Lego, Playmobil and Melissa & Doug. They have amazing science inspired toys and kits for all ages. Don’t miss the adorable Chocolate Bear Shoppe across the street in the Town Centre Mall.
Time for some fresh air! And there is no better place to get it than Centennial Beach at Boundary Bay Regional Park. This expansive sandy beach boasts beachcombing, piles of fort-inspiring driftwood and miles of tidal flats. Discover the top-notch, completely accessible adventure playground. Pop into Petra’s by L’Aromas on the way out to the beach to stock up on hot chocolate.
When it’s time to feed the tribe, head into Mario’s Kitchen for a menu to please from smallest to tallest. The kids’ menu is full of healthy choices, and grown-ups are spoilt for choice with a wide range of pizzas, salads, ribs & handhelds. Be sure to try the seasonal pour from local brewery Four Winds.
To wrap up the day up with a bang, swing by Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl and Grill at Tsawwassen Mills. The eye-popping, underwater themed bowling is amazing fun for all. Kids love the shark and alligator ball returns. With projectors, lighting and décor to compliment, this is a mini-theme park experience without the commitment.
Visit this beautiful and personable destination full of family fun.
