When you cruise through the sky over this spectacular region, you'll know why they often say it's the journey that counts, not just the destination. So sit back and keep your eyes on the window as the captain guides you down towards Abbotsford International Airport (YXX) in Chilliwack.
Unfortunately, there aren't that many accommodations conveniently located to the gates. The Brookside Inn is your best bet, but be sure to secure a room well in advance.
Get a taste of the area while remaining conveniently close to the airport by staying in one of the nearby neighborhoods. Spend a little time exploring Clearbrook and its 5 hotels. Some quality establishments here are the Sandman Hotel & Suites Abbotsford and the Best Western Plus Regency Inn & Conference Centre.
There are a few diversions to be found without straying too far from the airport. Regardless if it's a big band concert or kids' entertainment, Tradex Trade and Exhibition Centre hosts a range of superb events and performances. With it being just 0.2 miles (0.3 kilometers) away, there's no excuse not to visit.
Now you know where you are going and what you want to do, be sure to reserve your hotel as soon as you've figured out your dates.
