It’s #TourismWeek and to celebrate we have compiled a list of great activities to do around the community in support of our local tourism industry.

1. Mackin House Museum – step back in time to the Edwardian era at Coquitlam Heritage Society’s Mackin House, with self or
guided tours in French and English. Visit for more information

2. Evergreen Cultural Centre – whether you’re in the mood to watch an indie film, listen to a concert, or peruse the art gallery, head over to to plan your next visit

3. Place des arts – both an arts centre and music school, this establishment offers a variety of classes and camps as well as an  art gallery and artisan shop. Check out for more info.

4. Societe francophone de Maillardville/Festival du bois – parlez-vous francais, or wish you could? This society has activities for everyone. Visit to check out when their next event is.

5. Rocky Point Park – Take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and splash in the outdoor pool, walk along the trails, or try your hand at kayaking the waters of Rocky Point. Don’t forget to stop by Pajos for some good ole fish & chips or grab a cone at Rocky Point Ice Cream.

Let’s celebrate all the great local spots here in the Tri-Cities! Be sure to take a photo the next time you visit any of these locations, and share it with us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
