Amy
“I do appreciate Abbotsford’s lifestyle. It is fairly low key. I have a group of friends and we just hang out together. It’s close to the city, so you have an hour drive and you are in Vancouver or any other Lower Mainland city. The mountains are close by, the ocean is an hour away as well, but you can be a little bit removed and have a quieter lifestyle here, which I appreciate.”
