There’s something special about summers in Alberta. Maybe it’s the 6+ months of winter that Albertans have to endure every year, or simply the province’s natural beauty. Either way, summer is the perfect time to have some family fun before the busy fall season creeps up.
Read some of the ways you can bring the family together without breaking the bank this summer!
School may be out, but the learning continues!
While your kids might be over-the-moon about not having to do any homework for a couple of months, summer activities can be both fun AND educational. They might actually enjoy learning in a different way than they do in school!
In Calgary, The Hangar Flight Museum will take your aviation knowledge to new heights or check out The Military Museums to discover 200 years of Canadian Military history. Of course, no history lesson would be complete without a trip to Heritage Park or The Glenbow Museum in Calgary.
Have you got some little sports fans? Take them to The Alberta Sports Hall of Fame & Museum in Red Deer. If you’re open to a road trip, take a look WAY back in time at The Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, or visit The Reynolds-Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin.
Help your little ones burn off some energy!
Summer… the time when you remember just how much energy your kids have! Lucky for you, there are plenty of summer activities that will tire your kiddos out so you don’t have to! Think of it as a stand-in for recess and gym class. Bonus: it’ll keep them healthy and active all summer long!
How about laser tag? Try Laser City, located both in Calgary and Edmonton.
Paintball is fun for your older, more daring kids! Bragg Creek Paint Ball is in Bragg Creek, and Capture The Flag is located in the Calgary & Cochrane area and offers paintball, airsoft, archery tag, and other activities.
Eager to jump around? Extreme Air Park is a giant indoor trampoline park in Calgary, and Jump 360 is one in Edmonton. Big Fun Play Centre is an indoor play center located in Rocky View County, and All-Stars Indoor Playground is a similar facility in Edmonton.
Can’t choose just one activity? Check out Shakers Fun Centre in Calgary. They offer a variety of activities including go-karting, mini golf, laser tag, rock climbing, mini bowling, and an inflatable village.
Take advantage of the nice weather and enjoy Alberta’s natural beauty!
Nothing beats a warm, sunny day in Alberta – especially in the Rocky Mountains! Take advantage of the nice weather and spend some time outdoors as a family.
For something a little more laid-back, visit the animals at The Edmonton Valley Zoo.
Don’t let a little rain stop you from having fun!
Let’s not kid ourselves, Alberta weather is unpredictable and our big blue skies don’t always shine. Don’t worry, there’s still a lot you can do if it’s raining or chilly outside.
The perfect rainy day activity: going to the movies! Catch a flick at Canyon Meadows Cinema in Calgary, at Century Theatre in Innisfail, Lacombe City Cinemas in Lacombe or at IMAX at TELUS World of Science in Edmonton.
Another classic rainy day activity… bowling! Show off your skills at Mountain View Bowl or Bowling Depot in Calgary, The Millennium Lanes in Okotoks, Sherwood Bowl or Bonnie Doon Bowling Lanes in Edmonton, and St. Albert Bowling Centre in St. Albert.
