Ski resorts are quickly becoming year-round destinations for adventure and fun. This summer, families can visit 10 different resorts spread across southern Alberta and the BC Rockies, trying everything from a thrilling rollercoaster ride down the hill to lift-accessed hiking through alpine meadows.
My family loves going for bike rides, and we try to make each outing a fun adventure. A successful family biking day might include a stop for ice-cream, a stop at a coffee shop to keep the adults’ energy levels high, and a stop at one playground, at least (bonus points if it has a wading pool or spray park), as well as a stop at interesting terrain (bridges, riverside pathways, a mixture of paved and natural surfaces, etc.). Here are three of my family’s favorite family biking adventures we enjoy each year in May and June.
Can’t afford to jet off to the Caribbean or to some other tropical locale this winter? Plan a few family days or weekends in the mountains instead, and try some of these fun activities with the kids!
We all know this is the summer to travel within Canada, right? With our dollar not doing us any favors, plus all the 150th celebrations, it’s a golden opportunity to stay within our boarders and explore the Great White North. I’ve spent the past two years sussing out the best Canada has to offer families. The result is my first book: 25 Places in Canada Every Family Should Visit. If you want to stick close to home this summer, here are my top picks for engaging and affordable destinations.
