Summer is here and if we lived out East, we’d be packing up to head for the family cottage or beach house. Warm lakes not being plentiful here, we do what we can to escape the city, and we head for the hills or the Rockies as the case may be. Our favorite thing to do as a family is hiking, and I’ve been exploring the local trails since I moved to Calgary 12 years ago.
Lovable llamas, playful hay wagon rides, fresh juicy berries or fantastically fragrant lavender: these are some of the attractions that may entice your family on a summer visit to an Alberta farm. As our society grows hungrier for healthier, close-to-the-land and back-to-nature foods, we are also looking for leisure activities ‘close to home.’
A trip with your family is a great way to create lasting memories, but traveling with babies and kids can be challenging. Vacation times are among the busiest of the year at Canadian airports and delays in security screening can occur when travellers are unaware of what they can and cannot bring in their carry-on bags.
Getting through airport security quickly and easily will help get your family vacation off to a great start. Here are our top tips to make your next family getaway as smooth as possible.
