Although Spring is in the air, Calgarians are well aware that doesn’t mean the days of frigid temperatures are over. In fact, the average temperature in March in Calgary is 4°C. So, what do you do when you want to get the kids out of the house to explore something new but can’t depend on unpredictable Alberta weather? Create your own indoor art tour through downtown’s Plus 15 network!
For many, Spring Break means more time with the family, which makes Glenbow an ideal destination. With over 90,000 square feet chock full of art and history, you and your crew will never get bored. If anything, you might be left wondering where to start. Here are a few suggestions to get you well on your way to a wonderful day of adventure.
Although the financial ‘holiday hangover’ can leave you dreading your bank statement this time of year, it doesn’t mean your family has to be stuck at home for the rest of winter! From free meals to low-cost movies and much more, Calgary has many budget- friendly activities for children that will keep your family entertained and your bank account intact.
Cross-country skiing is an affordable winter sport that is easy to learn for the whole family. It’s free to ski on most groomed trails, and once you invest in the equipment, you’re good to go. I recommend starting off with second-hand skis and boots while the kids are still growing, or you can rent skis for the occasional day if you aren’t ready to commit to the sport yet.
