Why Canada is the Perfect Place for a Family Vacation

From vibrant cities to rural, rugged landscapes, Canada has everything to offer. If you’re looking for a family-friendly holiday destination, this sublime North American country should be top of your list. No matter what your interests, you’ll find a wide range of attractions, excursions, and expeditions.

The Calgary Stampede
For an authentic Canadian experience, it’s hard to beat the annual Calgary Stampede. If you’re vacationing in July, be sure to plan a visit to ‘The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth’. As well as world-class shows, you’ll have fairground rides and stalls to explore. The carnival-like atmosphere is ideal for families and the wide range of exhibitions, shows and attractions mean there’s always something new to see. 

When you’re planning your trip to the Calgary Stampede, you’ll want to arrange accommodation well in advance. With a handy hotel in Airdrie, Alberta, you can base yourself close to the venue and near to other attractions too. Amenities, such as indoor pools, fitness centers, and saunas mean you’ll have the perfect place to relax after a long day at the Stampede. Over 1 million people visit the Calgary Stampede each year and it’s one of the most popular events in the country, so be sure to plan your trip in advance and book your accommodation early.

Calgary Zoo
Home to over 1,400 animals, Calgary Zoo has impressive facilities and enclosures that are designed to mimic the animals’ natural habitats. With bears, hippos, tigers, gorillas, pandas, penguins and much, much more, it’s easy to spend an entire day wandering around this fantastic environment.

Routinely described as one of Canada’s top family-friendly attractions, there are interactive exhibitions for children of all ages and regular events too. Throughout the festive period, the Zoo runs the ZOOLIGHTS program, which is filled with activities, such as Wizarding Wednesdays and Potions Class. If you’re planning a winter break, it’s an ideal venue for families and young people. 

Canada Olympic Park
Now open to members of the public, the whole family can enjoy themselves at this spectacular Olympic Park. Winter events include the Acura Tube Park, ice skating, skiing, snowboarding and hockey and you can also try summer bobsledding, zip line tours, free falls, skyline luge, mountain biking and mini golf throughout the summer. 

Designed to be a family-friendly experience, there are activities aimed at all ages, and you can even book lessons or courses to hone your skills. Whether you want to explore the outdoor slopes, take a scenic ride on the chairlifts or free fall from eight stories up, the Canada Olympic Park has it all. 

Planning your vacation to Canada
In a country that covers 10 million square kilometers, you’re never going to run out of places to visit. From the magical national parks to the urban life of the cities; you’ll find family-friendly activities in every location. If you want to keep toddlers busy or make sure teens are entertained, Canada is the perfect place for children of all ages, and grown-ups too.
