    ummer is finally here, and many of our yearly plans and events await this season to become a reality. Living in Canada, we get a limited time to enjoy summer, so it’s best to make the most of it! 

    In this blog, we’ll go over the top five things you can do in the next couple of months to enjoy your summer to the fullest. They include: 

    • Going on road trips 
    • Trying a new sport or activity 
    • Visiting theme parks 
    • Traveling, and; 
    • Enjoying the water 

    Go on a road trip

    Going on a road trip is one of the best things you can do during the summer months. Every road trip you go on with family or friends helps you gain cherished memories for a lifetime. It’s also a great way to enjoy yourself for a while and let go of all your life stressors. They’re one of the things that helps you to freshen up your perspective on life.  

    If you live in western Canada, driving long distances in the winter can be difficult due to things like ice on highways and road closures. In the summer, you won’t have any of these issues and have the freedom to go wherever you want. 

    Try new sports and activities

    Summer is a great time to try new sports or activities, especially outdoor ones. You can explore new things and do something adventurous like paddleboarding, mountain biking, or ziplining. Summer is all about gaining new experiences and crossing things off your bucket list, so it’s a great time to try and discover new things that you might like. 

    You should try out a new activity during the summer because you may not get the chance to do it again until the next summer rolls around, meaning you’ll have to wait a whole year before you can experience the thrill again. 

    Visit theme parks

    Being in Canada means that operation of theme parks is very season-specific. While some theme or amusement parks do operate year round, most of them only operate during the summertime. You can experience all kinds of rides, roller coasters, and attractions while summer is still around. 

    Going to theme parks are a great way to spend a day in the summer, especially if you have kids. There are special types of food, activities, and shows that you can experience at these parks. At many theme parks, a new ride or attraction gets launched each year, making it different from years before and worth exploring.

    Whether that’s exploring towns in your province, traveling across the country, or going abroad, summer is the best time to travel. The weather is ideal, you can pack light, and there are more events happening everywhere. As well, the days are longer, and that means you will have more time to do things. It’s also the best time to visit other countries that are typically cold.  

    Always be on the lookout, as there are many travel packages and deals available during the summer months, including last minute ones. You won’t have to deal with flight delays and cancellations, and you can get discounts on many things. 

    Enjoy the water

    Summer is the only time you can truly enjoy bodies of water outdoors. Activities like boating, going to the beach, and enjoying a cruise can really only be done in the months from late May to early September depending on where you are, so don’t miss out on these opportunities. 

    In Alberta, summer is the only time when lakes and waterfalls in the mountains are completely melted. This is the prime time to enjoy all the lakes, rivers, ravines, and more that the area has to offer. Some road access to certain lakes are only open during the summer months as well. You can partake in kayaking, canoeing, rafting, and more water-based activities.
