Are your kids on summer break? Do you have some vacation time coming up? There are loads of exciting family adventures to be had here in Edmonton this summer. 

Take your family to some of Edmonton's most enjoyable family attractions, like the Telus World of Science. Kids of all ages can enjoy a day filled with science, go on a curiosity voyage, complete experiments, explore space, and visit the Zeidler Dome.

Learning while on vacation is easy with the Royal Alberta Museum. Your family won't even know they are learning with the fun interactive programs and galleries. Learn about bugs in the living bug gallery, let the kids have fun in the children's gallery, see the Edmontosaurus skeleton, and so much more.

When you need a break from hectic schedules and just want to have good-old fashioned fun, Edmonton doesn't disappoint. Spend a day bouncing around and playing dodge ball with the fam at Launchpad Trampoline Park, just a short drive from our Strathcona Suites. Or, have a laser tag war at Laser Quest, just 10 minutes from our West Edmonton apartments.

Take in a sporting event close to home with an Edmonton Eskimos football game at Commonwealth Stadium. The Eskimos have the best fans in the CFL, and from July 25th to September 7th, kids 17 and under enjoy free admission for all home games

Edmonton is a city that celebrates. Join your community at one of the many outstanding summer festivals. The Taste of Edmonton, a perfect attraction for foodies of all ages, happens in mid-July along with K-Days, a 10 day extravaganza of rides, attractions, shopping, and music. During August, families can attend the Dragon Boat Festival down the North Saskatchewan River, or watch the Edmonton Airshow and wonder at the amazing aerobatic performances.

Edmonton is full of delicious family restaurants to choose from. Dining out as a family is a fun experience when you visit Mr. Mikes at the West Edmonton Mall and play board games while you wait for your meal. The Melting Pot, a fondue restaurant, is an exciting family spot near our South Edmonton apartments. Kids will have fun dipping their food in pots of cheese and chocolate.
