Fun things to do in EDMONTON

Edmonton, the capital of Alberta, prides itself on being an incredibly family-friendly and kid-friendly city. Which  means, great news for all of us!

Edmonton has very cute animals at the Valley Zoo and wonderful ocean wildlife with Sea Life Caverns., and vintage fun with the Edmonton Queen Riverboat who have family friendly cruises!

Kids can immerse themselves in history with attractions like Fort Edmonton Park, which will let them experience life over a century ago, and the (very fun and fascinating!) education can continue with the museums including the Royal Alberta Museum.

Thrills and spills? You betcha! The very brave will love the super fast and fun rides at Galaxyland, as well as tackle the worlds largest indoor wave pool at World Waterpark! Impressive!  

Loving the water? Did we mention the worlds largest indoor lake at Deep Sea Derby where you get your own water guns and bumper boats? World records all round!

Sounds like Edmonton might be the place to experience the WORLDS best family fun - better get out there to test it out!
