Back to Canada family vacations.
The original all-inclusive, all-American vacation experience, dude ranches are rooted in American traditions offering positive ways to enjoy time together.
Because hectic schedules sustain the daily rhythm of most households making mini breaks the ideal way to squeeze extra fun out of the season before getting out the winter gear.
For more fun on your family vacation just add a dinosaur or maybe two and wait for the squeals, shouts, smiles and non-stop questions to begin.
For active families summer family vacation time is precious and it is pointless to spend a minute or a dime on predictable and boring activities in vacation places without a natural WOW! Factor.
Family road trips have more value when there’s a plan with a purpose and even better with a few surprises along the way. Red Coat Trail offers old forts and black horses, bison herds and seas of grass, and perhaps most important – dinosaurs!
Music makes any vacation more memorable and Canadians have mastered the art of combing music with plenty of festive activities well-suited for families on vacation.
Any part of the famous Red Coat Trail makes an ideal family field trip but the Siege on Fort Whoop Up and the video at Head-Smashed-in Buffalo Jump make the adventure come alive. In Alberta the Trail offers crazy, wild fun. Don’t forget to wear your boots.
Or maybe you are looking or maybe you are for dinosaurs, pirates, space ships, cowboys, and baby belugas? You will find them all in B.C. anytime of the year, including the winter months when having fun with your kids can be more challenging.
