7 Places Every Canadian Kid Should See

Squamish, British Columbia

Active families will love this Canada's outdoor activity capital, which is conveniently located between Whistler and Vancouver.

Revelstoke, British Columbia

Revy, a mountain resort town along British Columbia's renowned powder route, is most known for its serious skiing, but in the summertime it becomes one of the country's most energetic family playgrounds.

Victoria, British Columbia

It would be difficult to locate a city with as many kid-friendly attractions grouped together as this one.

Vernon, British Columbia

Vernon is home to an astounding amount of orchards and is surrounded by three lakes, making it a less crowded option for families who enjoy the outdoors than the Okanagan region.

Canmore, Alberta

This alpine resort town, only minutes from the Banff National Park gates, boasts all the wildlife and pristine wilderness you could want for, but with less tourists.

Dinosaur Provincial Park, Alberta

Two hours outside of Calgary is Canada's version of Jurassic Park. On fossil safari trips, small palaeontologists delve deep into the prehistoric past amid the hoodoos of the Canadian Badlands.

Edmonton, Alberta

The capital city of Alberta offers much more than just "the Mall." (However, West Edmonton Mall should definitely be on your list of things to do, as Galaxyland is one of the biggest indoor theme parks in North America.)
