At Canada’s only border town, you’ll find there’s much more to do than just hopping back and forth between the border of Alberta and Saskatchewan. We break down some of the best activities to unwind and relax with this summer.
Things to Do in Lloydminster: Explore Every Single Park
Believe it or not, Lloydminster is home to 35 parks. Each has its own features and amenities with many of them featuring beautiful flower gardens. Walk along the trails for each or simply enjoy the wide-open space to set up your own games and activities and show off your skills at playing tag and bocce ball.
Find All the Local Hidden Gems
Like many cities in both Alberta and Saskatchewan, there are plenty of local gems to check out and explore. Some of the notable ones you can’t miss include Cliff Rose for Clothes. One of the oldest stores in town, the shop has been around for over 30 years and with good reason. They feature an excellent, elegant selection of luxury brand names, a full range of men’s sizes, plus scores of products perfect for dress wear, casual wear, and much more.
Plus, there are many other local fashion shops just like Cliff Rose in Lloydminster, with some even featuring handmade clothes from the owners themselves!
Rediscover Your Adventuring Spirit
Summer weather is made for getting outdoors and you can have even more fun doing it at the Blue Mountain Adventure Park. There are a wide variety of camping sites to choose from and a huge breadth of activities available. These include ziplining, wall-climbing, paintballing, and more!
If you are looking for a place that can make you feel like a kid again, this spot should be at the top of your list.
Try to Escape
That probably sounds overly ominous, but while “escaping” from Lloydminster is easy, the escape rooms at Border Escape tend to be a lot more challenging. With 4 different rooms to choose from with their own difficulty, each will test your brain to the full extent.
Become a Badass Viking
Ok sure, you won’t get the powers of Thor from your experience, but you can have a fun time throwing axes at Axe Rising. With a variety of weapons to throw, you can not only feel like an action movie hero throwing axes, but also knives and other weapons in their safe facilities.
Don’t pass up the opportunity to explore all that Lloydminster has to offer. A vacation here could be your best one yet!
