The already iconic destination got a major renovation last year, and this is its first full season back! Family-friendly options that double as date ideas are few and far between, but we definitely think Fort Edmonton Park is a great example of it.

Edmonton’s local golf courses are finally opening for the season. And while finding an actual tee-time for cheap is relative, we can say that a trip to the driving range is as much as breakfast at McDonald’s! Borrow a pal’s clubs and go have some fun.
