Things To Do

8 things to do at home and around Edmonton this weekend (July 10-12)

Via Urban Pedal Tours

Howdy, pals! Well, we’ve got another weekend in Edmonton ahead of us and we’re pretty excited about it. After all, the city is opening up more and more, the weather is looking pretty decent, and Edmonton’s summer is about to pop.

Here are 8 things to do at home and around Edmonton this weekend.

Head to the Snow Valley Aerial Park

The Snow Valley Aerial Park is open for the summer! If you’re looking for a little high flying (but safe) fun this weekend, we guarantee this is where you should be. Plus, this is the summer of doing stuff nearby, after all.

When: All weekend long!
Where: 13204 Rainbow Valley Rd NW

Learn at the Telus World of Science

The Telus World of Science officially reopened for the summer this week! Head down there to check out an exhibition on the science of Ripley’s Believe It or Not. Or, skip that and just go watch an IMAX show about crocodiles in Australia.

When: All weekend long!
Where: 11211 142 St NW

Enjoy recreation at the Rec Centre

A simple suggestion, but we think worth sharing nonetheless. Edmonton’s rec centres officially reopened this week, so you can finally get back to the gym/playing basketball with a few friends. Now, all we have to do is wait for the pools to come back.

When: All weekend long!
Where: Locations around Edmonton

Go on a Ghost Tour

Yup, you can see a completely different side of Edmonton this weekend with a ghost tour. Choose between a tour of Old Strathcona or the U of A, and enjoy some downright chilling tales. Should be a smash hit considering the popularity of true crime shows, no?

When: Tours nightly
Where: Locations around Edmonton

Just get outside

With a high of 29 degrees predicted on Saturday, we just need to remind you to get outside this weekend. Whether you’re walking around a park, enjoy a farmers market, or playing sports, just enjoy some great summer weather when we get it!

When: Whenever you can!
Where: Wherever you can!

Watch a movie at the Cinema

The Metro Cinema officially reopens on Friday! Head down and enjoy a great film under new social distancing protocols. Finally, safe popcorn enjoyed in a safe way at the movie theatre. Perfect if it does end up raining on Sunday!

When: Opens Friday, July 10th
Where: 8712 109 St NW

Take a breather in the Rockies

We think that since the Fairmont Resorts at Lake Louise, Banff and Jasper all landed on Travel and Leisure’s top 10 destination resorts in Canada, then maybe it’s worth splurging on a weekend trip to one of them. Double down with a round of golf and really live the Albertan mountain high life.

When: Whenever!
Where: Lake Louise, Banff, and Jasper

Mix beer and biking

But in a safe way, thanks to Urban Pedal Tours. The company has reopened for summer this year under new guidelines, so that you can stay safe while still enjoying what is honestly an amazing way to experience local breweries.

When: Tours daily
Where: Multiple routes available

There you have it! Those are our top picks for what to do in Edmonton this weekend. Enjoy!
