This summer started off slow and is finishing off strong! We have seen non-stop sunshine and hot temperatures here in Edmonton & most of Alberta. Which is most welcomed when we all know how short lived our summers are.
Most of us Albertans aren’t built for the hot weather so these are a few easy ways to cool down and beat the heat.
There’s nothing better than getting out on the water on a hot day! If you don’t want to go through the hassel of getting your own boat or raft, Paddle Station offers rafts and kayaks to rent and enjoy.

Grab Some Ice Cream
You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream. Especially on a hot day! Edmonton has a number of amazingly delicious ice cream places to chose from so there is no shortage of options!
A few of our favs:

Pack your sand castle building tools and hit up one of these beaches:
Enjoy the water without all the UV Rays! World Waterpark is located inside West Edmonton Mall and features the worlds largest indoor wave pool, 17 unique waterslides and play features, a zipline over the park, and all of this while sitting at a comfortable 31°C.
