If you are planning a cottage resort adventure for you and your family this summer, or simply want to get away during the winter, then a cottage resort visit can fit the bill nicely. However, planning fun activities that all the family can enjoy can prove to be an arduous task. However, with a little bit of planning, you can arrange activities that everyone can appreciate. Here, we provide some examples of fun family activities that you can plan during your next cottage resort visit.
Enjoy some solitude away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis by fishing with the family. You can rent a boat and take the family out so that they can enjoy the fresh air and the sights and sounds of the resort. Some resorts also provide fishing guides that can help you find the best spots to catch the most delicious fish, and may even provide you with some handy tips that can help you and your loved ones feel like veteran fishermen with a just a few fishing lessons.
If you decide to go to the cottage resort during summer, then you can swim outdoors, or catch some rays while reading a book or listening to some relaxing music. Or, if you are a snowbird who decided to take the family out to escape the frigid winters that Canada is notorious for, then some resorts offer spacious and luxurious indoor swimming pools as well. Swimming is not only a fun activity but is also a fun way to burn calories and get a cardiovascular workout. In addition, you can get everyone in the family involved by engaging in water sports, such as swimming competitions, synchronized swimming, diving, and even an exciting water polo match.
Arts and Crafts
Not all of your activities need to necessarily be outdoors. You can enjoy some indoor time with your family by engaging in fun arts and crafts activities. From papier-mâché to bricolage activities, create wonderful works of art and get the creative juices flowing by handcrafting something that you can take home and proudly display on the mantle.
Hiking is a simple yet enjoyable activity that everyone in the family can take part in, regardless of their age or range of mobility. Breathe in the fresh air, marvel at the beautiful wildlife, and get a nice workout by exploring the local hiking trails.
If you are looking for something a little more vigorous, then biking may fit the bill. Ride on solo bicycles, or rent a tandem bike so that your family can ride together in style and comfort. Cycling is one of the best ways to burn calories and get a superb workout, while also allowing you to explore resorts in Kingston during the spring, fall, or summer.
After you have participated in many fun and exciting activities, you will likely have built up an appetite. As such, dining out can be a great way to get the family together to enjoy a nice and relaxing family dinner.
Family Activities in the Kingston Area
Kingston is known for its hallowed historic past, and there are many activities that can be enjoyed in the Kingston area. If you have a thirst for knowledge then you may try and sate your appetite for all things historical by visiting the Kingston Archaeological Centre, or the Kingston Scout Museum. In fact, Kingston has a museum for virtually everything and everyone, from military museums to medical history museums, and even a marine museum that focuses on the Great Lakes at Kingston.
There are also many art galleries that you can visit while you are enjoying resorts in Kingston. For instance, you and your family can visit the Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre, or the spectacular Union Gallery at Queen’s University. If geology and archaeology are more to your liking, then you can take your family on a trip they will never forget by visiting the Kingston Archaeological Centre and the Miller Museum of Geology.
Those who enjoy the taste of a briny pickle should stop by the local pickle festival to enjoy the best pickles Canada has to offer. If you are more of a garlic aficionado then the Perth Garlic festival is the right destination for you. Even sports buffs will learn quite a bit at the International Hockey Hall of Fame Museum, and those interested in something a little darker or foreboding can participate in a Kingston penitentiary tour.
