    Telus Spark Science Centre

    There’s always something fascinating to discover at the science centre! From now until June 9th, you can check out Circus! and learn more about the science behind it. Get ready for elastic acrobats, juggling, sword swallowers and interactive exhibitions. Visit the Dome Theatre and discover everything about the universe through a movie or live planetarium show. Whatever you end up seeing, you won’t be disappointed. Grab your tickets at Telus Spark -- they're a steal at just $26 for adults and $19 for kids.

    The Hanger Flight Museum

    This museum is the perfect place to learn everything about flying and airplanes. The Hanger Flight Museum, formerly known as the Aero Space Museum of Calgary, holds 20 aircrafts, as well as uniforms, exhibits and stories from people who designed and flew the aircrafts. There are some historically important aircrafts here that will fascinate both adults and kids -- so there’s something for everyone to enjoy here. Tickets are just $15 for adults and $8 for kids.

    The Calgary Zoo

    The Calgary Zoo is always a great place to visit with your family. This March Break, check out the Penguin Walk, which happens daily at 11 am, and allows visitors to observe king penguins as they waddle through the zoo. You can also take the opportunity to see giant pandas and learn more about these incredible animals -- all while you eat breakfast! Plus, don’t miss a very unique Safari brunch event, which happens every Sunday, in the heart of Destination Africa. If these activities are of no interest to you, spend your time exploring six acres of botanical gardens, a prehistoric park and 1000 creatures.

    Bow Habitat Station

    The Bow Habitat Station is another great option for a fun family adventure day. Get ready to learn all about Alberta’s fish, wildlife and the importance of water in our world by visiting the Discovery Centre. Check out the Interpretive Wetlands and wander around the natural trails. The Bow Habitat Station is open Monday to Saturday, from 10 am to 4 pm. Admission is just $10 for adults and $6 for kids.

    Calgary Police Interpretive Centre

    If you’re looking for something fun and free, Calgary’s Police Museum is the place to go. Explore 50 exhibits, true-crime displays and learn all about what it takes to keep a city like Calgary safe. Don’t miss the Forensic Lab, where you can learn all  about identifying fingerprints and blood spatter analysis, and also put your crime-solving skills to the test. The Calgary Police Museum is a great place for both kids and adults!

    If fun is what you’re after this March Break, Timbercreek hopes this post helps you find a few exciting places to visit in Calgary.

    Hit the Slopes

    Let’s face it, the winters can be harsh here, but don’t hide away and hibernate! Embrace your environment and enjoy ski and snowboard season. The Laurentians region is the closest ski destination to Montreal and home to Mont Tremblant, voted the best overall resort in Eastern North America by Ski Magazine for the last 19 years. It’s a great place to visit, whether you plan to be on or off the slopes, and is less than a 2 hour drive from Montreal.

    Nuit Blanche and Montréal en Lumière

    Montréal en Lumière is on now until March 11th. It’s a celebration of food, fun, wine, winter and lights. The highlight of the festival is Nuit Blanche on Saturday, March 4th. The party goes until 6am on Sunday March 5th! It draws 350,000 people for a mostly free night of over 200 cultural, culinary, arts and just plain fun activities. Not to be missed!

    Underground Art in the Underground City

    If you need some relief from the cold, you're in luck! Montreal is home to the underground city and from March 4th to March 11th you can revel in the creative and thermal energy underground, during Art Souterrain. It’s a 7 km underground circuit featuring 107 contemporary art projects.

    Jazz it Up

    Jazz is not a fairweather friend in Montreal. You don’t have to wait until the summer Jazz Fest to enjoy some live. Get your fix from March 18th to 25th at Jazz en Rafale, a mini festival during the last weekend of winter and the first weekend of spring.

    To find your home with Timbercreek Communities in Quebec, please visit our website. Timbercreek offers several residence options in the Montreal area including: Cote St-Luc, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Montreal Downtown and Southshore, Pointe Claire, St. Laurent and Verdun.
