Spring has finally arrived—and like everyone, we’re excited to be packing up our cars and heading out to explore and reconnect to the world outside! After months and months (and months!) of snow, we’re eager to rediscover everything Alberta has to offer and there’s no better time to do it than during the May long weekend.
Five things to do this May long weekend:
1. Get an Experience Alberta’s History annual pass
This will get you unlimited admission toAlberta Culture’s network of provincial historic sites and museums for one full year! What’s not to love?
2. Visit one of Alberta Culture’s historic sites and museums
Starting on the May long weekend, all Alberta Culture historic sites and museums will be open for the summer season. From the Oil Sands Discovery Centre in Fort McMurray to the Remington Carriage Museum in Cardston, there is at least one near you!
3. Use the Alberta Culture Calendar to find even more great events
Prefer to stay close to home for a stay-cation? You can check out the online art collection from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts or use the Alberta Culture Calendar to find art exhibits, festivals and events in your community. Download the iPhone app for easy on-the-go access and enjoy your break!
4. Enjoying the great outdoors? Play it safe & be prepared!
Our friends at Alberta Tourism Parks and Recreation has posted some helpful tips about camping during the long weekend. Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development keeps you up-to-date on fire bans and environmental conditions throughout the province and Alberta Justice and Solicitor General reminds us that law enforcement will be out over the long weekend to help keep us safe.
5. Connect with Alberta Culture – on Twitter and Instagram!
Okay, maybe this one isn’t an activity but we believe that our culture is further enriched when it’s enjoyed and shared with each other. Share your great adventures with us by tweeting us @AlbertaCulture or on Instagram AlbertaCulture, #ABCulture.
