March Break can be a blessing and a curse. This week off from school offers an opportunity for some quality family time, but also poses the threat of the inevitable “I’m bored” from restless kids. To ensure your Break is both fun and family-oriented, we’ve created a list of 6 Family-Friendly Oakville Activities. Read on for more.

Get the kids outside and active with a walk at an Oakville park, trail or garden. Whether you bring the family for a scenic lakeside walk, explore local history at one of Oakville’s heritage trails or simply peruse one of our picturesque gardens, you’re sure to fall in love with Oakville’s outdoor offerings.

 

3) Gaming, Great Food and More at Dave & Buster’s

While a nature walk is a great way to stay active and explore the environment, sometimes kids just want to stay inside and play. Luckily, Dave & Buster’s Oakville has a wide selection of games to keep the kids and kids at heart entertained all day long. Not gung-ho about gaming? Sit back, relax and enjoy a meal at the bar or restaurant. Entertainment for all ages awaits!

Spring is about new beginnings, so why not try something new this March Break? The whole family can explore their adventurous side with indoor skydiving at iFLY Toronto. Not only is it fun and freeing; it’ll also give the kids a great story to tell when their teachers ask the inevitable question, “What did you do for March Break?”

 

5) Explore the Past at the Oakville Museum

While education may be the last thing on kids’ minds during the Break, a trip to the Oakville Museum offers much more than a simple history lesson. Featuring several exciting exhibits, March Break activities and a multimedia presentation on the Underground Railroad, this is the perfect place to explore the past in an entertaining way.

 

6) Playful Performances with a Family Focus

The Berenstain Bears

Though a week off may seem like the perfect opportunity to binge-watch TV shows, there are also family-friendly features in Oakville that offer an exciting alternative to a week of couch dwelling. For a mix of comedy and magic, check out Bumbling Bert’s Magic Show at the Oakville Public Library, or experience a classic children’s series come to life at The Berenstain Bears LIVE!. Either choice is sure to both entertain and amaze.

 

We hope this list gives you some interesting ideas for making the most of your March Break. Be sure to check our Events page for even more Oakville offerings this month!
