Looking for a good day trip in August? To Do Canada is another great website with many ideas to help plan your summer days. For example, their list of 15 Provincial Park Daytrips from Edmonton includes recommendations such as Aspen Beach (on Gull Lake), Coal Lake (with a 5km loop trail nearby) or Thunder Lake (with a farmers’ market on Saturdays). They have descriptions of each recommended park, and each park provides day use picnic areas, places to explore, and a variety of ways to get around once you are there – boat, bike or on foot.
