Looking for something fun to do this weekend then why not book yourself a staycation at one of our incredible Red Deer and area hotels. Places like the Holiday Inn & Suites Red Deer South located in Gasoline Alley is your one-stop staycation location. With an in-house restaurant and swimming pool (and waterslide) you have a good start to your getaway.
If your canine sidekick is accompanying you, then places like the Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham are happy to accommodate your furry friend. Be sure to book ahead, as they only have a limited number of pet rooms available.
The Gasoline Alley Farmers Market is close by and hosts a fantastic collection of local businesses and producers. Here you can visit DNA Gardens and Our Roots Estate Winery for some wonderful fruit wines, preserves, fruit pies and more.
If the sun is shining, enjoy the Market’s outdoor patio and pick up some lunch from Taco Monster, their tacos are anything but traditional and always delicious, give their Spicy Drunken Chicken taco a try!
Wash it all down with a beverage from Craft Beer Commonwealth or Troubled Monk, then grab a six-pack to take back to your room. Oh, and don’t forget some craft soda for the kids! Troubled Monk flavours include Root Beer, Ginger Ale, Orange or try their Saskatoon, so refreshing.
If their name isn’t enough to intrigue you, then you need to stop in at Sweet Market Esso. Close by and a fun experience for the kids (or kids at heart) with a huge selection of candy and snacks to choose from, you will likely be back to top of your stash. (Continued below…)
Find the Cambridge Red Deer Hotel and Conference Centre centrally located and close to everything there is to see and do. Surrounded by wonderful restaurants like Bo’s Bar & Stage and close to a variety of shopping including the Parkland Mall. You will even find easy access to over 100 km of City trails just outback of the property.
Perhaps it’s time for mom and dad to get away and leave the teenagers at home. Book a night in one of the Jacuzzi Suites at the Radisson Hotel Red Deer, because everyone needs pampering now and then. Enjoy a spa treatment at their onsite Damara Day Spa, then continue the relaxation by letting someone else do the cooking and indulge in some delivery right to your room.
TownePlace Suites by Marriott is another staycation favourite with spacious suites, full kitchens, and their fitness area and pool are available for private bookings. They are a great home base for your daytime adventures, head out on a scenic drive to the West Country for some sightseeing and hiking or perhaps a picnic.
Then it’s back to the hotel for a private swim and to ponder which restaurant you are going to order some takeout from. With so many superb restaurants to choose from any choice is a good one, Cilantro & Chive has a fun and trendy menu with tasty drinks to match, they also have a nice patio to enjoy for a change of scenery.
The Baymont by Wyndham Red Deer is another great place to stay, located right downtown it is perfect for the traveler who likes to walk. You can visit the local shops and restaurants or maybe take a walking tour of the Ghosts of Red Deer.
