When it rains, it pours. You may have heard this saying before, but perhaps it's only becoming more obvious on those rainy days when it seems there's nothing to take your mind off the poor weather outside. But don't worry; if you happen to be a local of Sherwood Park, there are plenty of fun indoor activities in your very own neighbourhood that will take your mind off the outdoor fun you're missing. Here are some of the best ways to spend your rainy day in Sherwood Park.
You've been putting off your obligations to go shopping, and, whether it's for your kids or for yourself, there's surely something you're in need of. A rainy day is the perfect opportunity to finally take yourself on that shopping spree you've been neglecting for so long, so take up the opportunity while you can. Sherwood Park Mall awaits you on a rainy day, and has a long list of apparel shops, home and décor stores, and health and beauty outlets. You can make a day of it by starting with breakfast or lunch at one of the restaurants here, such as Albert's Family Restaurant or Montana's Cookhouse Saloon.
If the kids are bored on this rainy day, there's no reason why your fun rainy day activity can't involve water in another form. Why not take them to the wave pool at Millennium Place? Here you'll find the most exciting form of water, with plenty of slides, as well as a lap pool and whirlpool. Located at 2000 Premier Way, Millennium Place might just be the ultimate recreation centre, with opportunities for dry activities, too. Stay dry on the rainy day and opt for a day of fitness in the gym, or take up some sports in the indoor gymnasium.
On a rainy day, sometimes you just want to relax and watch a movie. Staying inside your own home, however, might not quite provide the excitement you and your family crave, regardless of the whether. So make it a true cinematic adventure and go to the movies. Galaxy Cinemas Sherwood Park is located near Sherwood Park Mall. You can opt to catch a Real3D 3D movie or just watch a regular box office hit with a bag of popcorn. Galaxy Cinemas is conveniently located at 2020 Sherwood Drive.
Regardless of what you choose, you might just find that when it rains, it pours happiness! Take the opportunity to connect with your family and spend some quality time with your children, your companion, or just yourself, and make the most of your rainy day. Whether you decide on some physical activity, a little shopping to lift your spirits, or a good old movie for some rainy day entertainment, you might just decide that when living in Sherwood Park, rainy days aren't so bad after all.
