Last Call for Summer!

Last Call for Summer

Last Call for Summer! Take in the Adventures of Summer While You Can!

Go on a Last Call for Summer Adventure where you can experience Eastern Manitoba fun like beaches, Farmer’s Markets, water parks, flower farms, museums, and more!

Well, folks, summer will soon come to a close. In a few weeks, kids will start the school year, the lavish green leaves will change to the vibrant fall colours of browns, oranges, and yellows, and the hot summer air will grow crisp and cool.

But don’t fret! In Manitoba, each season brings new opportunities, adventures, and fun! But with that being said, there is still time to enjoy summer, to have one last summer hooray before the Fall season. It’s time to have a Last Call for Summer Adventure, where you can experience all your favourite summer activities. Go out paddling, enjoy the trails in all their summer galore, visit your favourite ice cream shop, and have a farewell-for-now tour dedicated to summer adventures.

You may already have some ideas of how you will say goodbye to summer, but here are some activities that Eastman will surely miss and eagerly be waiting for during the cooler months.

Beaches

Perhaps the most obvious activity that we will soon be saying farewell to is beach days. So, for your last call for summer adventure, hit some of Eastern Manitoba’s beaches and enjoy the simple pleasure of beach activities. Finish off that summer tan you’ve been working on, grab the kids and build a sandcastle, enjoy swimming and splashing, or even sit back and relax while watching the sunset over the water.

There are a lot of beaches to choose from in Eastern Manitoba, but any one of them promises a day of fun and happy, summery memories that will help keep you warm during the soon-to-come winter months. Here’s a shortlist of beaches in Eastman to help narrow down your options:

Hoopla Island (Pinawa)

Have you experienced Eastern Manitoba’s newest and coolest attraction? Even if you have, visiting Hoopla Island is a great way to celebrate the last call for summer while enjoying this great activity with your family or friends!

This giant floating water park attraction has jumps, slides, climbing walls, swings, trampolines and more that promises a splashtastic good time while unleashing your inner child! Don’t worry about being graceful or even staying on these floatable structures because half the fun is slipping and falling, splashing and dunking, and just, in general, getting wet and having a great time.
