Tis the season to celebrate with family and friends! While it’s the togetherness that really counts – you’re likely filling your calendar with festive events and list-checking shopping trips. With that in mind, Sylvan Lake is one of the best places to adventure to during the holiday season.
Winter fun, every day
Throughout the month of December, Sylvan Lake offers many things to see and do that will keep your Christmas spirits fueled up. Take a walk around town and be in owe of the beautiful light displays. If the conditions are right, head over to the lake for a skate on one of the two rinks. If the rinks aren’t skateable at the time of your visit, you can always skate inside at the local arena.
