We recently compiled a list of places to take your family around the Whitby area – now it’s Brampton’s turn! When the temperature starts to drop, it can be difficult to pull yourself out of full hibernation mode and find interesting things to do. We’re here to help you beat the winter blues and get your family out of the house.

Here are some great places where you can take them around Brampton this winter:

Head to the gallery.

You don’t have to go into Toronto to see great art! We’re lucky to have the Peel Art Gallery Museum & Archive nearby to check out some incredible artistic talent. You can browse their collection, check out an exhibition, and check out some of their programming! There are various program for both kids and adults so there is certainly a little something for everyone. You can keep up to date on their current exhibitions and programs over on their website.

Check out an escape game.

If the weather outside is frightful then an escape game will be quite delightful. Escape games are all the rage right now and it’s the perfect outing for your family if your kids are above the age of 10 or for you and your friends! If you want to get out of the house without having to really brave the great outdoors, this is perfect. You’re given a themed room and a plotline with the goal to escape. Working together to solve the obstacles and puzzles, you’ll put your brains to the test! It’s definitely a fun way to spend a few hours. Check out the different themed rooms and make your reservation over here.

Lace up your skates.

If you want to get outside, then obviously your best bet is to dust off your skates. Gage Park has one of the best skating rinks around! People come from all over to take advantage of the spot and there’s so much to love about the skating trail! They often have a DJ on weekends and there are also rentals available if you don’t have your own skates. For a full list of public outdoor skating rinks and their schedules, check the city’s website here.
