Estevan is the perfect place for a family-friendly February escape. You can spend the day exploring hands-on exhibits at the museum, ice fishing on our nearby lakes, exploring the play place in the core of the city, and so much more. Here are a few of the top things to do during the February break-in Estevan.

Souris Valley Museum
Explore the secrets of pioneer history at the Souris Valley Museum. As you enter, you’ll be surrounded by buffalo hides, arrowheads and tools indigenous people used in day-to-day life. Then head to one of the day camps where young people learn about folklore, using historical items and way of life in the pioneer age. Don’t miss the outbuildings where a fully-equipped schoolhouse stands. Sit down, write on the tablet and even wear the dunce hat!
Estevan Bowl is a favourite spot for families. Competitions abound for sports lovers, where they can play either a ten-pin or five-pin round. Don’t forget to try the fantastic Pizza and appetizer lineup that the kitchen serves. One of the most popular nights is glow bowling. We recommend dressing in white or fluorescent colours. The brighter, the better to really stand out!
RM of Estevan Aquatic Centre
Spend the afternoon at the centre of it all, the RM of Estevan Aquatic Centre. The Aquatic Centre is one of the best places for kids to burn off that pent-up energy! Zip down the waterslide, cannonball off the diving board and soak in the hot tub. Kids and parents love to tackle the Wii bit obstacle course too!
After a great meal out, catch a show in the state-of-the-art Orpheum Theatre. Lay your chair back, throw on those 3d glasses and dig into a bucket of fresh buttered popcorn while being immersed in the best blockbuster movies. Or take a trip down memory lane and let your littles experience a classic film. Back to the Future, anyone?!
Energy Outlet Indoor Play Zone
Let the kids run free in the downtowns indoor playground. This fun play place features tube slides, suspension bridges, a ball pit, and plenty of nooks and crannies to hide in for a game of Hide and Seek. They even have sleep overnights where you can rent the space and host an epic sleepover.
