Exciting Activities for Mom and Kids on Spring Break in White Rock, BC
Watching movies over spring break is not the most exciting thing to do for kids and parents these days. Instead of everyday entertainment, spruce up your break in White Rock by checking out some of the coolest places in town. You’ll make memories that will last for years and score plenty of awesome pictures to share with your friends.
White Rock is home to a plethora of parks and trails. While you’re with your family, consider heading outdoors and spending some time together with no devices — or use your favorite app to hike in augmented reality! The beautiful outdoor environment of British Columbia is especially beautiful in White Rock, so you will have lots of things to look at and talk about.
Locals each have their favorite trail. Some prefer Serpentine Fen, a gigantic natural sanctuary with more than 3 km of picturesque trails along the Serpentine river. Others love Blackie Spit Park, with wonderful views of Boundary Bay, long sandy spits and a canine-friendly environment that lets your furry family members get in on the fun. If you’re after a simple forest walk, consider Sunnyside Acres or Redwood Park, each of which offers some quiet seclusion among the trees. Redwood Park also has playgrounds strategically placed in order to keep smaller children from getting too bored. Finally, if you want incredible views of the ocean (or lots of cardio), 1001 Steps will place you in an incredibly scenic enclave that’s ripe for sharing on social media.

If you’re after something more intense, Spin House is a leading cycling studio in South Surrey that’s renowned for its phenomenal instructors. Spin House offers riders a unique environment fueled by nightclub lights, invigorating beats, and energetic leaders. When you’re ready to recharge, there’s a juice bar right in the studio that offers both nutritionist-recommended smoothies and fresh juice, pressed from locally grown lower-mainland fruits, veggies, and greens.
The combination of all of these things makes Spin House a welcome treat in the routine of exercise-loving locals. It’s the perfect way to have fun while burning lots of calories in a jiffy. The 1000-bulb LED monstrosity provides plenty of atmospheric intensity, but it’s the incredible energy of the instructors and other class participants that will really help you give it your all and get the most out of your session.
You can take older kids into spin class with you, giving them a safe outlet for their youthful energy – The age restriction is 12 years old with a 4’2” height requirement. For younger kids, Spin House offers in-house child minding, enabling you to take a break for a bit while you enjoy a righteous ride to some bumpin’ beats.
