Keeping the kids happy and entertained is the key to a successful vacation - or daily life for that matter ;) - but parents won’t suffer any dull moments when following this fun-centric family plan!
The ULTIMATE Kids Guide
This guide has it all! From face painting to ice cream, we have scouted every last kids friendly activity you can imagine covering all seasons. Pick and choose your way around St. Thomas depending on the season and what the kids are feeling!
St. Thomas is the Railway City, but you don't have to be a history buff to appreciate our heritage. Take the kids to theElgin County Railway Museum to get the chance to get on some real-life trains. Or pop by the CASO Station and walk the halls of the largest train station of its kind left in North America.
It's never too early to develop an appreciation for the arts. Bring the kids to the St. Thomas Elgin Public Art Centre and check out rotating exhibits, and partake in a colouring activity while you are there!

Day 2 : Playgrounds, Splashpads and Trails, Oh My!
We have four distinct seasons here in St. Thomas - which means 4 ways to have fun! We've summed up some of the top outdoor spots for you to visit with the kids based on the season.
SPRING: Watch flowers bloom and go for a beautiful walk through the Waterworks Park water gardens.
FALL: The best time of year for trail-blazing with amazing Fall colours. Why not take a walk with the kids and see who can take the best Fall photo? There is an extensive trail network throughout St. Thomas. Stop by Railway City Tourism to pick up your trail map and be on your way - or download the map here!
