Things to Do in Fort McMurray

By The A-Team | Nov 08, 2017 | Fort McMurray- Buyers Advice

It’s that time of year again! Jack Frost is nipping at your nose, and as temperatures drop, often so does morale. It is no secret: Fort McMurray winters can be long and harsh, it can often lead to people feeling like they are going to spend their unforeseen future reclused in their home bundled away from -40 and lack of sunlight. A fear of boredom and anti-socialism sets in. The truth is, it doesn’t have to! Fort McMurray is chock full of amazing sports, hobbies, clubs and social gatherings for kids and adults alike. I have lived here collectively for over a decade, and I still find myself learning about awesome new activities all the time!

As a buyer’s specialist on The A-Team, I am often asked by people considering the move to Fort McMurray, and even by those who already live in and love Fort McMurray, this question: “What exactly is there to do around here?!”

So, here is the bad news: there are so many things to do in Fort McMurray that I may have missed some. Now the good news: there are even more things to do in Fort McMurray than I have listed below! :) If YOU know something great, feel free to comment below or let us know!
