1. Shop to Your Heart’s Content

One of the best features of Manning Village is it’s within walking distance to the Manning Town Centre. This open-air shopping area includes many popular stores. You can pick up some things for your home at Lowes, a new dress at Marshalls, or other necessities at Canadian Tire. Once you’re ready for a break, you can grab a quick bite to eat at any of a variety of restaurants – Subway, Opa!, Edo Japan, or Boston Pizza. Though you can easily walk there, you might want to bring the car to carry your shopping bags home.

2. Catch the Latest Blockbusters

The Cineplex Cinema is also found in the Manning Town Centre area. They play current movies and occasionally have special events. What’s especially nice about this theatre is it tends to be less busy than the Cineplex at West Edmonton Mall. The lines aren’t as long and the theatres aren’t as crowded. It’s clean and the seats are comfy. If you’re ready to see the latest movies, this is the right theatre for you.

3. Make a Great Escape 

Escape rooms are the latest trends in family entertainment, and there are a few located around Manning Village. The idea behind these places is you’re locked in a room with a few clues to help you get out. You then solve puzzles to find more clues – all while racing against a clock. Sometimes you’re only in the room with your own group, but sometimes you get matched up with others who want to play. Themed rooms make the experience more fun. Check out Time Escape EdmontonGTFO Escape Entertainment, or Logic Lock. All of these are a short drive away.
