We all know how important it is to step away from our busy and often chaotic lives to rest and rejuvenate and most often this is associated with far off vacations and pricey accommodations. If you’re a student, this is nearly unachievable on a financial level and the time restrictions on when you can vacation make it difficult to justify booking a ticket. Snowbirds, more often than not, don’t have to battle with time constraints, but costly travel isn’t always appealing. That, and travelling is uncomfortable no matter what chapter of your life you’re in! But escaping from reality doesn’t have to be an expensive affair and you don’t have to travel hours to find it. Glennifer Lake resort is not only close by, but the amenities cater to all ages without breaking the bank. Here are a few reasons why students and snowbirds alike can find refuge at Glennifer Lake resort.
Close to home
Glennifer Lake is located in central Alberta and is an easy commute from any of Alberta’s major cities. From Red Deer it’s a quick 35 minute drive and folks from Calgary can make it in 75 minutes, while Edmonton is only a 2 hour road trip away. Why waste time and money flying when road trips are so much easier on a student budget? We Albertans are not unaccustomed to travelling by car and these speedy car rides to paradise are appealing when time is precious.
Summer is where it’s at
Escaping to the beach and spending time in the sunshine is summer living in a nutshell. Glennifer Lake boasts a beautiful beach and the water is clear, refreshing and algae free.

Spending time outdoors doesn’t have to be difficult when Glennifer Lake offers so much to do.
