3 Reasons Glennifer Lake is ideal of Students and Snowbirds

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.

The amenities

Speaking of things to do, if being a beach bum isn’t your cup of tea, Glennifer Lake has so many other options for you.  Snowbirds love their golf, but students also take advantage of the 9-hole course and putting greens and can sometimes give the snowbirds a run for their money!  After a challenging game, take a dip and relax in the hot tub or go for a swim in the indoor or outdoor pools.  The fully licensed restaurant and lounge on site is a wonderful place to kick back after a long day of vacationing.  And the best part about all of this?  Glennifer Lake is a year round resort that offers it’s amenities no matter the season.  So whether you’re looking for something to do over reading week or there’s a free weekend on your calendar in July, Glennifer Lake is the closest little piece of paradise you’ll find.
