Costco and IKEA, then chill out at the beach

Ever thought about combining a shopping expedition with a mini break?

A weekend (or even weeknight) at the beach is the perfect way to de-stress before, during or after searching for your dream kitchen at IKEA or stocking up on bulk household items at Costco.

Costco North Lakes and IKEA North Lakes are about 15 kilometres (that’s about a 20-minute drive) to the calm sandy beaches of Scarborough on the Redcliffe Peninsula.

After a day spent dragging the kids from pillar to post in the quest to find a comfy couch or going through the exhausting process of shopping for life’s necessities, a night at a family- friendly resort directly opposite the beach is the ideal solution to shopping burn-out.

If you’re coming from out of town, it makes perfect sense to end a hectic day with a mindful stroll along the beach followed by a spa and sauna at Scarborough Beach Resort.

If retail therapy is your thing, there’s the option of heading back along the Bruce the next day for another dose. Unless, that is, you decide to linger longer!
