The Deeside area offers a wide range of familiar brand name shops and independent local stores with everything from outdoor clothing specialists to supermarkets and tattooists.
If you're after a break from the shopping then there is a great choice of coffee shops and cafes to watch the world go by from whilst enjoying a mug of something hot.
With a wide range of Welsh, English and international dishes, Deeside certainly has all bases covered when it comes to eating out. Fine dining, romantic meals for two or simply fish and chips on the park bench, whatever your preference you're bound to find the perfect place to spoil yourself.
The bridge that spans the Dee Estuary, linking the town of Flint with Connah's Quay, was opened by Queen Elizabeth in 1998 and is still known as the 'new bridge' by the locals. Officially it is the Flintshire Bridge and it’s Britain's largest irregular cable supported bridge, measuring almost 300 metres in length and more than 100 metres in height.
If you follow the bridge over the River Dee and into Connah's Quay you'll find Wepre Park which features castle ruins, waterfalls and a visitor centre set within a fantastic wooded area, perfect for a day out with the family.
Other outdoor activities in Deeside include: Greenacre Animal Park, the ice rink at Deeside Leisure Centre and the indoor go kart track at Sandycroft, which is one of the largest in the UK.
One of the best places to get closer to nature in Deeside is the nature reserve in Connah's Quay which has several open days throughout the year and provides opportunities to observe the birds and wildlife known to inhabit the grounds surrounding the local power station.
The RSPB own the salt marshes and adjacent river banks of the River Dee because these are known to attract a significant number of migrating and native birds. There are redshanks, oyster catchers and curlews, and you can watch them from the sanctity of a two tier bird hide which has been erected within the boundaries of the reserve.
Deeside is a blend of villages, towns and wide open green spaces with a good range of things to do for families and couples hoping to experience life on the banks of the River Dee. From canal walks and coastal strolls to inviting inns and cosy cafes, whatever you're hoping to find in North Wales, Deeside is the perfect place to relax, explore and discover.
