Edmonton Travel Guide

Alberta's capital is often overlooked in favour of its flashier neighbour Calgary. Indeed, Edmonton has a small-town feel despite its million-plus inhabitants.

Ironically for a city set in such stunning natural surroundings, Edmonton is perhaps best known for the West Edmonton Mall: the largest shopping centre in North America. That said, Edmonton has other attractions, including Fort Edmonton Park, Canada's largest living history museum. The Alberta Railway Museum, the Telus World of Science, the Alberta Aviation Museum, and the Royal Alberta Museum are among the city's other museums.

Edmonton also has a rich cultural scene, with the Francis Winspear Centre for Music hosting the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. The Old Strathcona is home to a number of theatre groups, while the Edmonton International Fringe Festival is an incredible celebration of the arts. The city is home to a number of other festivals, including K-Days, the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, and the Canadian Finals Rodeo.
