Canada's Festival City

Though it suffers from frigid temperatures for much of the year, Edmonton offers a range of tourist activities for all four seasons. Annual festivals and open-air concerts remain among the major reasons to take a trip to Edmonton during the warm months, while snow sports draw thousands of visitors during the winter. Year-round indoor activities include shopping, dining, and museum hopping. Edmonton also provides an ideal base for exploring the wider region, which includes two major national parks with impressive natural scenery throughout the year. If you prefer urban settings, visit the national parks on day trips and spend the rest of your time getting the feel for the city at the university district, offering live music, live theater, and eclectic shopping options. To arrange what you want to do in Edmonton, use our Canada travel itinerary planner.

Where to stay in Edmonton

For access to the best entertainment options and proximity to the North Saskatchewan River and the parks surrounding it, you can't beat Downtown's accommodations. Look near the intersection of Jasper Avenue and 100 Street NW--you'll be right next to Central metro station and just a few minutes' walk from the riverside park. If you're after nightlife and cafe culture, look south of the river in Strathcona, or in the neighboring student hub of Garneau. You can also choose from a large selection of accommodations farther out in West Edmonton.
