Once famous for only its massive shopping mall, the city of Edmonton is now a star on the Canadian arts and culture scene. While the famous West Edmonton Mall—once the world’s largest shopping centre—is quite a site to behold with its indoor amusement park, water pool park, and hundreds of shops, the city offers many other gems to be discovered. Edmonton holidays set the scene for relaxation and enjoyment with modern city amenities and historic sites that take visitors back to a simpler time.
Planning holidays in Edmonton
Edmonton is the capital of the province of Alberta and is located about 400 miles north of the Canada-USA border. The city offers good access to public transportation, but car rental is recommended to make the most of out of Edmonton holidays. Travel is recommended between the months of April and October when holiday-makers can enjoy the warmer temperatures and blue skies of the prairies. Daily flights operate between the Edmonton International Airport and London Heathrow between April and December.
Highlights of Edmonton holidays
Not to be missed during Edmonton holidays is an exploration of its stunning river valley. The city has nearly 100 miles of well-maintained multi-use pathways, making the city ideal for walking and biking holidays. White Avenue is one of the country’s most impressive locations for nightlife and holiday-makers can enjoy tasting the locally crafted beer alongside the city’s many university students.
For a taste of life as a Canadian pioneer, enjoy a visit to Fort Edmonton where houses and shops have been preserved to look as they would have done in the 19th century. Those visiting during the summer months will be lucky enough to experience several of Edmonton’s festivals such as the Folk Music Festival and Klondike Days, Edmonton’s largest fair that provides entertainment for children and adults alike.
