Edmonton is Canada’s second most populous provincial capital (after Toronto) and is a cultural, governmental, and educational center. It plays host to a year-round slate of world-class festivals, earning it the title of “The Festival City,” and it is also home to North America’s largest mall. Edmonton’s thriving arts & culture scene boasts everything a major metropolis should offer: galleries, museums, live theatre, concerts, opera, and ballet.

Here are some itinerary suggestions for your trip to Edmonton:

Area Attractions:

The West Edmonton Mall boasts more than 800 stores and employs more than 23,000 people. Visitors will be overwhelmed with all the mall has to offer: the world’s largest indoor amusement park, a five-acre waterpark, an 18-hole miniature golf course, an indoor lake, a National Hockey League sized ice rink, and much, much more!

The Muttart Conservatory is set in Edmonton’s lush river valley. Four huge, glass pyramids make up the conservatory, and it is home to thousands of species of plants, both domestic and exotic. There is The Tropical Pyramid, The Temperate Pyramid, The Arid Pyramid, and The Show Pyramid, which is completely changed six times a year.

The Provincial Museum is one of Canada’s most popular museums. Set in a park just west of downtown, the Museum offers a full range of exhibitions and activities for every age level and interest.

Fort Edmonton Park is North America’s largest interactive historic park. Go back in time as you walk through four historical periods – costumed interpreters bring the past to life, answer your questions, and invite you to experience the best of the period. Take a ride on a steam train, play pioneer games, bake bread the old-fashioned way, shop, or hit the midway for rides and games.

The Edmonton Queen Riverboat is a unique attraction in the heart of downtown Edmonton. It offers a unique experience, a relaxing atmosphere, and one of the most picturesque views of the city and the beautiful River Valley.
