Known as Canada's Festival City, Edmonton hosts more than 30 established festivals each year, including the internationally renowned folk, fringe and street performance fests, so consider “bored” a thing of the past.
Whether you’re here for a short term rental or longer term relocation, your stay in Edmonton would not be complete without a visit to the massive, world-renowned West Edmonton Mall, home to more than 800 stores and services, including nine world-class attractions, two hotels, over 100 dining venues, and the widest variety of one-of-a-kind retailers. But, oh no, that's not all. You’ll also find an indoor water park, an amusement park, mini golf course, ice skating rink and three sea lions!
For those of you looking to stretch your legs and enjoy some fresh air, you're in luck. Edmonton offers the longest stretch of urban parkland in North America! Spend a day at any of the city's 22 major municipal parks, exploring the Saskatchewan River Valley by bike, boat or foot. Or, make the drive to Alberta's Jasper National Park, where you'll discover the beautiful Canadian Rockies – home to fantastic sports and scenery every season of the year.
You’ll also want to pay a visit to the Strathcona Farmer’s Market with over 300 vendors through 185 stalls where on Saturdays they boast up to 130 vendors offering only locally produced, handmade products; the perfect place to inspire you to make the very most of your fully equipped kitchen!
