Visit museums, enjoy the nightlife, and cheer on the Oilers
You’ll find everything from cultural attractions to big city fun in Alberta’s capital—situated on the North Saskatchewan River. Learn about indigenous history and check out the bug gallery at the Royal Alberta Museum, admire works from Canadian artists at the Art Gallery of Alberta, and spot bison on a hike through scenic Elk Island National Park. Book a ride aboard the early 1900s High Level Bridge Streetcar, visit the living history museum at Fort Edmonton Park, and enjoy the boutiques and bars along trendy Whyte Avenue. Hockey fans will want to watch an Oilers game at Rogers Place while shopping enthusiasts can hit the stores at South Edmonton Common or West Edmonton Mall—North America’s largest mall and home to theme parks, a mini-golf course, and ice palace. You can also place bets at Century Mill Racetrack and Casino, schuss down the slopes at Snow Valley, and catch annual festivals like A Taste of Edmonton and Edmonton International Fringe Festival.
