When it comes to attraction, Edmonton’s philosophy is go big or go home. Whether you’re a history buff, art lover, adrenaline junkie, or outdoor enthusiast, there is an Edmonton experience that speaks to you.
HIT THE TRAILS
These trails are perfect for jogging, cycling and nature enthusiasts. Run or stroll through the winding paths, be surrounded by wildlife and take in the beautiful views of the cityscape. For adrenaline junkies, choose to ride on the beaten path and pedal throughout the forest on a mountain bike.
Segway through Edmonton’s massive river valley park system, surf the prairies in one of the world’s biggest indoor waterparks at West Edmonton Mall or step back in time at Fort Edmonton Park, Canada’s largest living museum. More info: https://exploreedmonton.com/attractions/all
There is a reason Edmonton is known as “Canada’s Festival City.” With over 45 major festivals and events happening every year, there is never a shortage of activities for visitors to discover. From our International Fringe Theatre Festival, an annual celebration of live theatre that lives on the edge of the mainstream, to our homegrown Heritage Festival that brings together more than 85 cultures in a culmination of aromas, performances and international delicacies – there is something for everyone to fall in love with.
THE ICE DISTRICT
Canada’s largest mixed-use sports and entertainment district is taking shape in the heart of Edmonton. A dream nearly a decade in the making, ICE District’s development is fueled by the optimism of what Edmonton can be – a destination for people from all corners of the city, the country and the world. Twenty- five acres are currently under construction in the heart of Edmonton’s growing downtown. It’s a place to meet, a place to celebrate, and a place visitors will never forget.
