Things to do in Edmonton over a Winter Weekend

Let's face it. Winters are long in Canada. To survive them - and actually enjoy a winter I think you need lots of things to look forward to - like mini vacation breaks to the mountains and/or to cities you perhaps don't know much about. Over a January winter weekend John and I immersed ourselves in activities in and around Edmonton. You'd be amazed at the diversity of things to do in Edmonton and how much fun…

Why You’ll Want to See Edmonton by Bike

Visiting Edmonton? What better way to see the city - in my opinion - than on the back of a bike. You can rent a bike from River Valley Adventure centrally located just below the Shaw Conference Centre beside the North Saskatchewan River. Not only do they have everything you'll need including helmets, locks, water and snacks (delicious baked goods!) - they have loads of suggestions on where to bike depending on what kind of experience you're after. Don't forget to ask…

My trip to Elk Island National Park made me think of a time when our family traveled to Yellowstone National Park…

What to do on a Weekend Getaway in Edmonton, Alberta

For this Calgarian, Edmonton is not the first place I think of for a weekend getaway. But my misconceptions about the city were rocked over three days as I discovered a multitude of great restaurants, shopping, culture and things to do. Edmonton is home to over 30 annual festivals - so plan a weekend getaway around a festival or event you'd like to attend. I had come for the Red Bull Crashed Ice Event -…

26 Weird, Wonderful and Useful Facts About Edmonton

Edmonton is the provincial capital of Alberta and not a place I knew much about until I started researching for this blog. I thought of it as a city with nothing but big box stores, because that's all I'd ever seen as I drove through. And I knew it was bloody cold in the winter. But now I've been to the city on numerous occasions and love what it has to offer - especially the…
