Edmonton is also a great stopover if you are en route to Jasper National Park (four hours drive west) or if you are off exploring the vast landscape to the north.

The downtown area has just been revitalised with Rogers Place recently opened in September 2016. It is mainly used for ice hockey, and for other indoor sports, but is also configurable as a venue for concerts or other events.

For the soul of the city, head south of the river to the university district and visit Whyte Ave in the neighbourhood of Old Strathcona, where historic buildings blend with youthful exuberance to make this one of Edmonton's trendiest neighbourhoods. The city's celebrated arts and cultural community makes its home here, as does a plethora of unique local boutiques, one-of-a-kind art galleries and music shops, and trendy restaurants and cafes.
