More About The City

About Edmonton, AB

Alberta's capital, an inviting city located on the vast northern prairie, is both cosmopolitan and down-to-earth. From its early days as a fur-trading outpost, to its rise to prominence as a center for coal and oil, the city has been a mainstay in western Canada. As a result of the oil booms in the last century, Edmonton grew increasingly wealthy, and the money gave rise to a town of culture and sophistication. These days, oil-related technology businesses anchor the local economy, and the city is also home to Alberta's legislature. Downtown, the Arts District has a variety of cultural offerings; across the river, the Old Strathcona neighborhood features terrific shopping and entertainment options. Thanks to the North Saskatchewan River valley, which bisects the city, Edmonton also has a wealth of green space, popular for outdoor festivals and recreational activities.
Edmonton, AB Factoid
Edmonton loves hockey! And with a team like the Oilers to root for, that's no surprise. During the 1980s, the team won five Stanley Cups, and had hockey's "dream team," which included players Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Esa Tikkanen, Randy Gregg, Glenn Anderson and Paul Coffey. While not as dominant, today's Oilers have a massive fan base, and home games usually sell out.
