Edmonton is a riverfront city on the North Saskatchewan River, attracting nature lovers with more than 20 parks and countless miles of hiking trails within the river valley. Getting around downtown Edmonton is convenient thanks to its indoor/outdoor walkway system. Called the pedway, it interlinks over 180 shops and stores across the city center. Prominent landmarks you should visit include Royal Alberta Museum, Winspear Center, Oblats Maison Provinciale, and the River Valley Victoria Park.

The capital of Alberta is also known for its annual festivities, including Edmonton Folk Music Festival and North America’s largest Fringe Festival. Take a daytrip to the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village, which showcases the lives of early Ukrainian Canadian settlers through story-telling, cultural shows, and demonstrations.
