Old Strathcona Farmers' Market Whyte Avenue Review

The Farmers' Market comes to life every Saturday, when more than 130 vendors set up their little shops to sell garden products, arts & crafts, baked goods, meat products, preserved products and more. It's impossible to leave this place empty handed - there are so many good products and it's pretty easy to get a good deal. Open year round!

Edmonton City Hall Downtown Review

Visitors usually stop by City Hall to admire the building's interesting modern architecture and its great art collection, or to cool off in the reflective pool on a hot summer day. There's always something going on in or around City Hall and tours are free, so enjoy!

Fort Edmonton Park Fort Edmonton Review

Fort Edmonton is a huge historic park that recreates life in Edmonton from the early beginnings of Fort Edmonton (1846) to the early 20th century. You can easily spend an entire day going from one historic building to the next located on three streets recreating the city in 1885, 1905 and 1920.

Kids enjoying an afternoon at Rutherford House - Edmonton

Kids enjoying an afternoon at Rutherford House

Rutherford House Rutherford House Review

This house built in 1915 was the home of Alberta's first premier, Alexander Rutherford.

Costumed tour guides recreate daily, turn-of-the-century household activities, help you discover the life of the Rutherford family and trace back the history of this house that was at one point home to one of U of A's fraternities.

Special events include group activities for kids and Murder Mystery evenings, which can take on a whole new meaning in this house supposed to be haunted by the ghost of Lady Rutherford.

Dolphin show at West Edmonton Mall - Edmonton

Dolphin show at West Edmonton Mall

West Edmonton Mall West Edmonton Mall Review

Definitely more than just a mall! There is so much to do at WEM, it's the ideal place to go on a cold or rainy day - you can try one of the 25 rides at Galaxy Land (the Mindbender rollercoaster is my favorite), go for a splash at the indoor World Waterpark, go on board a submarine, skate at the Ice Palace, go bowling at Red's and much more!

Address: #2472, 8882 - 170 Street

Directions: Use the mapquest link on WEM's website

Alberta Legislature building - Edmonton

Alberta Legislature building

Tour the Legislature building and grounds Parliament Buildings Review

Legislature Building tours are fun and free! Learn about the political history of Alberta and some of the (amusing) British traditions that are still part of our official ceremonies nowadays. Also, ask you tour guide to show you the spooky portraits of King George V and his wife, and don't miss the magic spot on the fifth floor!!

During summer, kids can play in the pool in front of the building.

Elk Island National Park Elk Island National Park Review

Elk Island National Park is located less than an hour away from Edmonton so if you don't have enough time to make it to Jasper, this great park is the ideal place to go for hiking, canoeing, picnicking or camping. Also, you can be sure that some bison, wood bison, moose, deer and elk specimens will greet you right at the park's entrance!
