Edmonton: Alberta's Provincial Capital
Edmonton is our provincial capital. The legislature overlooks the scenic river valley. With a population of over one million in the Edmonton Metropolitan Area, the economy is diverse. So are the city's attractions.
The West Edmonton Mall, Telus World of Science, Royal Alberta Museum, Fort Edmonton Park, the Art Gallery of Alberta, the Edmonton Valley Zoo and the Muttart Conservatory (re-opening in 2021) are all great places to visit. Alberta's capital is also known for its vibrant music scene. You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out.
Yes, it gets cold here in the winter, but we know how to make the most of it! Edmonton has some spectacular winter festivals, as well as skating and snowshoeing trails and ski hills. Our summers are warm and dry, and we get plenty of sunlight year-round.
