Our Top Tourism Picks

Edmonton City Centre is located in the heart of the downtown core and we are walking distance away from many of Edmonton’s prime attractions and festivals. Once you are done shopping, why not check out what downtown Edmonton has to offer? Below are some suggestions on what you can do and take in this season:

Art Gallery of Alberta – Visual art lovers will love the AGA with its collection of over 6,000 objects. The Art Gallery of Alberta presents both contemporary and historical exhibitions. If you are short on time, make sure you walk over just to see the magnificent building in itself; it’s a piece of art!

Alberta Legislature Building – This is a place for all ages; for visitors that appreciate architecture, history and politics. The legislature guides offer free interesting tours of the building. When you know everything there is to know about the inside of the Legislature, there is a visitor centre where you can take advantage of the free 4D cinema that teaches you about the history of Alberta in just 11 minutes! Or visit the gift shop that features art work of all price ranges from artists across the province. There is also free exhibits that change frequently and you can enjoy the grounds that are beautiful any time of the year.

River Valley – The Edmonton River Valley is located just south of downtown. You are minutes away from North America’s largest urban park! Have a short stroll, join Edmontonians on rigorous work outs on the many wooden stairs and enjoy the beautiful overlook view of Edmonton!
