The Suiteness Guide to Edmonton
Often hailed as one of the great cultural capitals of Canada, Edmonton is a vibrant and sophisticated city with no shortage of activities and festivals in which to partake. Downtown’s Art District and Whyte Avenue are home to a wide variety of theaters and concert halls which provide the core of the city’s vibrant nightlife while Churchill Square hosts a plethora of annual festivals which contribute to Edmonton’s nickname “Canada’s Festival City.” As Alberta’s capital, Edmonton is also home to many museums including the Royal Alberta Museum, Fort Edmonton Park, and the well-renowned Art Gallery of Alberta.
With a population of over one million in the metropolitan area, Edmonton also houses a large number of businesses and, perhaps most famously, North America’s largest shopping mall, West Edmonton Mall. A number of large businesses reside within the Edmonton Metropolitan area, the majority of which are in either the oil industry or northern Canada’s rich diamond industry. More than just a big city, however, Edmonton sits on the North Saskatchewan River and provides miles and miles of lovely riverfront parks and recreation areas which allow you to escape the big city while remaining in its very heart.
No matter your reasons for visiting Edmonton, whether as a business traveler, sightseer, or culture-lover, let Suiteness help you create your ideal stay so you can relax and enjoy your trip.
