Edmonton vacation rentals

Get to grips with Edmonton

Edmonton has built its prosperity on oil and diamonds, while its reputation as ‘Canada’s Festival City’ ensures an equally glittering cultural and entertainment scene. The capital of Alberta combines big city buzz with a friendly down-home ambience that makes it a favorite destination for freewheeling family getaways, with a wide range of Edmonton vacation rentals complimenting the warm welcome. Nationally important museums and significant historical sites rub shoulders with colorful shopping malls and world-class sports stadiums, while the city’s carefully tended parks are famous for their diverse variety of trees.

Edmonton—a breath of fresh air

Edmontonians love getting out in the fresh air, and there are plenty of ways visitors can join in the fun. From golf to cross-country skiing, ice skating to picnicking, cycling to tobogganing, there are many opportunities to let off steam, whatever the season. The ‘River of Green’ that follows the North Saskatchewan River valley passes through downtown, with paved areas and trails that are accessible for young and old alike. If you’re lucky enough to book one of the Edmonton vacation rentals close to the gently meandering river, you can enjoy city living with nature on your doorstep.

Edmonton for culture lovers

Edmonton’s vibrant arts scene attracts culture lovers from far and wide. Churchill Square is the main setting for festivals and live events and also boasts many of the city’s most prestigious creative institutions. The Francis Winspear Centre for Music, home to the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, has been hailed as one of the most acoustically perfect concert halls in Canada. The Citadel Theatre is one of the largest complexes of its kind in the country, comprising 5 different performance spaces, while the Art Gallery of Alberta houses a permanent collection of major Canadian and international artworks in a flagship building.

Fringe Festival fun in Edmonton

Second only to Edinburgh, Edmonton throws one of the biggest Fringe Festivals on the planet. Spanning many dynamic days in August, it sees almost half a million people descend on Old Strathcona. Summer also brings other global events like the International Street Performers Festival. Hockey season runs from October to April, with Edmonton Oilers fans descending on the city. If you’re traveling as a group, Edmonton vacation rentals are the perfect way to keep your crew together.

A gateway to the Rockies

Surrounded by rolling hills, steep ravines, and deep river valleys, Edmonton is part of the Canadian Prairies Ecozone. It’s built on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River, which flows from Jasper’s mighty Columbia Icefield. The Canadian Rockies sit to the southwest, which makes Edmonton a popular stop-off point for travelers heading to Banff, Jasper, and beyond. It may be known as an oil and gas city, but Edmonton doesn’t scrimp on green space, with urban parkland lining either side of the river.
