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.

Edmonton’s winter wonderland

Edmonton’s long, hot summers and cold winters are bookended by relatively short spring and fall seasons. July is statistically the hottest and wettest month of the year, while temperatures often plummet into minus figures between November and March. Snow and ice are no deterrent to having fun, however—when the city freezes, the locals simply reach for their skis. Winter sports fans will appreciate the home comforts of Edmonton vacation rentals with cozy fires and hot tubs to greet them at the end of an active day on the slopes.

Discover the wild side of Edmonton

You won’t have to leave Edmonton’s city limits to discover its wild side. With almost 4,000 hectares of protected natural areas, this is one metropolis that takes its commitment to conserving the region’s biodiversity very seriously—even the downtown area is teeming with wildlife, thanks to its abundant green spaces, parks, and wetlands. During their stay, visitors can count on seeing everything from coyotes and skunks to inquisitive raccoons and shy deer. You might even hear the low hoot of a great horned owl or the cheerful chirrup of a cricket as you relax on the balcony of your downtown Edmonton vacation rental.
