Edmonton is the hardy capital of Alberta. It’s often given a fleeting glance by travellers on their way to the national parks of Elk Island and Jasper. But crack the (often frozen) surface of the city, and you’ll find an art scene that ticks off galleries and a world-class festival. Plus, it’s home to the biggest mall in North America – the supermassive West Edmonton Mall.

Edmonton winters rarely get above freezing, so many of the city’s best bits are tucked away inside. The Muttart Conservatory raises tropical plants by the North Saskatchewan River, while the kid-pleasing Telus World of Science makes itself at home in Coronation Park. Then there’s the West Edmonton Mall – a mammoth shopping centre with a theme park and waterpark.
Some great architecture is squirrelled away between the skyscrapers, too. The Alberta Legislature Building is a marble and wood Beaux-Arts number. Alternatively, check out the Space Age waves of the Art Gallery of Alberta.
