For me home is Edmonton, Alberta, a place that I believe is extremely under rated when it comes to Canadian Cities. Everyone always talks about the Rocky Mountains when referring to Alberta, and don’t get me wrong, I love the mountains but we have so much more to offer than just beautiful scenery! Below I have listed my top 5 favourite things about Edmonton
The Hotel Macdonald is a landmark for Edmonton, standing proudly in the heart of the city since 1915. It features a beautiful garden in the back of the hotel with an amazing view of the North Saskatchewan River and features a restaurant that offers a delicious brunch.
If you ever visit Edmonton you must pop by Duchess Bake Shop to taste some of their amazing pastries. Every Edmonton native knows that if you want to treat yourself to a little something sweet, Duchess Bake Shop is the place to go! I highly suggest trying their Ginger Cookie and Hot Chocolate!
Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, Hawrelak Park offers an amazing escape from the city. Situated in Edmonton’s River Valley the park features an open grassy area, home to many festivals and events throughout the year, and a lake which offers paddle boating in the summer and skating in the winter.
The West Edmonton Mall features not only countless stores, but also hosts a fully operating amusement park, ice rink, water park and a marine life show where you can pay to get a picture taken with a cute sea lion.
You want a good cup of coffee with aesthetically pleasing latte art? Look no further than Credo Coffee House! Featuring great atmosphere in an upbeat and urban section of Edmonton, Credo Coffee offer delicious Lattes, Mocha’s and Hot Chocolates all with Instagram worthy latte art.
I hope that you enjoyed reading this post and learning a little bit more about my home town! If you are looking for a place to visit this summer look no further than Edmonton, Alberta. We may not look like much, but we have a lot to offer!
