Hi Breanna. 

Edinburgh is a beautiful city and is surrounded by some amazing countryside. 

My suggestions would be to walk The Royal Mile up to Edinburgh Castle, climb Arthur's Seatwhich is an easy 20-30 minutes walk, take a tour of the Underground Nation, the The Scotch Whisky Experience is interesting if your into tastings, try some haggis (it's not that bad) and take a day trip out into the Scottish Highland Trails. Highly recommend Rabbies tours as they are small group and charismatic guides. 

Have a blast and hope this has been helpful.

What are your interests? Edinburgh has it all.

Excellent Art Galleries, a castle, a palace, a zoo, ghost tours......

Make a list of your Must Sees (use a guide book or internet) and then look at a map to plan route. Most things are on the  Royal Mile or just off it. Or on Princes St. The Royal Yacht Britannia is a bus ride away.

I enjoyed the Castle (you can spend a lot of time here if it captures your interest). Art Gallery,Gladstone's Land, The Queen's Gallery, Palace of Holyroodhouse(Holyrood Palace was closed). Didn't eat anything fancy. Two pubs, The Worlds End and The White Horse Bar, both on Royal Mile.

Tourist places close early, 5:30ish, even when the sun is shining at 10pm.
