Performing Arts Scene in Edmonton  (2 Answers)

I will be spending two weeks over the Christmas holiday with family in Edmonton and I would like to know if there is just one main website for performing arts events in the city. Like a one stop shop instead of Googling different theatres in the area. I would ask family directly but I am hoping to get tickets as a surprise. Thanks!

Edmonton Internation Airport  (7 Answers)

I have to wait for my flight that leaves at 6:40am.

I don't want to spend money on a hotel that I'll end up using for about 10 hours.

Would the airport staff find it odd that I'm waiting close to 7 hours in the airport for my flight to leave or they wouldn't mind?

Accommodation/Public Transport  (9 Answers)

I'm planning to go to Edmonton from May through September this year (best time of the year, eh?). Appreciate any advice/information on:-

1) The area around/near the Walter Mackenzie Health Sciences Centre of the University of Alberta - safe/dead/alive? ;-)

2) Availability of 4-5 months rental accommodation as close as possible to it - what might be the availability/going rate for a room (with a view?) in shared accommodation? How expensive is a one-bedroom apartment in that area?

3) Availability/efficiency of public transport in that area/Edmonton. I'd hate to have to get a car and drive on the right side of the road! :(

A week in Edmonton  (7 Answers)

My partner and I am hoping to be be given resident visas for Canada and have decided on Edmonton as our first choice for where to live.

We have booked a one week trip next May and would like some help in deciding how to best spend our time so that we see as much as the city and surrounding area as possible.

We both love nature/walking and looking at Edmonton we see lots of green :) I have read that Elk Island National Park is within easy reach to the east of the city and was wondering if people have ever used tour companies to visit as we do not plan to hire a car whilst we are in town.

I have read about the West Edmonton Mall and i think we shall take a trip here, mainly for the themepark as we enjoy rides etc.

As i have said i see lots of green around the river in the city. Can people suggest some good walks?

We shall also be having a look at different areas to live/cost/transport links etc so that if we are successful with our application we can move swiftly. Are there any areas in Edmonton that are to be avoided as I have looked at a few real estate websites and prices can vary across the city.

I am a mad sport fan, what sports are played in May?

Finally as we will be there is May, what can we expect weather wise?

Sorry for all the questions and i thank you for taking time to read and posing any replies.

Thank you

How far is it, is it a nice drive, is there much to see / do along the way, is there somewhere that is ideal for a one night stop along the way.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Need an idea  (2 Answers)

Hey all, it looks like I'll be heading up to Edmonton for a job interview, and may have time to kill. Now my buddies in Winnipeg tell me Whyte Ave is the place to go so I'll probably end up there. Here's the kicker, I might be moving there. Any advice on where would be a good place to live? I'm 35 Y/O (though for some reason people think I'm younger....must be the beer), I'm much more into the bar scene rather than clubbing, love my food, need to keep fit (living in Texas can make you fat. Trust me on this), and would rather run a few miles than chill in front of the tube. Any advice would be appreciated.

Cheers from a Canuck in Houston

Downtown !  (4 Answers)

Hi Everyone,

I have booked 3 days in Edmonton and this will be my first stop on my Canadian Trip in August.

The main reason for my trip is to visit the West Edmonton mall and as i understand the Bed and Breakfast i have booked into on 102nd street is only a 12 minute taxi ride away.

Just wondering, How big are the theme parks? Am i being unrealistic if i think i can get through the adventure park in a couple of hours? Or are they like the Disney Parks?

I was thinking i may have to skip the water park due to time restraints, What about the rest of the mall? is it worth a look through or do locals think it's a little overrated? I'm not really a big shopper but being there i think i will buy a few things.

I notice the guide books keep saying there's not much to see in downtown, Is that true? Can anyone give me ideas on what else besides the mall, 124th St shopping strip is a must see?

ANy info would be great!

edmonton restaurant suggestions  (2 Answers)

i'm looking for an unique, elegant, quiet (she's hard of hearing) restaurant to take an elderly person too. we live in edmonton so i'm quite familiar with the most popular ones. just wondered if anyone could recommend anything that maybe in their neighborhood that might not be well known. type of food doesn't really matter. decore, good food and good service. an example of the type of restaurant we really liked was the madison's grill. but, i would like something a little less expensive this time - entrees around20. any suggestions for some hidden gems. thanks.
