One of Canada's largest cities, Edmonton is at the heart of the North Saskatchewan River region in Alberta province. The city is an ideal base for exploring the surrounding region. The attractions are spread out and it is better to rent your own vehicle to wander at will. An RV rental gives that much more freedom and the opportunity of spending time in the great outdoors at national parks such as Elk Island and Jasper.
Edmonton is a fun and vibrant city. It celebrates around 30 different festivals and events annually with ones such as K-Days (once known as Klondike Days) and the Canadian Finals Rodeo pulling in visitors in the hundreds of thousands. The flat prairie land surrounding the city is dotted with a great assortment of museums and heritage sites.
A collection of parks spreads along the city's main waterways and for the golf enthusiast there are several courses. Edmonton is a year-round sporting destination with hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing among options. Elk Island is just over one hour's drive from Edmonton and gives a taster before heading off to more distant destinations in the Rockies.
Churchill Square is the hub of Edmonton's downtown and many of the annual festivals are staged here. Institutions such as the Art Gallery of Alberta are either facing the square or nearby. The Loyal Edmonton Regiment Museum is a little north and the Alberta Aviation Museum is housed in a hangar at the airport. Across the North Saskatchewan River, Henrietta Louise Edwards Park is a pastoral spot to relax and watch the world go by.
On the outer edges of the city, the Alberta Railway Museum is a major attraction during the warmer months and is home to a superb collection of locomotives, rolling stock and railroad memorabilia. The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village focuses on the early lives of the pioneers from the European nation with authentic buildings and artefacts. It is near to Elk Island National Park
Fort Edmonton Park is closer to town and a living history museum that celebrates local history. This facility is divided into four zones each of which is themed on different eras of history. Interpreters dressed in period costumes, such as those of fur trappers, enact historic scenes. West Edmonton Mall, the biggest retail centre in the country, is the flagship of a great selection of Edmonton shopping venues.
Shakers Acres RV Park and Campground is on the east side of town and one of the closest sites to the city proper. It is a spacious no-frills location with all the basics needed for comfortable stays. A laundromat, hygienic bathrooms, a playground and a convenience store are among its facilities.
Glowing Embers RV Park is a few minutes' drive from West Edmonton Mall and a picturesque spot to enjoy the city's attractions. Benefits include a shop, laundromat, regularly cleaned washrooms and wireless internet.
In nearby Spruce Grove Diamond Grove RV Campground is set amid rolling landscapes. Facilities such as a well-equipped clubhouse, laundromat and supermarket provide that home-away-from feeling.
Once outside Edmonton, attractions and destinations are quite far apart. It pays to keep a full tank of petrol, especially when heading out into rural areas. Driving is on the right side of the road. Traffic tends be to light on secondary routes, but drivers should keep an eye out for stray wildlife. The blood alcohol limit for drivers is 0.08 per cent. Violators are hit with a CAN$1,000 fine and a one-year driving ban.
