Edmonton is one of Canada’s fastest growing cities with over a million residents and is also known to be Canada’s sunniest city (yay!). Being located in Alberta, Edmonton is a big city with country side roots and offers a cool mix of old vs new. I got to spend 5 days in there back in September and here are my top things to do in Edmonton.
In September, I got to visit Edmonton for Canada’s 150 year anniversary. Edmonton is quite a diverse city with lots to offer in terms of culture but also food. According to locals I spoke to in Edmonton, the food scene has been very up and coming in recent years. Chefs have been working all over the world before settling back down in their home town, bringing inspirations from various different places around the world. This definitely shows in the food scene with lots of fun fusion restaurants that still keep the Canadian touch. Here are my top 10 food recommendations in Edmonton.
A year after my solo trip to the US, I’m still reminiscing about my stay at Encore in Vegas during Labour Day weekend. I associate this hotel with one of the best times of my life and I wasn’t ready to leave after just 3 days.
Maybe it was because I had been staying at a hostel in New York for almost a week (for the first time in my life).
Maybe it was because they took such good care of me while I was traveling alone.
May I remind you this is where prince Harry had his infamous Vegas pictures taken.
Whatever the reason, Encore is the best hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Why?
I came back from my trip last week and I can honestly say that it was one of the best thing I’ve ever done. The whole experience from beginning to end was completely new to me and it felt amazing.
