Spend the Afternoon in Downtown Edmonton

 

Whether you are a first-timer to the area or practically an
Edmonton native, there is a lot to see and do in this enchanting metropolitan
city. From an insider's tour to a journey back in time, Edmonton has something
for everyone. This guide will help you get the most out of your afternoon in
downtown Edmonton, Alberta.

Tour Edmonton

Discover everything Edmonton has to offer with a tour of the city.
Indulge in Edmonton's finest foods and beverages as you work up an appetite on
a citywide foodie bike tour. Hire a professional chauffeur to guide you through
downtown's craft-brewery scene or explore Edmonton's urban river valley
on a scenic Segway trek. Big E Tours is your Edmonton guide when touring aboard
a comfortable bus is more your style.

See the Symphony

Experience the magic of music with the Edmonton Symphony
Orchestra. This is not your grandpa's ensemble. Listen to the sounds of offbeat
genres ranging from rock to country, enthusiastically played by innovative
musicians with a flair for symphonic music. Hear all the familiar classical
masterworks, hip-hop and pop favorites, and even special concerts for the kids.

Joining the stage at downtown's Francis Winspear Centre for Music are
greats such as Frank Zappa and Barenaked Ladies. With over 85 shows a year,
there is sure to be a concert orchestrated just for you.

Visit a Museum

Who doesn't love the colorful glow of a vintage neon sign? Examine
the Neon Sign Museum's collection of these brightly hued insignias from old or
demolished buildings. On display at the 4th Street Promenade, the assemblage
began with just eight early-style, iconic signs from Edmonton's history. Due to
rising costs, neon signs are a dying art, and the museum dedicates its
resources to preserving this craft.

Human history takes an exciting 11,000-year trip through our past
at
the Royal Alberta Museum, scheduled to reopen in its brand-new location in 2018. Learn about
the heritage of Alberta's people and the natural environment around us through
exhibits, specimens, and conservation programs.

Take Me out to the Ballpark

Summer or winter, you bet there is a game happening in Edmonton.
Visit the RE/MAX Field near the North Saskatchewan River this summer and cheer
on our collegiate baseball team, the Edmonton Prospects. Watch NHL stars battle
it out at the ICE District's Rogers Place, as the Edmonton Oilers take on their
next opponent. Will they win the Stanley Cup this year?

Enjoy Some Retail Therapy

The 124th Street area is Edmonton's most vibrant shopping district
and home to fashion boutiques, antique stores, specialty artisan shops, and a
dozen art galleries. No matter your style, if fashion is your passion, the stores
in Edmonton offer more than 100 ways to get your fix. Most of these charming
local retailers and cozy restaurants are unique to the area.

From shopping to active adventures, Edmonton is a hot spot for
fun. Discover everything you can see and do when you spend the afternoon
downtown.
