where to watch the sun set

by whiteshado

I dotn live in edmonton but i am looking for a place to watch the sunset there. ill be at white ave (or however you spell it) is tehre a nice place we can go and watch the sunest. not at a resturant or anything. ill most likely need directions from white ave is good enough.

RE: where to watch the sun set

When will you be in Edmonton??
The time of year really makes a difference for the best place for sunsets.
In the winter, any location that faces southwest (for example, from Marchand Mansion on the north side of the N. Saskatchewan River - you'll get a view of the U of A campus and the setting sun.
In the summertime, walk from Whyte Avenue to Saskatchewan Drive and find a viewpoint to the northwest.
You'll need clear (or almost clear) skies for the best sunset.
If it is overcast it won't matter where you are.

By the way, the Le Marchand Mansion is a brick building at about 116th street and off 100th ave (just west of the downtown core and not far from the High Level Bridge - you can't drive north on that bridge but you can walk across it in both directions).

Travel Tips for Edmonton

CJSR 88.5FM Radio

by Karlie85

CJSR is the volunteer run, university radio station in Edmonton. They are on 24/7, and play the widest variety of music you can imagine. There is something for literally everyone on this station. Punk, jazz, hip-hop, heavy metal, spoken word, a travel show...the list goes on and on. It is definitely worth checking out if you are in Edmonton, or even if you're not. Just check out their website!!

Anything you need is here!

by Karlie85

Edmonton has pretty extreme weather, so be prepared, no matter what season you are here. One saying that is used quite often is "If you don't like the weather in ALberta, wait 5 minutes!"

Edmonton summers can get quite hot in the daytime, with the average temperature ranging anywhere from 17C to 30C. It is not very humid. Bring anything you like: t-shirts, shorts, jeans, dresses, skirts, any kind of shoes. I usually try to avoid socks in the summer, but that's just me. The evenings can still get a bit chilly, so I would recommend long pants and a sweatshirt.

Our winters can range from mostly mild (0C to -10C) to extremely cold (-30C), so be very well prepared. Wear layers. Have a good warm jacket, gloves, scarf, earmuffs, and warm socks. You may not always need it, but it is good to have. Don't forget your sunscreen in the summer :) You will have no probelm finding any type of toiletries and medical supplies, photo equipment, or outdoor gear. There are malls, drug stores, clothing stores and specialty stores everywhere.

University of Alberta - Museums & Exhibitions

by gubbi1

Many people might not think about it, but in Edmontons University of Alberta there are several smaller Museums and Exhibitions hidden and worth to be discovered.

During my stay I had a look at an exhibition of minerals and of paleontology. Check the website to find out if there is something which suites you interests.

Cheaper And Neater

by themonkeyshavelice about Whyte Avenue

Whyte Avenue is actually a street full of wonderful shops. It's mostly known to locals, so it's not so terribly touristy. It's not very busy, and although there are some brand name stores, there are also lots of individually owned stores full of priceless items. Actually, they do have a price, and it's almost always very reasonable. You can probably bet that anything you buy out there won't be back home, and you can bet good money that it's a good deal. No matter what you're looking for, you'll probably find it on Whyte Avenue. On Whyte Avenue prices are usually similar to yard sale prices. Belly button rings that are typically 40 or 50 dollars can be found for 10 and other jewellary is cheap as well. Clothes at individually owned stores is incredibly low in price and is typically the same at name brand stores. Books are cheaper and all souvenirs are at local prices. So you won't get sucked in by a over priced, extremely fragile boggle to stare at broken back at your hotel room.

Here's one club...

by Shara.Buchan

Here's one club that's literally changed with the times. It first opened in the '80s as Goose Loonies, where the local movers, shakers, headline-grabbers and incessant Yuppies in general partied throughout the wee hours.
The '90s saw the club morph into The Thunderdome, and with it, a dramatic shift in itinerary to cater to the pop culture dinosaurs who survived the Mesozoic Era (or the salad days of the period we now historically refer to as Classic Rock). Bands booked during this throw-back period included Def Leppard, Trooper, Streetheart, Nazareth and other legendary ear-bleeders that brought in the masses that still own vinyl in their collections.
