General city Information, Edmonton
When in Edmonton I highly recommend going to an Edmonton Oilers game. We Albertains are very fond of our Hockey teams especially the Oilers.
If hockey is not your sport that I can also recommend attending a Edmonton Eskimo's football game. Also one of ALberta's two CFL teams. Chances are we have a sports team that will meet your tastes.
Edmonton is known for being the shopping mall capital of North America. As well as the festival capital. We are more recently becoming known for constant live shows including music, plays, dance, etc. Every single day in Edmonton there is garunteed to be a dozen things to choose from, that will be completely different the very next day. I always recommend to everyone to grab a free daily magazine that circulates here. It is called DOSE. Towards the back of the magazine is a listing, by no means exhaustive, of the things going on that day. These magazines can be found all over Edmonton. Otherwise check the local papers, the local news, or just ask around, Edmontonians are friendly.
Good sources of information for the future visitors are 'Enjoying Edmonton' and 'Discover Edmonton'.
