 Edmonton Touristy destination

Travel Alberta

By: Zdenko Kahlina

It’s time we learn to love our great capital city
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting tired of people having nothing good to say about the city that I’ve come to love, a city that has so much to offer and so much to see, from the farmer’s markets of downtown and Old Strathcona, to the endless pathways of the tranquil river valley. Edmonton, the rightful ‘City of Champions’ may need time to grow on you, but once it does, there’s no turning back.

An Urban Village in the city of Edmonton
The Village at Griesbach, as it is now called, has blossomed into a modern urban community that is leading the way in innovative design and sustainability. It’s undergone a remarkable transformation since 2003, when the property was transferred from the Department of National Defence to Canada Lands Company (CLC), a federal Crown corporation responsible for developing surplus government properties.

Do you know that Edmonton has its own street car? Last summer during the Fringe festival, because of the parking problem in Old Strathcona, my wife and I decided to ride the streetcar.

Good Eats on the Mean Streets
How do you know its summer in Edmonton? Easy, there are mobile eateries in almost every street around downtown. There are many different types of mobile eateries. From the small and very portable ‘Fat Frank’ trailer(s) to the big green ‘Drift mobile eatery’ track parked somewhere around Jasper Avenue and 107 Street.

An Edmonton native offers cultural hints for out-of-province students.
The quest for knowledge begins anew this autumn as students from all over the province, country, and world are stuffed into Edmonton’s institutions of higher learning — forced, therefore, to become responsible, intelligent young adults … or keg stand champs.

 I want to ride my bicycle

I want to ride my bicycle (in Edmonton)
You would think by now we would have figured out how to accommodate cyclists in this city in a way that encourages bicycle commuting and keeps cyclists safe. But it would appear that a solution to the challenges faced by those of us who want to cycle to work or anyplace else is as elusive as finding ways to keep our streets clean in winter and free from potholes in the spring.

 Don’t drive in Edmonton!

Life in Edmonton

Driving in Edmonton
Don’t drive here if you don’t have to. Edmonton and Calgary have the worst vehicle accident rates in the country. There are many explanations, but it all boils down to – people here are very bad drivers. This blog is meant to be a warning for the Edmonton tourists and visitors.

Warm weather is beginning to return to Edmonton at last, bringing with it the staggering array of festivals and concerts that make the city’s summers so remarkable.

 First ride of the year

Cycling Stories

By: Zdenko Kahlina

Man, it feels good to go bike riding after a long winter.
(Re-posting from 2009) With the temperature making it up to a balmy +5 degrees today, I finally ventured out of my basement cave, where I’d been riding my bike on a stationary trainer, and took it back outdoors where it belongs. On the agenda was a first scheduled weekend group ride with the members of Edmonton Masters Cycling Club (EMCC) members.

Grain Elevators – will they survive?
Between Edmonton and Viking there are a number of sites that have grain elevators still standing by the highway, representing real rural areas in Alberta. I took pictures of the new mega grain elevators that are replacing old-fashioned wooden elevators from the past.

The first Christmas – the way it was 2,000 years ago
2000 years ago, something happened in a small town just outside of Jerusalem that changed the course of history. The birth of a baby, known as Jesus, put Bethlehem on the map – and the world has never been the same. We still mark our calendars by it today.

 The Gift of Not Giving a Thing

By: Christella Morris

WHY I DON’T WANT ANY MORE PRESENTS FOR MY BOYS.
We’re pretty lucky in our family. I can cross off three out of four birthdays in May alone! Then Christmas and the fourth birthday (the youngest) are both taken care of in December. This makes for a lot less time worrying about buying presents and a lot more time thinking about how much crap stuff we have.

Experience the Bounty in Parkland County.
It was the best weekend to go and stroll through the Parkland County. So I packed my bicycle in my car and drove west of the city into the Parkland County, to enjoy the weather. It’s perhaps the best time to get out and just ride for the pure pleasure of it. On this tour I will take you through the Glory Hills to Chickakoo Lake and Muir Lake…

A road trip through Alberta’s David Thompson Trail.
Southern Alberta’s east-west Hwy. 11 takes its nickname from legen-dary English cartographer and fur trader David Thompson (1770-1857), who surveyed nearly four million square kilometers of North America for the Hudson’s Bay Company and the North West Company. Today’s voyageurs-by-car will discover vintage trains, trading posts and trail rides along this more laid-back alternative to the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy. 1).
