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.

Take a walk on the wild side
I’ve already spent a lot of time traveling around Alberta, because I love to explore new territories. I always wanted to experience Alberta like the locals do so one sunny day when we were both off work Vera and I decided to tour the Alberta. We left Edmonton early in the morning and choose the secondary Hwy #21 going south to an often overlooked destination: the Badlands.

What is it like living in Edmonton
I have lived in Edmonton for over 25 years now, and I think Edmonton is slowly but surely shaping up to be the next trendy destination for many tourists. Forget the Golden Gate Bridge and other touristy destinations down south in America. Tourists should check out the High Level Bridge and North Saskatchewan River here in Edmonton!

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.
