Just because the sun’s gone down doesn’t mean that there is any shortage of things to do in Edmonton. First, check out a variety of delicious dining choices for your family ranging from the upscale Canadian fare of the Hardware Grill to the thrilling experience of a custom-made pizza at Blaze Pizza. Then, if your kids are old enough to entertain themselves for the evening, get ready for a night on the town! (Psst.. the Fairmont Macdonald’s concierge is happy to arrange a babysitter otherwise.)
For music lovers, there’s no better place to spend the night than Al’s House of Blues. Featuring top blues bands, great drinks and reasonable cover charges, it’s a favourite with locals and visitors alike for good reason. Make sure to save room after dinner for some delicious late-night munchies too!
Prefer comedy to music? Choose from shows at Rick Bronson’s The Comic Strip or Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Club and get ready to laugh the night away. The Comic Strip shows are open to ages 16 and older and are conveniently located in the West Edmonton Mall. Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Club is for adult audiences only. Both are a great choice for fans of stand-up comedy, so check out the week’s headliners and grab your tickets!
Being just a few hours away from Edmonton means that it’s a place we tend to visit again and again throughout the year. That’s a good thing, since there are way too many fun-filled attractions to fit into just one weekend.
But when you are visiting for just a weekend, you ought to sample the culture, entertainment, incredible food and, of course, some of the best shopping you’ll find in North America. Whether you’re on a couple’s getaway or a family road trip, you’re sure to have a great time in this vibrant Prairie city.
