Edmonton has an array of unique shopping districts, hundreds of specialty boutiques and the world-famous West Edmonton Mall.
- A Place to Call Home - Amy Carter
The very first day of school I missed the bus, waited for 40 minutes, and was 20 minutes late for class. But it got better.
- An Aussie in Edmonton - Meg McCready
The day the temperature reached an inconceivable -36 C, I stayed in bed and missed class. (They say only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun. I say only mad Canadians go out in those temperatures.) Luckily for my studies, that only happened once during the first winter.
- Crossing One Bridge - Ann Henry
As I crossed the High Level Bridge today, it reminded me why Edmonton is a great place to call home. My attention was drawn first by the bright blue sky and then the valley which stretches for miles in either direction.
- Happy Canada Day - Trevor Stenson
It made me glad my son is growing up in such a great community and proud as an Edmontonian, Albertan, and Canadian.
- Leaving Edmonton - Judy Chubbs
Several years ago on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, my husband and I left our home on the East Coast of Canada to drive to Edmonton for work.
- My First Time on the Mindbender - Marie Drake
The idea was hatched even before class had started. Me and my cousin are going to go ride the Mindbender after class today.
- Single Best Find/Mistake - Tony Vesseur
I’ve got a lot of really good customers who are really devoted to the store. Who really support the store. The guy who bought the lamp comes up from Calgary to shop here all the time.
- A Family Destination - Stephanie Sewap
Every year, Stephanie Sewap visits Edmonton with her husband and four children. Their favourite spot? West Edmonton Mall.
- A Small Holiday - Patricia Proskurniak
The first night out for my daughter after having her first child was at The Rev (now the Starlite Room), where we had to leave Sarah Slean’s performance early.
- Everyone Loves a Farmers' Market - Edmonton Farmers’ Market
You may not know this, but Edmonton is a bit of a foodie town. Our entrepreneurial growers of fresh produce stock the city's many farmers markets with plenty of locally-grown food.
- The Chengdu Visit - Ashley Chung
When the Chengdu youths arrived in Edmonton, there was a welcoming dinner. It was nerve wracking as I reluctantly made my way to sit amongst them. I was thinking of so many different things at once! Would they like me? Was my Chinese good enough?
- Tour of Edmonton - John McLaughlin
I’ll never forget the 10-day visit from my folks – Ted, my Dad, Uncle Harold and Aunt Eileen, and 11-year-old nephew Ben. They arrived via Air Canada on a warm, beautiful Canada Day.
