While disparagingly referred to by the moniker dead-monton for many years, Edmonton is experiencing a bit of a revival. The West Edmonton Mall provides abundant shopping and an indoor "pub street," if you're stuck in Edmonton in the winter.

Otherwise, several cool restaurants and bars have popped up around the downtown financial district and are worth exploring for a night. Edmonton, however, isn't the destination most are after but rather a launching point for Jasper or Banff.
