Tourism for hockey fans in Edmonton
Visit Ã®nÃ®w, Edmonton’s first Indigenous art park (founded in 2018), with sculptures like Iskotew by Amy Malbeuf, inspired by the Cree word for fire, and Mikikwan by Duane Linklater, depicting an ancient buffalo skin scraper . At the Whiskeyjack Art House, you can see works by local artists or purchase raspberry leaf tea or blueberry and sage jam.
To be hungry ? The Ice Cream District, home of Rogers Place, offers a wide variety of mouthwatering restaurants, with on-site, take-out and delivery options.
The Delux Burger Bar offers everything from Baja fish tacos and bacon cheeseburger poutine, to mini donuts and artisanal milkshakes. Fans of Indian cuisine can enjoy butter chicken samosas and lamb vindaloo at Guru Restaurant. For Asian fusion cuisine, try Baijiu’s innovative dishes, like smoked eggplant dumplings or candy cane teriyaki wings. Or grab a bowl of avocado salmon or prime rib steak at Chop.
And if you want a bit of everything, the West Edmonton Mall is Canada’s largest mall with over 800 stores, a massive pirate ship, and the Ice Palace, an ice rink that once served as a training center for the Oilers. The mall celebrated its 40th anniversary in September.
