A Love Affair with Edmonton

To all you haters, shut up or pack up...or let us guide you through what you're missing!

BY EMIL TIEDEMANN

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.

Endless festivals, a bustling arts community, a variety of sports recreation, and that mall that everyone seems to attach to the overall vision of Edmonton...these are amongst the many aspects that make E-town so damn special.

For all those haters who refuse to bask in the glory that Alberta's capital has evolved into, then perhaps they need to delve deeper into Edmonton's year-round offerings, or just pack up and get out, because I--and I'm sure thousands of others--have had enough of the backlash towards our diverse metropolis.

That doesn't mean that we're gonna sugar-coat everything that we do and everything we see; we're gonna fill you in on our personal experiences, whether they were good or bad, but we're gonna try and focus on the positive.

Our main goal is to showcase just how many things there are to do and see in the city of Edmonton, one of the most cultural towns in all of Canada, which has been proven time and time again.

Now with that said, let's take a look into all the places, the shops, the food, the events, and the people that make up the best city in the nation! Welcome to I Heart Edmonton...cheers!

Watch the tourism video below posted by edmonton.com, showing off our city and encouraging the rest of the world to come visit us!
