Looking to hit the road but not quite sure where to go? Consider going on an RV rental road trip to Edmonton, Alberta and explore one of the youngest and fastest-growing cities in Canada. Located just a few hours from the Rocky Mountains and Jasper National Park, you’ll be surrounded by nature while having easy access to big-city entertainment. As one of Canada’s sunniest cities, with sun 325 days out of the year, it’s an ideal spot to visit year-round. However, with cold winters, the majority of campers will look to visit during the height of the summer when temperatures range between 20 and 30 celsius.
The capital of Alberta boasts plenty of fun activities to do. Take advantage of the hot summer days and spend some time exploring one of North America’s largest urban parks, the North Saskatchewan River Valley. If you’re looking for entertainment, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by Canada’s Festival City. With festivals happening every week, you’ll be sure to find something for everyone in the family. You can also visit the infamous West Edmonton Mall where you can take a thrilling ride on the indoor roller coasters, slide into World Waterpark, or play a round of bowling in between stores. Regardless of what you’re into, Edmonton has got you covered.
Once you've set up camp, you might be asking yourself if it's a good idea to take your Edmonton RV rental into town to explore the capital of Alberta. While the city has some street parking for RVs, it's best to make your way around using the transit system. Get a day pass and take as many rides as you need. First stop, the West Edmonton Mall. As the largest mall in North America, you'll be in awe of all that it has to offer. From shopping to mini putt, bowling to the infamous indoor roller coasters, there's something for everyone. Looking for outdoor entertainment? You're in luck, as Edmonton is known as Canada's Festival City. If you find yourself in Edmonton in mid-July, be sure to hit up the Edmonton International Street Performer's Festival. On the other hand, art lovers won't want to miss the Works Art and Design Festival that showcases art from well-known artists to up-and-coming students from all over the world.
