Best time to visit Edmonton

Edmonton enjoys a moderately low rainfall, but also experiences long, cold winters. Temperatures begin to drop in late autumn and don't begin to rise again until early spring. Summer in Edmonton is a popular time for camping, but it is still advisable to pack lots of warm clothes.

Edmonton's calendar is packed with events year round. In August the city hosts the popular Edmonton Folk Music Festival, attracting international musicians to the city. Anybody visiting the region over winter may catch Ice on Whyte, a display of ice-carvings in the city centre.

Driving tips in Edmonton

If you are planning to explore Edmonton with a cheap rental car, it is a good idea to check the traffic and road situations to avoid any delays. If you are picking up your car from Edmonton International Airport, you will find the depots on Level P1 in the Parkade (parking garage).

Visitors are advised to familiarise themselves with the major roadways in Edmonton before driving. These include the Yellowhead Trail, Kingsway, Whitemud Drive, and Anthony Henday Drive. Edmonton is connected to other cities in British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Alberta via the Yellowhead Highway and Highway 2.

Some Great Ideas on What to Do With an Edmonton Car Hire 

Royal Alberta Museum or the Provincial Museum of Alberta was established in Edmonton in 1967. This is a history museum and you can visit it at 12845 102 Avenue. Its objective is to preserve and share the story of Edmonton and of the whole of Alberta, to help the locals understand better the world around them.

Art Gallery of Alberta or the Edmonton Art Gallery is a public art gallery open since 1924. The building was designed by Don Bittorf in a Brutalist style and is the home of more than 6,000 works of art. The collections kept in this Edmonton gallery include paintings, sculptures, photographs and installation works.

Telephone Historical Center is another Edmonton museum, based on telecommunication. This attraction opened for visitors on December 3, 1987 and offers great tours. You can admire the artifacts and find out everything about the history of phone usage in Edmonton.

Festivals Galore - It would be hard to visit Edmonton when there are no festivals scheduled. Of course having a rental car booked means you can easily access any festival at anytime. 

With over 30 festivals planned each year, be sure to check out what's on when you intend to visit. LitFest and Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival are held every October while Ice on Whyte is usually held end of January!

Microphone in front of the crowd

Edmonton Folk Music Festival is an annual event held in Edmonton. The tradition of this festival started in 1980. Since then, each year in the second weekend of August, Canadians that live in the area and not only, gather downtown Edmonton to celebrate this great folk event and to listen to good music.

West Edmonton Mall - Now, have you ever heard of the term 'shop till you drop'? If there is any place in Canada to do that, then it is definitely the West Edmonton Mall. With over 800 shops and other services and more than 100 places to eat, you will be glad you have a rental car to fit all your bargains. It may take more than one day to explore the mall and I'm sure you don't want to miss a thing. You may also want to do your homework about which part of the mall you wish to explore so you can park the rental more conveniently.

    Feedback: When making a one-way booking, it would be good if the one-way fee was explicitly stated - especially if it's $0. Otherwise I'm left wondering if I'm gonna be dinged with a one-way fee later ....
