A really great review of someone's visit to Edmonton:

So, what did we think of our visit? We loved it! Edmonton has a city vibe, but it’s not like London or New York. You can actually put your arms round Edmonton in a big hug and enjoy most of it in one 10-day trip. Admittedly it’d be a very busy 10 days, but if you’re not into a fast paced kind of life you could pick and choose a few highlights and still get a good taste of the place.

The city doesn’t feel like a particularly touristy place. There’s plenty to see and do, but we always seemed to be the only ones with our cameras out and we never really experienced a queue. Whenever we were with other people we were always the only English ones. Perhaps we just knew where to go to experience an authentic Edmonton or perhaps it’s still a bit of a secret destination – whatever the reason it was great to have it to ourselves (or at least it felt that way) and it was really welcoming. We felt like honorary locals.

You can spend the morning surrounded by skyscrapers in downtown Edmonton and the afternoon in a national park spotting free roaming bison. Yup, Edmonton has a split personality, but in a good way. You can’t beat an all-rounder, eh?

Well, the study was done by a Calgary group.
