Autumn in Edmonton is the most anticipated time of year. The blistering summer heat is gone and replaced by crisp, fresh air. What could be better than that?
September and October offer a great opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while the weather is nice and the leaves turn into a stunning ombre of red, orange, and yellow.
From hiking through the most popular trails and enjoying the fall colours to cuddling in a café cozy chair and reading a book, there are endless fun things to do in Alberta’s capital.
