This Canadian city is the gateway to Jasper National Park — and host to year-round festivals.

Edmonton, Alberta, is known as Canada's festival city for its four-season events schedule, including the annual Fringe Festival. And while Edmonton is also an important gateway to Jasper National Park, the city offers a varied culinary (and cocktail) scene — with a celebrated Chinatown — along with indoor adventures at downtown’s ICE district and outdoor adventures along the North Saskatchewan River.
