Is Edmonton, Alberta a nice or interesting place to live?

For how far north it is, I'm surprised to see how many people and how much urban development there is in Edmonton, Alberta. Is this a nice place to live? What do folks do there for business and recreation. Thanks.

I would not want to live in Edmonton - the winters are too cold for me. I suggest that you move to Victoria.

I find Edmonton to be a pretty nice city; I prefer it over Calgary. Business and recreation activities are pretty diverse...it has everything that other big cities have. Of course there are also a lot of jobs in Alberta in the energy/oil industry, but not a whole lot right in Edmonton.

Boring. People in edmonton dont have a life. Might be the harsh weather. I have seen that people in edmonton are nosy, love to stalk, pry. Very old fashioned, no modernisation.

53 degrees north. It gets really cold there in the winter. But otherwise Edmonton is a fine place to live. Pretty well everything possible to do in a city for business and recreation is available there.

"I'm surprised to see how many people and how much urban development there is in Edmonton, Alberta" We are not a frozen hostile wasteland. Alberta is the richest province in Canada. The people are very approachable, helping and nice. It's a very nice place to live. It's hot in the summer (maybe your definition of hot... More
