Whether you are into culture, food or entertainment in the heart of Edmonton there can be found something for everyone. Among the hotels, shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs. Either way you will find yourself walking through the visually striking swirl of glass, steel and zinc that is the Art Gallery of Alberta; the oldest of the cultural institution in the province, showcasing Alberta Art from 1924 to the present. Being a Hotspot, City Hall in the centre of Churchill Square and next to the tall clock tower is a wading pool for cooling off in the summer or for practice those figure skating moves in the winter. Either way the Heart of Edmonton has something for everyone to enjoy, but you must let your mind be wide open. And if you can do that, who knows what you will be able to find.
I recently returned back home to Edmonton from a year living in Australia, and coming back has allowed me to open my mind and see the beauty the City of Edmonton. So here i vow to you this summer, to get out and See Edmonton and share, to show you Edmonton!
Just close your eyes, but keep your mind wide open.
On the weekend my friend and I taking the LRT from Stadium to Churchill Square, LRT fare pp $3.20. As you walk down The Arts District and come across 104street, this quant stylish street with a few Artsy style restaurants and decor there on your left hand side: The Blue Diner.
The atmosphere is chilled, relaxed with a mixture of blue, orange and red wall colours with servings of great delicious food – where you can have a margarita pizza in a sandwich style with yummy sweet potatoe fries and a nice cool Iced Tea drink.
What also makes The Blue Diner so chariable is the fact that it gives back to the community by showcasing their Mealshare program – so when you purchase a menu item with the mealshare logo next to it you provide a meal for someone in need just by enjoying the food you love. As Mealshare donates to one of their charitable partners enabling them to provide a complete meal to someone in need. Just as simple as that.
