When travellers think of the city of Edmonton, West Edmonton in particular comes to mind because of a significant tourist attraction it offers: West Edmonton Mall. West Edmonton Mall is the largest shopping mall in all of North America, and ranks as the tenth largest mall in the world. Until 2004, this shopping extravaganza held the world title as the largest mall, and still continues to bring in over 30 million visitors every year. It covers nearly five and a half million square feet! With 800 stores, as well as a waterpark, ice rink, and amusement park, it's no wonder West Edmonton Mall is on the "must see" list for many travellers.

Visitors can enjoy walking and hiking trails, as well as canoeing and walking the dog. Edmonton Country Club, which is also situated close to the river, is a popular destination for the golf lovers of Edmonton.
