People come from all over Alberta to indulge in the ever-expanding food scene, to soak in the infectious entrepreneurial spirit, and to take in the non-stop lineup of big-name concerts. One-stop entertainment spots like 124 Street, Whyte Avenue, and West Edmonton Mall are attractions year-round, and a visit to the city would never be complete without exploring the architecturally stunning Art Gallery of Alberta or taking in an inspiring performance at one of the many local theatres. 54
