Edson Hotels

Beneath the big blue skies of Yellowhead County in Alberta, the town of Edson is as tranquil as communities come. What it lacks it glitz and glamor, it more than makes up for in simple, natural beauty, wide open green spaces, and the potential for outdoor adventures amid the waxwings, blue jays, and horned owls that call this ravishing region home. And if you're here during the snowfalls, you can trek across the Hornbeck Cross-Country Ski Area, just north of Edson, or whoosh along the slopes of Silver Summit Alpine Ski Resort.

Things to see

Swing your way to success at Edson Golf Club, which offers 18 holes across swathes of immaculately manicured grass which is run through by the crystalline waters of Bench Creek. If you're here with young kids and the sun is beating down, head over to Spray Park, which lives up to its name with playful water jets that'll cool even the most hyperactive children down. Find a place nearby for a perfect picnic with the family. Another attraction in Edson is the Galloway Station Museum, a celebration of Alberta's natural beauty and wildlife, where you can enter a real Trapper's Cabin adorned with animal pelts and age-old trapping tools, as well as an old still that used to make hooch in the days of the bootleggers. The museum is located in Centennial Park, so once you've seen the exhibits you can have a leisurely amble around the green fields and see the huge water fountain. Keep an eye out for the statue of Eddie the Squirrel, an icon of the area. Other green spaces to relax in are Kinsmen Park, with its clusters of mature spruce trees, and Glenwood Park with its children's playground. Meanwhile, Vision Park boasts no fewer than 24 baseball diamonds in one place, and if sport and exercise is on your mind you should also visit Talisman Place, with its indoor pool, waterslide, and other fitness facilities.

Hotels in Edson

In keeping with the charmingly low-key nature of the area, hotels in Edson are all about home comforts rather than showy decor and hedonistic add-ons.

Air conditioning, free WiFi, minibars, and on-site fitness centers are among the amenities typically found in accommodation around these parts, so you shouldn't want for anything while in Edson.

Where to stay

The good thing about this neck of the woods is, that despite seeming blissfully removed from the hectic rough and tumble of big cities, it's actually rather well stocked with places to stay. There are hotels in Edson dotted throughout the town center, meaning you'll easily find the right place to stay, close to the local parks and natural attractions.
