8 Not-to-Be-Missed Restaurants in Edmonton

Edmonton is somewhat of a renaissance city. It’s cool, but coy. Has a lot to offer, but doesn’t want to brag. The capital of [Alberta](http://bit.ly/2MYtyyB), Edmonton is a center for culture and education, and hosts a thriving arts scene. In recent years, a crop of new restaurants has arrived––like the crowd-pleasing Biera and cocktail-centric Clementine––giving [Edmonton](http://bit.ly/2NtacSD) major cred in the food world. Area chefs aren’t simply satisfied with making good food; they’re making it artful, interesting, and as local as it comes. Whether they’re boasting farm-to-table traditions or a menu beholden to all-things Italian, these are eight restaurants you won’t want to miss in The Big E.

9 Manitoba’s wackiest roadside attractions

From giant mosquitos and snakes to a curling rock and a smiling rock, Manitoba is home to some fun and quirky roadside attractions.

My favourite roadside attraction in Manitoba is a pair of giant red-sided garter snakes on a rocky pedestal in Inwood, not far from the world-famous Narcisse Snake Dens. In the spring, more than 100,000 snakes come out of their communal winter dens for a mating frenzy before the normally anti-social creatures slither away to summer feeding grounds. In the fall, the snakes make a collective beeline back to their four dens deep in limestone crevices. S-sara and S-sam, as they’re officially known, are available for viewing year-round in Inwood Park just off Hwy. 17 — just don’t climb on them.

5 Best places to see the Northern Lights in Canada

The Northern Lights have magical and mystical qualities, but they can also be explained by science. Simply put, the skies dance with colour when particles electrically charged by the sun interact with the Earth’s magnetosphere.

Luckily, contrary to popular belief, witnessing aurora borealis doesn’t have to mean heading to the far north or camping out in arctic conditions. The northern lights are visible year-round from locations underneath the “auroral oval,” a massive ring that wraps around the earth’s magnetic north pole. (With that being said, winter is the best season to spot them, owing to clearer skies and longer, darker nights.) Continue at Source: 5 Best places to see the Northern Lights in Canada

Capital plates in the capital city

Montreal might have more of a reputation as Quebec’s culinary hub (it’s helped along by a much larger population), but the province’s capital is not to be overlooked. The chefs, brewers, and patissiers behind the places on this guide have helped build up a vibrant dining scene that has roots in traditionally Québécois dishes and produce, but now goes well beyond the old staples of tourtiere or pouding chômeur, showcasing Quebec’s terroir in creative new ways. But the options go beyond Quebec’s borders — there’s also great ramen, pizza, and diner fare, to name a few. Continue at Source: The 22 Essential Quebec City Restaurants
