The Hidden Gems of Edmonton

Today Edmonton AM spent the show digging into the hidden gems around the city. From trails to restaurants, events to bands, we took a microscope to the city and talked to those in the know.

With picks from Yeg foodies Brittney Leblanc, Cindy Ngyuen, and Shane Groendahl. Local venue owners Craig Martell and Trevor Belsher. A look at some unique buildings with Dan Rose. Edmonton Tourism's Renee Williams also stopped by with some interesting events. Karen Unland has a list of interesting blogs and podcasts focusing on the city. Blue Knox and Jennifer Schaffer each had some picks for date nights and places to take your kids. And representing the river valley, Chris Tse brought some interesting trails, Paul Bunner has a good place to get into the river, and for those looking to diversify their diet, Elisabeth Beaubien has a list of edible plants that can be found in the valley.

All that and more can be found below.
