Edmonton, also known as E-town or the Big E, is one of two major cities in Alberta and is located right between the Canadian Rocky Mountains and the prairies. It is also known as the City of Champions due to the efforts of its citizens to help the city recover from a tornado in 1987. Some also call it The Chuck from having a fairly large base of Ukrainian population.
Edmonton is home to some professional sports teams including the Edmonton Oilers of the NHL, and the Edmonton Eskimos of the CFL, so if you love spectator sports you will love Edmonton.
