Edmonton is one of the sunniest cities in the country; you can get splendid sunny days with 17 hours of daylight between June and August -the perfect time to pack for warm-weather activities. Bring a cozy jacket for the rest of the year because Edmonton is the northernmost big city in North America, so it gets cold half of the year.
