In case you haven’t noticed, Edmonton has some of the most beautiful sunsets ever. From vibrant pinks to deep purples, we see it all on a nightly basis. While you could sit on your patio or drive to the outskirts of town to take in the views, there is nothing better than seeing them in the city. We came up with a list of some amazing Edmonton lookout points around the city to catch the best sunsets.
Some people travel the globe to try and find sunsets like the ones we are blessed with every evening in Edmonton.
It seems like night after night, Edmonton is greeted with every colour of the rainbow and we couldn’t be more thankful for it.
In order to get the best views of the sky, you need to hit up a lookout point.

Take a picnic or your favourite dessert and watch the sunset unfold around you. It’s totally relaxing and a great way to wind down after a stressful day.
