After a hard day of work, you might need a bit of extra pampering. It is essential to spend some time where you treat yourself with things that will keep you feeling great. To help have the best winter ever, we've rounded up 30 things to do in Edmonton that cost $30 or less.

When it comes to a day of spoiling yourself, you might think it will leave your wallet empty. But you can enjoy simple indulgences like a spa day or even brunch with a friend.

Another fantastic way to boost your mood is by trying a fun activity with your friends. For example, you could try a peaceful yoga drop-in class.

Another must-try is Edmonton's 4D movie theatre, where you will feel part of the movie. Instead of just watching the video, you'll get to experience weather like fog, or even smell things like flowers and fresh air.

Food also is a fantastic way to make you feel great. For just a few bucks you can devour a doughnut that is bigger than your head, or try some of the best pizza in the city.

Or if you are looking to try out a hidden gem, then you need to try to find Alchemy Bar. This cocktail bar has an entrance hidden behind a bookcase.
