Hockey is king in Canada, and the Edmonton Oilers franchise has been a large part of maintaining Pro Hockey's hold on this North American country.  The Oilers have one of the finest traditions in the NHL, and their fans are recognized throughout the National Hockey League as some of its best.  With the immense popularity of the sport in the area, it's only fitting that a suitable building be erected that's capable of housing fan enthusiasm on a nightly basis. Built in 1974, Rexall Place, home of the Edmonton Oilers, is one of the NHL's classic pro venues, housing their storied history of Stanley Cup success.  It's a great location to see some world class, exciting NHL hockey, while not breaking the bank trying to attend one of these rousing contests.

Dadeo New Orleans Diner is just one of the many restaurants that can be found throughout the city of Edmonton that serves some of your favorite dishes for a fair price. Dadeo New Orleans specializes in Southern Soul Food that normally could be found on Bourbon St. However, this eatery adds their own special touch to the dishes to make it a truly unique experience. For a postgame meal, visit Piccolino Bistro for some of the best Italian food that can be found in the city of Edmonton. With outstanding service and phenomenal value, Piccolino Bistro should definitely be at the top of your list for restaurants to visit during a trip to see the Edmonton Oilers.

The nightlife in the city of Edmonton is also very fun and exciting, and there are many options available throughout town. Fluid Lounge on Jasper Avenue is the premier night club in Edmonton, and it continues to bring in both visitors and locals to make up its nightly audience. This is one of the more intimate dance halls that can be found, but the music is loud and the drinks are superb, so don't worry about getting your money's worth from Fluid. Gateway Boulevard is home to Canada's #1 country music night club, Cook County Saloon, that features a wide array of different dances and contests that can be either entered or observed. Inside this building, there is no limit to the amount of fun that can be had. Cook County Saloon is very popular amongst the local Edmonton crowd, and it will make country music fans happy that they found such a fun place to hang out.

Points of interest can also be explored while within in the city limits, look no further than Edmonton and District Historical Society. This provides an inside look into Edmonton's history and how the city evolved over time. There are many different exhibits and locations to visit in the District Historical Society, so it is important that visitors do not limit themselves to visiting just one section of the site. While in Edmonton, also visit Sir Winston Churchill Square. It is located in the heart of downtown Edmonton, and it is the location for most of the festivals and events that take place in the city. Various points of interest exist within Sir Winston Churchill Square, and it provides great value for your time.

Edmonton's hockey legacy was built on the backs of Wayne Gretzky along with all of the Stanley Cup Championship teams that have been able to bring the trophy to the city of Edmonton. With Rexall Place now being the home venue for the Oilers, there is nothing stopping this franchise from rising to the pinnacle of professional hockey once again.
