Edmonton is a fun city to live in if YOU are not boring!
I live and study in the capital of Alberta, the stereotyped not-so-cool-to-live-in Edmonton according to many. If you think Edmonton is boring, I have a little piece of advice for you: a boring person can't be entertained anywhere in the world. So, work on yourself instead of criticizing what the city has to offer!
You might suffer from variations of depression if you wait for the good events to knock on your door. I have heard the, "So, why move from Toronto to Edmonton?" many times from people with different backgrounds. Well, if your only entertainment is to hang up with your Iranian buddies in Toronto, and go from restaurant to coffee-shop back to a restaurant and then gather in a house party, you probably aren't living Toronto's cultural life to the fullest anyways.
You are the person who makes your life fun and entertaining. If you are an outgoing person, you will find plenty of activities to enjoy in Edmonton. There are concerts under the sky, celebrity concerts, estivals, good restaurants, vicinity to the beautiful Canadian Rockies, and much much more. The city is amazingly green and beautiful in summer time. You can't be bored in this city unless you are boring yourself!
