Edmonton is know for many things. For one thing, it has one of the largest shopping malls in the world, West Edmonton Mall. Inside the mall it has the largest indoor swimming pool and the largest indoor amusement park with the worlds tallest indoor freefall drop. It's also known for its hockey team, the Edmonton Oilers. A very modern-looking art gallery is also under construction right now. It's also the farthest north capital in Canada.
