This hotel package is right from the website of the Edmonton Eskimos!

The Ramada Edmonton Hotel & Conference Centre, the hotel sponsor of the Eskimos, is offering the CFL Hotel Package. Only 10 minutes from Commonwealth Stadium and just five minutes from downtown, this hotel has it all — a great location and spacious guestrooms.

The 2013 Edmonton Eskimos season is the 55th for the team in the Canadian Football League and their 65th overall. The Eskimos are attempting to improve upon their 7–11 record from 2012, make the playoffs, and win their 14th Grey Cup championship. But they have a long way to go to reach those goals after a 1-6 start. Still, a visit to Commonwealth Stadium for an Eskies game is one opportunity no sports fan should miss if they are in the City of Champions.

This opportunity starts at $80 per person, is pre-paid, non-refundable and based on double occupancy. To see the Eskimos schedule, click here.

If the CFL isn’t enough of an adventure, then consider the Edmonton Corn Maze. Located 10 minutes southwest of the Alberta capital, the maze is formed in a 10-acre field with a number of cleared pathways. writer Karen Evenden had the chance to get lost in this fun and confusing puzzle last year and wrote about her experiences.

Evenden“At the entrance to the maze there is a choice of ‘passports’ with a range of trivia questions designed to help you find the numbered checkpoints inside. Of course if you were so inclined, it’s possible to wander around without the aid of the passport, but having the target of finding the numbered signs in the correct order creates more of a challenge and promotes teamwork. We disregarded the ‘Animal Quizdom’ and ‘Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader?’ passports for ‘Where in the World …?’ (being travel enthusiasts) and we headed off to conquer the maze. The corn, which rises up to 10 feet, lasts for a period of six weeks until the cooler weather sets in. The Edmonton Corn Maze is open from early September until the third week in October and offers a day-time or night-time experience.”
