You're going to find yourself surrounded by interesting things to see and do, like the University of Edinburgh and the Heriot Watt University. If you're eager to make the most of your time here, also swing by the Edinburgh Zoo and the National Museum of Scotland.

Want to while away a few hours in a lush, green oasis? Take a trip to Princes Street Gardens. There's a great range of things to keep you busy in this destination.

What types of accommodations are available in Edinburgh?

Secure somewhere to spend your nights before you begin arranging all your awesome experiences in Edinburgh. Pick from the national capital's 406 Expedia accommodations and you'll be a step nearer to your next luxury getaway or cheap vacation.

After a long-haul flight, there's nothing quite like chilling out in a swanky room and ordering some room service. See what delicious treats await you at The Balmoral Hotel (1 Princes Street) or the Destiny Scotland - George IV Apartments (23 George IV Bridge). Alternatively, the Lyncliff Hotel (4 Windsor Street) and the Angel's Share Hotel (7-11 Hope Street) are a couple of properties worth looking into if you're traveling on the cheap.

No trip to Edinburgh would be truly complete without stopping off at Edinburgh Castle. The Old Town Chambers and the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa, Edinburgh are both within walking distance.

Is there an airport in Edinburgh?

There's nothing as satisfying as landing at Edinburgh Airport (EDI) after being confined in a cramped cabin for hours. When you've collected your baggage from the carousel and stretched your legs, you'll find yourself around 7 miles from Edinburgh's downtown area.

        I really liked the nearness of the hotel to the airport. Go out the front door, cross the street and walk straight to the terminal. Very convenient. The big purple tower at night was very helpful.
