Edinburgh Castle is one of the biggest icons for tourism in the city. Although it's not a castle in the traditional sense (it's actually a fortress), that doesn't stop this site from drawing in over one million visitors every year. Edinburgh Castle's main tourist competitor is the National Museum of Scotland, which exhibits its 8,000 objects to almost 1.8 million viewers annually. If history and art isn't your thing, you can travel to Portobello and experience the promenade, shops, cafes, and lovely sandy beach. Suffice it to say many Edinburgh vacations will focus on culture and the arts; don't forget to search for Edinburgh car rentals to transport you around this stunning city.
The most active time of year in Edinburgh is the late summer months. During this time, around 15 separate festivals are held in the Scottish capital. The caliber of these festivals is astonishing: The Edinburgh Festival Fringe, or The Fringe, is the largest art festival in the world. The Edinburgh International Film Festival is the world's oldest film festival. And with over 200 events scattered across the city, the Edinburgh Science Festival is one of the largest science festivals in Europe.
