Open May Long weekend to October each year, the streetcar's views of the city and the river are absolutely amazing. This is also the best way to get from the farmer's market to downtown.

Take a pleasant ride over Edmonton's North Saskatchewan River. You will enjoy this scenic ride and reminisce about a time in life that has come to pass.

It is a simply ride but loved it. It was fun, educational and has a great view when crossing the bridge. This is a must ride if you are in the area and it is open.
