Whyte Avenue (also known as 82 Avenue) is an arterial road in south-central Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It became the main street of the City of Strathcona as it formed, and now runs through Old Strathcona. It was named in 1891 after Sir William Whyte, who was superintendent of the CPR's western division from 1886 to 1897 and was knighted by King George V in 1911. Old Strathcona is Edmonton's main arts and entertainment district, and is also a shopping hub for local residents and students at the nearby University of Alberta. Whyte Avenue, now a heritage area, is at the heart of this district, housing many shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

A normal street with boutiques and restaurants. It is very cold in September, and I did not find it attractive to walk! Nothing really special.

Quant shops, eateries, and watering holes but nothing to scream about. Been down plenty of small town main streets that were better. Some history of older buildings may interest you.

It has great little independent shops, pubs and wonderful farmer's market on Saturday. There are young and old people here, hipsters and hippies, a real great blend of people from all kinds of backgrounds and cultures.
