Overview
More
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.

this ave is well known to edmontonian's and houses the arts district, coffee shops, boutique stores and such.... very nice during the day or early evening. Some nights become a little crazy with those not being able to handle there manners when drinking.

In Edmonton, one long-standing divide is between hip Whyte Avenue and rather staid and businesslike Jasper Avenue. While the latter has come a tremendously long way and now qualifies as the main street of a vibrant downtown, the former still wins out as the place...More

Worth a trip to visit with many shops, pubs and good restaurants to visit. Well worth a visit. Lots of parking available or public transportation is readily available.

Walked up and down, the wife and I, with a stroller. Reminded us a little of a collage town since this is all quaint stores and restaurants. One of the better moods in Edmonton though.
