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.

We happened upon the streetcar by the strathcona market. There was no line so we bought tickets and got on. It was really neat. Kind of scary being on top of the bridge. Loved the restored look. The conductor was great. Loved it

This is a great way to visit Old Strathcona if you live or stay downtown. Be aware that it gets busy and you may have to wait in line, especially on a sunny Saturday.

i am not a fan of this SHORT train ride. I was un-impressed, but the ride seems to get kids excited though.
