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.

From 99 St to 109 St this street has restaurants and stores. It's a great place for 'people watching'. Parking is available on side streets.

Been visiting for many years and I'd say Whyte ave is still the same as it's always been. A few interesting shops but not many. Mostly bars for the young crowd and fast food joints. There's a decent market but it wasn't open this time...More
