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.

Quirky shops and generic shops. Walk the whole span and find a bunch of cool stores. Some blocks better than others. Careful crossing the road; drivers in Canada are unpredictable.

The most eclectic part of Edmonton, we combined this neighbourhood with a walk through Mill Creek Ravine, for a pleasant Sunday stroll. Maybe not the most cutting edge, but it makes due for Edmonton.

Hard not to find something you like in terms of restaurants on Whyte Ave. I do agree with the other comments about congestion. Very difficult to find parking in the area. And the sense of being safe in the evening has gone away lately. Edmonton...More

White Avenue used to be the safest place on the streets at night. Things have changed over the years. There are some quaint shops there although parking isn't always easy to access. However, White Avenue is a happening place during the Fringe Festival.
