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 street humanized Edmonton for me. It really opened my eyes to the diversity and quality of Edmonton's food and retail scene. The exact opposite to the West Edmonton Mall, this fun, quirky neighbourhood rewards your efforts to explore with unique and amazing retail and...More

Every city should have a Whyte Ave. This area has endless options or great establishments. I wish I was there in the summer

Nightlife, daylife, and a touch of the freaky zone. Love the independent businesses and the colourful vibe
