This area on the south side of Edmonton is truly an interesting visit. Walking down Whyte Avenue, looking at the old buildings, the very interesting and uniques stores is a great summer treat (nice weather for walking). There are people playing instruments, lots of out door seating areas, lots of people to watch and the shopping is terrific. I believe... More

Exploring the quirky but pleasant length of Old Strathcona took me back in many ways to the small town Alberta I knew from my day's in Wainwright, Elks point and St Paul. Alberta architecture and friendly people with a good non-chain used book store to browse and enjoy. Strongly recommend if you want some calmer peace of mind in Edmonton.

Lots of interesting, unique and fun shops to visit. the farmers market is incredible. I... More

This is a good place to do some walking when the weather is good. It gets a little cold during the winter, but I still like walking here on warmish days in the winter. You get one off stores here that you can't get in the shopping malls. Day times are the best for families. Too much drinking and partying... More

This is where the U of A students and residents of Strathcona area hang . There is something happening every night but especially on the weekends and holidays. This past Halloween the streets and bars were packed with costume clad revelers. The area has no end of bars and restaurants. My favorite restaurant in that area is Von's

Our kids live in the Old Strathcona section of Edmonton, so we've done a bit of exploring while visiting. Old Strathcona is an historic district located in south-central Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Once the commercial core of the separate city of Strathcona, the area is now Edmonton's main arts and entertainment district. The district centres on Whyte Avenue and has shops,... More
