Old Strathcona Mall I really enjoyed this store so many antiques and items to look at it is a trip down memory lane for the older people and young as well. Just browsing this store takes about an hour or more it is so huge. I like the fact that the staff leave you to explore but seem to turn... More

Old Strathcona is very different if you visit during the day or at night - enjoyed both. The saturday market is a must in the... More

many quaint shops and stores. Wide variety of foods and restaurants. Many theaters and live entertainment. Best viewed during the day time, but area is alive many evenings, especially during events such as the "Fring Festival", as well as on Friday and Saturday evenings

A nice area to wander around as it takes you away from the industrial and suburbanized scene that is becoming Edmonton. Recommend a visit to the market.

Is nice just to walk around and to see this part of the... More

What used to be a vibrant, fun area to live and visit has turned into a commercial area that has lost its charm and uniqueness. The area no longer feels like a community but just another business area where local businesses have been replaced by chains. The quaint coffee houses are now Starbucks and the restaurants are no longer family... More

My wife and I spent a few hours window shopping and ate at Julio's Barrio here. There wasn't as much to do as I expected, but good for an hour or two - interesting shopping, with almost no major chain stores.

Active, warm, inviting atmosphere. Combines historic Edmonton with modern amenities, neat shops, lots of restaurant choices. Excellent parking facilities. Disliked the vehicle traffic
