Whyte ave has a lot of unique shops and unique restaurants that are one of a kind. I love that there is such a wide variety of restaurants. Its a good walk if you go down both sides. Chiantis, and vons are some damn good food options :)

It's a shame this street is so grungy. Some quant shops like the flying pig but this street seemed very dirty. Would not feel safe at night. Needs to be cleaned up. Considering there is a police station close there was no one walking the street. Poor for such a big city!

Whyte Ave feels like downtown without being downtown. Must see in the summertime when the festivals are going on. Love the unique stores showcasing local art & culture. Awesome year round night life too.

this avenue is really nice, it has lots and lots of shops and bookstores, it is really quiet if you go early in the morning and you can enjoy a nice breakfast but it can get really crowded and noisy on weekends and in the middle of the day. the traffic is starting to be a problem since is one...

Whyte Ave is one of Edmonton's hot spots, has been for quite awhile. Whether your just going for a walk, lunch on a patio, or enjoying the nightlife after dark...always something to do or see on Whyte Ave. During the summer they have the Fringe, or just vendors on the sidewalk selling interesting items...always a good time!

Interesting part of town, definitely worth a visit. Some quaint and unique shops and bars. The traffic and road noise ruins the ambiance. Outdoor dining uncomfortable.

Trendy eateries, unique shops and fashion finds. Blues on Whyte is iconic with some incredible bands going through. If you like walking streets with great stop-ins on each block - this is it. Don't miss Dadio's for sweet potato fries (closed on Wed.)

If you have only a day or 2 , include a trip down 82 Ave. Favorite places are the Princess theater, Tavern on Whyte ( great patio hidden in back and the Elephant and Castle pub.

love all the neat little shops along the Ave, at times they have neat little shows going on, it gets a little busy, hard to find parking but it was a neat visit to see everything
