On Saturdays throughout the summer my husband and I like to "patio crawl" and Whyte Ave is one of the best locations to do it. The area is hopping with people, great shops and great restaurants. We hit a patio, share an appy and have a drink and move on to find the next patio and repeat. It's a fun... More

A great place to go fo a walk and checkout the Strathcona Farmers Market (closes as 3pm) or just walk and check out the many interesting and unique stores along Whyte. Great way to spend an afteroon, stop at any of the great bars and/or restaurants. Parking is best near the Farmers Market

This vibrant street is full of life... When we came to have a conference, we stopped by this street before we head home. It was the week of sand art exhibit. There was a lot of people walking and enjoying the beautiful day. This street reminds me of downtown New York, Soho area where people walk around pavement while enjoying... More

There are nice shops and restaurants along Whyte and 104th street. It's convivial especially during the day and week nights, at week ends, it can get a bit rowdy in some areas.

Funky stores and people. Nice alternative to the West Edmonton Mall and usual shopping. Farmers Market was a nice find.

Restaurants, kiosks, gift shops, book stores, a movie theatre and a nearby public library all within walking distance. Many young people from the university gather there. Unfortunately, The Marble Slab (ice cream parlour) was emptied though there are other branches in the city. I enjoy the atmosphere and convenience.

I only had 2 days in Edmonton and heard that Old Strathcona in Whyte Ave was a unique and inspiring area to shop, walk and eat. This very attractive area offered entertainment at night, such as bars, real live music, live theatre and dinning. I can't exactly remember the wonderful casual middle-eastern restaurants name but clearly and often reflect on... More

I walked around Whyte avenue after taking the High Level Streetcar from downtown Edmonton. On a sunny day, it's a great way to spend time. There's lots of little boutiques and shops, as well as large-name outdoor cafés and restaurants. Worth a trip if you need to buy gifts or souvenirs, or want a nice place to get lunch!

Whyte has such a wonderful feel, and has remained my favourite part of Edmonton for over 20 years. Walking and browsing the many unique shops, sitting and sipping coffee or a pint while people watching, or even just enjoying some of the same-old places always makes me happy.
