I lived here between 2000 - 2004, then again between 2010-2011. Back in the early millenium, safety was not an issue. But everywhere you go or live, you take your own risk. Risk is what I took but fun was what I left behind.
I don't think there's enough room in this box to describe the atmosphere of this avenue. I will have to describe in point form: lots of restaurants, bistro, bars to choose from and experience. lots of different type of music playing in variety of venue. lots of different and rare store/shops you will never find anywhere else. did i say pubs & nightlife? you sit in one of the benches along the sidewalk and your day will be entertained with the different character you get to witness. festivals (the frienge, ice festival etc). the place to be. surrounded by lots of mature large trees to hug and get energy that you will need to experience this place. hotels and did i say restaurants? north of whyte ave is saskatchewan drive which overlooks the river and nice night lights - amazing trails around. The best thing about this place is the genuine and friendly faces of Edmonton - young or old.
