The views of the city and the river from this trolley car are absolutely amazing. This is also the best way to get from the farmer's market to downtown.

This is a great affordable side trip, especially if you are visiting the Strathcona Market. The ride offers a beautiful view of the river valley.

Nice ride from Edmonton downtown via the Highlevelbrige, where you have a great view, to Strathcona. Visit the White Avenue for some shopping, a coffee or a beer!

Streetcar is fun but I found to short of a ride. It would be better if it further around the City with stops all over. Just my opinion but it was ok

Only $6 and you can take a round trip ride on an old restored streetcar, it's particularly enjoyable on Saturdays when the old strathcona market is on and/or during events held on whyte avenue. It can be quite busy so I'd arrive early in advance of its departing time.

Lovely street car rescued and refurbished run by volunteers who were able to tell you some history, may be a microphone needed as we were unable to hear clearly due to the sound of the car running.
