A wonderful selection of restaurants and bars. The trees were beautifully lit adding to the atmosphere.

A great place to walk down in the summer. A ton of cool places to eat and stop for drinks. If you like beer, stop at MKT or Situation. Go to Julios and sit on the patio with a Bulldog.

We live in Edmonton but rarely get to fully enjoy all white ave has to offer, so we decided to spent a “weekend on Whyte”. We booked at the Metterra hotel, which was pretty nice, once checked in my wife and I just started walking,...More

Where to stay in Edmonton - summer rental? (11 Replies)
A retired couple driving from North Carolina we plan to home-base in Edmonton, renting a furnished apartment during July, August and September. Figuring we can drive to the area's nature / natural areas, our preference is a neighborhood where day to day we don't have to drive to be among people, where we can entertain ourselves via cafe, bookstore, shop, park, etcetera. Where's the best locale to look? On another forum I saw a reference to Whyte Avenue -- should we focus on that part of town?...More

Why Edmonton? Were I traveling that distance for travel only, I'd be more inclined to be based in Calgary, to be closer to the mountains. However, if you are interested in city life as well, Edmonton is a good base in July and August, because of all the festivals. Assuming you are not reconsidering, the area around Whyte Avenue (Strathcona), or the university is a good choice.

Whyte Ave or Downtown for weekend in January? (12 Replies)
Hi Folks! Myself and hubby are planning a weekend in Edmonton at the end of January. Never been or stayed in Edmonton city centre and not sure which area would be better for us. Can't decide between Whyte Avenue and the downtown location and hope somebody can advise. We'd like a quiet weekend, hoping to do some sightseeing, go to the cinema and/or theater, hopefully have some spa time and maybe even squeeze in some shopping into it. Would love some good food too, the more choice the better. ...More

There's not lots for hotels on Whyte, it's definitely more of a party destination in the evening. It sounds like you would be more comfortable downtown- within walking distance of the Fairmont (or Westin which is also nice) is a mall, the Winspear Centre for Music, the Citadel Theatre, and lots of bars and really good restaurants. The good news is, Whyte ave is a short cab ride or LRT ride from downtown, and you can also take public transport to WEM if you don't have a car. Another mall I'd...More
