Sometimes Whyte is safe, and sometimes pretty sketchy. Just be aware of your surroundings. The Whyte worth seeing is between 109 street and just about 99 street. Remember to also visit the shops and interest points one avenue south and one avenue north of Whyte including the side streets. Artifacts is worth visiting even if it's in a closing phase due to retirement. Be adventurous in searching for a good meal. After dark, be wary of crowds around bars as they are outside smoking and often turn rowdy, even violent. Stratchcona market is crowded and somewhat worth visiting for all the fresh produce. The Junk Cellar is a downstairs' antiques and junk store that is so interesting, give yourself an hour to look through it. The Vietnamese Sandwich restaurant is so small you might miss it. Great food. And then there's Burlington tobacconist with specialty tobacco blends, a huge walk-in humidor, and pipes galore in a "bar" setting with very knowledgeable staff. So, all in all, Whyte is worth the visit, just keep your eyes open.
