Overview

Whyte Avenue (also known as 82 Avenue) is an arterial road in south-central Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It became the main street of the City of Strathcona as it formed, and now runs through Old Strathcona. It was named in 1891 after Sir William Whyte, who was superintendent of the CPR's western division from 1886 to 1897 and was knighted by King George V in 1911. Old Strathcona is Edmonton's main arts and entertainment district, and is also a shopping hub for local residents and students at the nearby University of Alberta. Whyte Avenue, now a heritage area, is at the heart of this district, housing many shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

Whyte Ave is a quaint little street with lots of restaurants and unique shops. It's a very busy avenue and parking can be hard to find, but it's a great place to walk around and spend some time. It's a very trendy area.

Lots of unique shops and restaurants. However it's very busy and driving can be a nightmare. If you like nightlife, this is Edmonton's main spot. Also the location of various festivals and events. It's definitely one of the better "places" to go in Edmonton, but...More
