Worth spending a few hours. Check out the market. Lots of restaurants, bars and cultural venues. There are some unique boutiques not found in the malls for shopaholics.
The Saturday market has interesting vendors and lots of opportunities to buy fresh local food, always a plus in my book. BEWARE: Parking can be an issue. You must be sure to use the e-park system if not in the free parking areas. We were visiting from out of province and were not familiar with this system. We needed to... 更多
Most common area of Whyte Ave. Usually some arts folks hanging out outside. Cheap drinks on one side of the street, trendy restaurants and pubs all around. Best part is that here you can do things, like park. The farmer's market is in this area. Some parks (go ride the train to city hall - the old fashioned train in... 更多
There is always something interesting going on in Old Strathcona. New stores are often opening, new restaurants and bars as well, in addition to old favorites. Try to make it down for the Fringe festival or Ice on Whyte, or any of the other festivals that take place here.
I regularly visit this area: so much going on and many interests. There is an indoor farmers market every Sat., so many different businesses on Whyte and area to explore: everything from quaint bistro's and second hand shops to high end boutiques. The restaurants are as varied as the people that you see. When the weather is nice you will... 更多
Ok, I have to say this ... I've never been "wowed" by Edmonton. My brother and family live there, so I have been far more often that I'd ever have imagined. But it has never seemed like a place I could get right with. Then I discovered Whyte Ave (82nd Ave). It is as close to (Toronto's) Queen West as... 更多
Old Strathcona is an absolutely amazing place to take in some of Edmonton's most incredible scenes throughout the year; from the Old Strathcona Farmers Market to the annual Fringe Festival, which this year played host to over 800,000 enthusiastic visitors there is always something making the streets come alive. Definitely a must-see spectacle during the summer should you be a... 更多
I am a huge lover of heritage, especially as it pertains to old buildings. To be honest, my desire to head down to Old Strathcona has waned over the years as more specialty, quaint boutiques have moved out, and the drinking establishments have taken hold. The Market and the live play theatres in the area probably save it for me,... 更多
This area is one of the most interesting in Edmonton and what I like about it is the overall feeling. The city is apparently opening up more areas for al fresco dining and on a warm summer evening the vibe is exciting and relaxed at the same time.
There are some interesting and unique shops here so it's fun to browse even if you don't buy anything. A number of restaurants are located here too -- pretty much something for everyone's tastes and budget
