Whyte Avenue, Edmonton

3.8
#1 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Alberta
If you fancy a spot of shopping, and like a busy atmosphere, then head to Whyte Avenue. The bustling strip is packed with many boutique shops that cater to all tastes, and is great for souvenir hunting. This bohemian area also harbors a variety of restaurants, and once night falls, a rambunctious bar and night club scene awakens. If you're visiting over the weekend, consider checking out the farmer's market on Saturdays for some unique items.

Where to stay in Edmonton

For access to the best entertainment options and proximity to the North Saskatchewan River and the parks surrounding it, you can't beat Downtown's accommodations. Look near the intersection of Jasper Avenue and 100 Street NW--you'll be right next to Central metro station and just a few minutes' walk from the riverside park. If you're after nightlife and cafe culture, look south of the river in Strathcona, or in the neighboring student hub of Garneau. You can also choose from a large selection of accommodations farther out in West Edmonton.
