|About these ratings|
Part of what makes Whistler such a popular place to visit is the sense of community — and Whistler Village is where it all comes together. Located at the foot of Whistler Blackcomb Mountain and home to dozens of lodging choices, the village is a place where visitors and locals alike come to meet and mingle. Pedestrians can saunter along the Village Stroll, which is lined with ski and snowboard shops and boutiques, or pop in to one of the many restaurants and bars in the area. Another main draw of Whistler Village is the Olympic Plaza, where Olympic and Paralympic mementos sit on display and a playground and art installations pay tribute to the 2010 Winter Games. During the winter, the plaza makes way for an outdoor public ice skating rink; during the summer the Olympic Plaza plays host to an outdoor concert series, with weekly entertainment filling the streets of Whistler with arts festivals, demonstrations and dance performances.
No matter the season, the Whistler Village calendar is full of activities that captivate everyone around. You can check the Whistler tourism board's online calendar of events to learn more about what's going on during your visit.
