Whistler Village - Where Fun Never Stops
If you're Whistler getaway is all about non-stop fun, you have to stay in where the fun never stops: Whistler Village. The village is where it all happens in Whistler, from free outdoor concerts with bands like Broken Social Scene to a dance club scene that attracts the world's best DJs and MCs. And with festivals like the TELUS World Ski & Snowboard Festival and Crankworx bringing in entertainment from around the world, there is always new sounds to be heard in this awesome mountain setting.
Enjoy Whistler night life on foot
The biggest advantage of staying in Whistler Village is that you can quickly walk anywhere. (The interior village walkways are pedestrian only.) There's absolutely no need to drive. And with BC's new drinking and driving restrictions, it's way better to be safe than sorry - especially with "sorry" meaning a blood alcohol rate of .05 or one drink. Why stay at your aunt's time-share at the other end of town and risk it?
Tips on staying steps away from The best clubs, pubs & bars
While life is lived in Whistler on the slopes and the golf greens during the day, at night the village's dozens of clubs, pubs, bars and restaurants come alive. The fun can kick off with après at one of Whistlers great heated patios, continue over some amazing regional cuisine, move over to a pub for a set by a local singer-songwriter and end the night one of Whistler's many night clubs - all within a block or two of your hotel's lobby. (Checkout the entertainment sections of Pique and The Whistler Question for what's happening.)
Taking advantage of staying in the heart of the action doesn't have to mean a heart-attack hotel bill, if you look into affordable options. And if you're coming to Whistler for the party, spending extra dollars for an in-house spa or 24-hour room service that you're not going to use just doesn't make sense.
