A Village Like no Other

Whistler Village was a great place to watch the people.
It's almost like Disneyland this time of year.
Such a great place to bring families in summer, as the hotel rates are cheaper.
The streets are filled with music, aromas, cold beer.
People dance in the street and totally unwind here.
Lots of nice shops with everything your heart desires.
Taste the Italian gelato mmmmm delicious.
and for the kids there is the Cow place where you get an Ice cream and be able to sit on a cow.
The hotels and restaurants are dog friendly.
If I didn't know better I'd call it pooch town.
The old dogs know the routine and just walk along while the young ones find everything so cool and new
They hop around with excitement taking this all in, as a real treat.
Some people bring in pups in training to become service dogs and they don't know they are being trained
and play like the babies they are. Sooo sweet.
The mountains are every where and some are still and always snow peaked.
I can't even begin to relate how beautiful it all is.
Summer is the time to get out the bikes and ride the gondola up Blackcomb Mountain
and do some serious riding down hill.
Needless to say it's mostly a guy sport although I did see some women doing it too.
You have to be all geared up in protective padding like hockey players because if you fall, thats some serious
trouble you are looking at.
But there are other things to do. The night life is spectacular and safe for both young and old.
No generation gap here folks.
The kids have lots of water to play in
And you never know what you will see next.lol
It was a great end to a summer and I'll put up more pics with little stories which made it special for us.

I make it a policy to only use hotels that are pet friendly.
Sounds like a village.

Life 101 - Yes it's very pet friendly.
Even when you sit at the restaurants the dogs sit with you. I find this quite wonderful.

As I was reading this I kept going back and forth to the photo. It really looks like a fun and relaxing atmosphere! Wish we had something like this close by. We'll have the grandchildren this week and it's supposed to be much cooler. A little village to wander like this one would be perfect! I look froward to hearing more. Love Di ♥

Diana It is a lovely place to visit.
Every city should have a place like this for people to go to. It's a great place for all generations to meet and enjoy together.
