    Whistler Village/Town Plaza/Olympic Center ... it's all the same (awesome) thing
    Our day trip via Epic bus from Vancouver deposited us within spitting distance of the Town Plaza, Olympic Plaza, etc. but, in all honesty, this is a pretty small piece of geography. Not wanting to split hairs, it is mere steps from one point to another and all the others. And so, here it is: Whistler Village's various named off-shoots are all parts of Whistler's Village. Enjoy the adventure, eat and shop and explore. The Town Plaza is the main area upon arrival. But do adventure out to visit walking destinations (like Lost Lake) and follow your nose. The Whistler Village is small enough that folks cannot get lost unless they really, really work at it.

    Ski village life
    We made a day trip to Whistler from Vancouver just to hang out and enjoy life in the ski village. The buzz and atmosphere felt like any other ski village despite the miserable weather. In the main square itself, there’s a plaque of all the paralympian medalists from the 2010 games and also the Canadian medalists which helps add a special feeling to the village.

    Take your pic with the Olympic rings
    There wasn't much going on in the plaza during our stay, however it is a pretty area with a playground and a large grassy area good for kids and dogs to run around. It's a nice place to sit if you have some take-out food. The entire village is beautiful, and there are the Olympic rings which make for great photos.

The wide, pedestrian-only streets and well placed parking and terrific shopping and dining options are terrific. Whistler may be our new favorite Rocky Mountain resort town.

The Olympic Plaza is located in the heart of Whistler and it is a pretty little village with a host of restaurants & shops. The centre point is the olympic rings from the time Whistler hosted the Winter Olympics.

We visit in the winter and Olympc Plazza is always beautifully decorated. There is plenty going on, with kids sledding and ice skating, music and lights. A great winter scene.

This area is wonderful. Great place for a photo next to the Olympic Rings. Walk over the short stone bridge to view the little river.

The Olympic Plaza is in the heart of Whistler and it is a wonderful little Olympic village- abundant with restaurants, shops and great places to people watch. The pinnacle is the olympic rings centerpiece.
