What They're Saying...
"A favourite restaurant for Janet Pashleigh of whistler4kids.com and her six year old son Jack is Caramba Restaurante an airy, woodsy restaurant with an Italian Mediterranean flair. "It has great pizzas and pastas and the prices are fairly reasonable," she says adding that kids will also find mac and cheese, calamari and spaghetti and meatballs on the menu. The Whistler Brewhouse offers up an open plan kitchen, great menu and a small train that travels around the bar and restaurant while picky eaters can tuck into a large range of meats and fish, noodles and veggie dishes at the Mongolie Grill. Cheaper alternatives such as the Hot Buns Bakery, Garbanzo Bike and Bean and Zogs offer up everything from paninis to chili dogs to crepes, while in winter families are welcomed in for nachos and other apres ski fare until 7:00 at most of the resort's bars and restaurants."

Discover the greatest playground ever... out of the skis, whistler is a fantastic place to be a kid.
Huge kudos to Watermark Communications, Tourism Whistler and the Resort Municipality of Whistler for putting on another fantastic Holiday Experience at the Telus Conference Centre. What a great opportunity for tourists and locals to get some free, indoor family fun over the holiday break. With the frigid pre-Christmas temperatures, it was an especially welcoming place for the kids to blow off some steam.
Not a day went by that my six-year-old didn't request a visit to bounce around with his pals.. and not a great hardship for us parents as it seemed the social hub of the Village. It was especially nice this year to be able to grab a snack at the café and have the extra seating for chatting with friends.
Thanks again for giving us parents some alternative options to keep the kids entertained - we hope to see you again next year!
