There may not be a better end to the perfect day than sitting in the sun on a patio, sipping and nibbling on the finest. We in Whistler take our patio time very seriously. After all, you have to have some way to unwind after all the activity! Often, the unwinding requires a certain setting, a relaxing oasis of sorts that encourages chatter about the day’s activities and a mindfulness of one’s beautiful surroundings. With a collection of these types of patios right here in town, we have gathered up a list of Whistler’s Secret Patios for you to enjoy when the sun is setting.
