Whistler (British Columbia)

The village that serves Whistler-Blackcomb is a magnificent mix of places to eat, hang out and party. Come New Year’s Eve, it’s decorated to celebrate the entire holiday season, and the bars are loaded with youthful partygoers—the drinking age is just 19 in British Columbia, after all. Spots such as Moe Joe’s and Garfinkels shine for those in the mood to dance and enjoy the bottle service scene. Families will enjoy an alcohol-free event in the village (tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for kids, free for 12 and under) that includes the legendary Fire & Ice ski jumping display, ice skating, dancing, food and a midnight fireworks show.
