One of the cities that is on my bucket list of places to visit soon is Whistler, Canada. I think that this place is absolutely perfect for a vacation spot because it has everything that my family and I could possibly want in a vacation spot.
They have something for kids, teenagers, foodies, adventure seekers, and they definitely have Instagram-worthy places. This guarantees that my kids won't be bored, the husband won't be bored, and I would have a lot of materials to write about.
Don't believe me? Let me tell you the 5 reasons why I believe Whistler is the perfect vacation spot for my family and possibly, yours too.
For my toddler, this would be the perfect time for him to learn how to ski. It's a good thing that the Magic Castle & Fort has kid friendly activities. It is located on located on Blackcomb in the Children's Adventure Park above the base of the Catskinner Chair; accessible via Easy Out.

This place is perfect for outdoor play because they have big areas that provide a little magic for families to explore while taking a break from skiing and snowboarding. Families can explore these outdoor adventure playlands 100 percent free. Isn't that amazing?
For my teenage son, we can go and visit the Brandywine Falls Provincial Park. This magnificent 70 metre waterfall will definitely present him with a lot of Instagram worthy shots. From a certain vantage point, we'd also be able to see the Daisy Lake and the surrounding mountains.

We can also go mountain biking, have a picnic, or go hiking in the lava trail lake. There are so many activities that we can do, it will definitely take more than a day to try them all.
For myself, I would definitely head for the Scandinave Spa. After all, this is vacation so I believe that I deserve some down time, we all do.

Just looking at the photo is already very relaxing. I'd book massages for my husband and I. This is also the perfect time for us to have some quiet time away from the kids since the Scandinave Spa is a quiet spa and no talking is allowed as well as no gadgets. Perfect way to disconnect and just have some truly quiet moments which parents almost always never have.
Knowing my husband, he will want some recreational activities after all this quiet time. We'd head over to experience the Whistler Peak 2 Peak 360 experience so he can have a stunning 360 view of Whistler Village. From this vantage point, we should also be able to see the glaciers, forests, lakes, and mountain peaks.

What makes this gondola experience even more exciting is the special glass bottom gondola which will definitely give us a bird's eye view of the forest. I'm sure he would love to take photos of this experience.
Just looking at the photo is making me experience all kinds of excitement and nervousness. This is definitely something that needs to be included as an activity if going to Whistler, Canada. You get to have an experience like no other which is important for people going on vacation.
To top it off, there are so many great restaurants and cafes in Whistler that the foodie in all of us would definitely want to go and try everything out. Top of my list is RimRock Cafe because I have heard so much about this place.

It's definitely going to be an experience for my family and I which will be one for the books. Great ambiance, wonderful food, and something different from what we are used to.
Just looking at my itinerary for this soon to be vacation, I can't help but wonder if there would be Whistler homes for sale. After all, my husband and I have been talking about future plans and Whistler looks like a great spot to raise kids.
One can dream right? For now, I'll go ahead and save enough so that I can make our perfect vacation spot a reality.
