Main Street Cafe: Our favorite breakfast spot in Revelstoke! It’s family-run, right in the heart of downtown, located in a quaint little home, and has incredible eggs benedict. Don’t miss it. (@main_street_cafe)

Quartermaster Eatery: Outstanding food, service, presentation, and style. Everything is natural and organic, and made in-house, from scratch. It’s some of the best fine dining in the area!

Bobby’s pick: Thai Halibut
Alli’s pick: Saffron Risotto
Monashee Spirits Distillery: We loved this family-run craft distillery and cocktail lounge so much, we went every night before or after dinner! Their mixologists are well-versed and fun to watch, and their Caesar (the drink, not the salad) is the best in Revelstoke! Oh, and best part is - dogs are welcome inside (as long as they’re well behaved)! (@monasheespirits)
The Regent Hotel: This quaint hotel is not only walkable to most shops and restaurants, but serves a great buffet breakfast every morning too! Their rooms are bright and cheery, the staff is friendly and helpful, and best of all - they’re dog-friendly! (@theregent.hotel)
Explorers Society: Next time we head to Revelstoke, we’re excited to stay here. This 9-room boutique hotel has chic and modern rooms, a picturesque rooftop guest lounge, and they’re home to one of the best restaurants in town (Quartermaster Eatery)! (@explorerssocietyhotel)
The Sutton Place Hotel: If you’re heading to Revelstoke to ski/snowboard, this is where you’ll want to stay. It’s the only ski-in, ski-out hotel in town, and it boasts tons of amenities, restaurants, and every room is a suite. Great for families! (@suttonplacehotels)
Ride the Pipe Mountain Coaster: Skiing or snowboarding is a given if you’re heading to Revelstoke in the winter, but if you’re coming in the summer, the Pipe Mountain Coaster is a MUST! It’s 1.4 km ride down the mountain, swerving through trees and ski runs, and traveling up to 42km/hour! The ride is well worth $20!
Walk/Shop downtown Revelstoke: Walk along Mackenzie Ave, where there’s dozens of cute boutiques, cafes, bakeries, and more! If you’re there in the summer, check out their Summer Street Festival, where they have live music every night in Grizzly Plaza!
Hike to Begbie Falls: This 3.1 mile trail is just five minutes south of Revelstoke, and is a perfect way to get some exercise - and see a beautiful waterfall!
Hike to Nels Nelsen Ski Jump Sculpture: This hike will take you to an incredible scenic overlook of downtown Revelstoke and beyond. The coolest part is that you can stand in a ski jump sculpture and look down on the view as if you had just launched off a ski jump ramp. This hill was a famous ski jumping hill in the 1900s where many world records were set, and is named after one of the best, Nels Nelsen.
Ski or Snowboard: Revelstoke is famous for their incredible mountains. We hope to come back for some snowboarding in the near future, as locals told us it is one of the best places to get “Revelstuck” in the winter.
Revelstoke is extremely dog friendly - Sally loved it! The Regent Hotel was the perfect place for us to stay with her, as it was walking distance to just about everything. Just remember - most restaurant patios in Canada do not allow dogs!
