Kokanee Mountain Zipline
Tourist attraction
👍👍 I cannot put into words how incredible our experience was. Party of 5, all first timers, left with an incredible amount of ever lasting memories. My 8 year old son, who lead the way the whole time, already wants to return. If you haven't been here, or thinking of returning. JUST DO IT! We travelled...

Frog Peak Cafe image
Frog Peak Cafe
👍👍 Local residents may not want this gem to become too well known as I can imagine that they want to keep it to themselves. I was recommended to the Frog Peak Cafe by friends in Castlegar who regularly make the pilgrimage to this delicious Mecca. I’m visiting from the west coast and can attest that t...

Oso Negro Café
😠 I wanted to love this place so much. It is so cute and seems to be so so popular. Unfortunately the coffee/cappuccino was some of the worst we’ve ever had…the coffee was incredibly weak and the milk and foam honestly horrendous…sorry to say this, but the girls behind the counter were super friendly...

Marzano image
Italian restaurant
🫤 I gave this a 2 instead of 5 for dinner only because we were told that we had to vacate our table after having dinner and drinks as the table was reserved for another group. This was only after being seated for 90 minutes. A 90 minute turnover is unreasonable...if the table had a limited sitting t...

U'mista Cultural Centre
👍👍 One of the top Indigenous cultural centres I’ve ever been. Up there with the Haida in Sandspit. Amazing First Nation pieces presented in a stunning space. Moving. Sad. Beautiful. Educational. It’s all there. Highly recommend visiting it.

👍 This is a beautiful place to explore. There is a long lakeside path to enjoy. There are plenty of benches along the route to rest and enjoy the sights. The path is paved, level, and well kept. The park is very accessible to persons with mobility concerns. Easy for any wheelchair. Dogs must be...

🫤 I never really post negative comments. but, i have to. I have been traveling throughout the world, i was lucky to ski in most of the biggest ski resort in the world, i'm not gonna lie, 115$ for a day pass at whitewater is a scam. compared to RED close by and their installation the road isn't paved a...

Fruit and vegetable store
👍 I love this place. It’s located in Creston.This place has a larger range of fruits. The most interesting part is the “TASTER”S. It’s a fresh juice stand where you get taste varieties of juices so you can pick ur favorite before purchasing, i think it’s a very good initiative. I loved the Cherry ju...

👍👍 Wow, what a great choice for a lunch stop. The food is delicious with good smoke flavors. The beer list is strictly regional and amazing. And the bourbon selection is small, but amazing. We'll be back!

Tim's Fish & Chips image
Tim's Fish & Chips
Fish & chips restaurant
🫤 My recent experience at Tim's Fish and Chips in Creston was quite disappointing, to say the least. We arrived at the restaurant promptly at 7:30 PM, which left us with only half an hour before their closing time at 8:00 PM. However, our initial impression of the place was not very welcoming. The you...

Fletcher Creek Falls Recreation Site image
Fletcher Creek Falls Recreation Site
👍👍 Fantastic falls with spectacular views! Nice little walk down to the falls. We did it in flip flops and slides (not recommended but doable) because we didn't know it was a quick little hike down and back up. So worth the time! Can picnic on the beach as well. Has a little outhouse and picnic tables....

The Black Cauldron image
The Black Cauldron
👍👍 The Black Cauldron is a great Sunday date night spot - huge patio in the back and lots of mocktail/cocktail options to try. The theme is clever, but the flavour was right on. Don't be turned off by the strange sounding ingredients - the egg white is whipped into a meringue and really tasty! Desserts...
