The road to Creston - day 2

We left the RV at Crawford Bay to continue on with this beautiful scenic drive that will take you through Sirdar with a pub and general store, on through Wynndel with many berry farms and then leads you onto Creston, B.C.

Historic grain elevators

Creston, B.C. with a population of 5201 is situated at the south end of Highway 3A where Highway 3 and 21 meet. Hwy 21 takes you to the U.S. border 11 km (7 mi) south of town. The Creston Valley also has several dairy farms as well as orchards in this fertile agricultural region, one of the mildest climates in B.C. It proudly boasts these grain elevators, two of few remaining in B.C.

Creston reflections
This pretty little town has much to offer with a diversified economy in tourism, manufacturing, brewing, agriculture and forestry. The downtown has several murals to view as well as a variety of shops to browse through on a lazy summer afternoon,

Mt. Skimmerhorn is a beautiful view from downtown Creston with the sun shining thru the clouds to highlight the beauty of the mountain face. We made more than one trip from Crawford Bay into Creston for our main shopping and had a variety of weather for these trips but the views were great no matter what the weather brought.
