Where are we going today?

The past lives and breathes at Fort Steele Heritage Town. Perched on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains since it's gold rush beginnings in 1864, the village has gone from boomtown to regional centre to ghost town to one of the most important heritage attractions of its kind in British Columbia. Enjoy old-time farming demonstrations, ice-cream making, train rides and horse-drawn wagon tours. Try gold panning, watch live theatre performances and observe the museum displays. Or simply enjoy the view in a Kootenay Rockies setting.

    What a wonderful heritage town! A lot of fun! The actors put on little mini-performances a different places in town throughout the day, as though "moments in the life of"; it's very entertaining. Pretty good food. You can really spend a while day there wandering, watching and interacting. Thank you!

    I thought I would spend a short period of time here, but I ended spending a few hours exploring the buildings and having an excellent lunch at the International Hotel. The tour was also entertaining and informative.

    I went in the Fall and apparently it's even more interesting in the Summer months.
