Creston Wildlife, Winery, and Pub, Creston, BC, Canada


We did a variety of things today after getting a late start chatting with friends in the campground. The first place we went to was the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area (CVWMA) where for $3 per person, you can walk along their trails and enjoy a variety of wildlife, mostly birds. We were a bit late for the majority of their birds, but did get to see a Blue Heron, a few ducks, and some other birds. It was a nice place, and we'd recommend going, but only if in Creston earlier than the end of August.

We then went to get lunch at Creston's first winery ~ Skimmerhorn Winery & Vineyard, but were too late. We did spent some time trying their wines, and were happily surprised how much we enjoyed them! They had a nice pinot gris, pinot rose, and a pinot noir (they had 4 whites, 1 rose, and 2 reds). We were told that a few more wineries will be in the area within the next few years, so if you enjoy wines, this may be the place to come!

Since we missed lunch at the winery, we heard form a few locals that Jimmy's Pub & Grill at the Creston Hotel was a good place to eat, so there we went! We were not disappointed at all! It's non-smoking, casual, and had a variety of items on their menu. Brad had fish & chips with a Caesar salad - all very good, and Suzanne had chicken quesadillas - probably one of the best she's had! If you head to Creston, this is definitely the place to eat!

We leave tomorrow, but continue to say how friendly all of the people in Creston are - we were impressed at each and every turn!
