WHERE IS CRANBROOK

Cranbrook, British Columbia is a beautiful, thriving city of about 20,000 people in southeastern BC, just a short distance from the United States border. The forested region boasts of many pristine water lakes and rivers, mountain trails, golfing, and other outdoor recreation.

WHAT TO DO IN CRANBROOK

Cranbrook is a diverse community, that was founded in aboriginal history, and gold rush fever that brought colourful characters like Jack Fisher, Colonel Baker, and Sam Steele to fill the pages of history. Today, Cranbrook flourishes as a small modern city that is a hub of the Eastern Kootenays providing shopping, sports, arts, and recreation for many.
