Located in the Kootenay Rockies of southeast British Columbia, nestled in the beautiful embrace of mountains and living on the edge of the river, is the town of Revelstoke in British Columbia. This town was meant for the adventurer and lovers of the great outdoors. Any season, any time of of year, there is something adventurous and sometimes even daring enticing its visitors. Any place that loads up a Helicopter with bicycles and drops the participants off in the mountains you know offers the extreme in sports and outdoor adventures.
If you are not into the extreme or adventurous sports, Revelstoke also offers a quiet place to just kick back and enjoy everything that is good and relaxing in life. Surrounded by stunning landscapes and dotted along the edge of rivers, you cannot help but feel at one with nature and just let the stress flow out of you. Downtown is small and walkable with quaint shops and some great restaurants. There are great trails along the river for a stroll and to just soak up the view and ambience. Fresh mountain air soothes your soul and breath, leaving you relaxed and calm.
Museums, an inside Aquatic Park, theatre, a tour of the Dam, and more offer visitors a variety of touristy attractions and history of the area. Coffee shops, craft bier, and all the Poutine you can eat, tempt your palette.
A great destination to just be reminded of the beautiful things in life. I highly recommend you stop in their Visitor Centre, they were very helpful and full of great information. Pick up maps of the area and just take off and explore. Revelstoke has so much to offer so plan for a lengthy visit.
