Greenwood (population 625) is Canada's smallest city.
People come to see its historic sites and to take driving tours around the area to glimpse its mining and railroad heritage. Mountain biking is popular along the Trans Canada Trail and outdoor enthusiasts enjoy swimming, canoeing or kayaking, fishing and camping in nearby provincial parks.
Stay at accommodations such as a cosy motel or B&B and dine in the heritage Windsor Hotel (which made an appearance in the movie Snow Falling on Cedars).
Canada's Smallest City
Without even a stop sign to slow traffic, people driving through on the main thoroughfare, Copper Street/Highway 3, feel compelled to pull over for a look around. The remarkably well preserved commercial buildings and homes that cluster around its compact centre immediately beam people back to a turn-of-the-20th century mining boom town.
