Get into the Old West in Greenwood
You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into High Noon in Greenwood, known as “Canada’s smallest city” (pop. 665) and the movie set for Snow Falling on Cedars. A booming copper-ore frontier hot spot in 1895, the village main street is lined with vintage storefronts, including the library, city hall, and museum.
Join Friday-night bingo at the community centre, linger over drinks at the old-time saloon and, if it’s open, overnight at the heritage Windsor Hotel. Take a day trip east to the old mining ghost town Phoenix and then on to Rock Creek, where you can pan and shovel for gold flakes at Canyon Creek Ranch. Every July, the working ranch hosts a Cowboy Campfire showcasing Western music and cowpoke poetry.
