Creston is a medium-sized town in the West Kootenays, located at the south end of Kootenay Lake in British Columbia, Canada.

Get in[edit]

Creston's welcome sign

Creston is on Hwy 3, the southern route through British Columbia, about an hour west of Cranbrook. It is also just north of the USA/Canada border crossing at Rykerts, BC and Porthill, Idaho.

The easiest way to get here is by private vehicle.

Get around[edit]

The downtown area isn't very big so you can easily walk around there, but the rest of the town is somewhat spread out so a bike or a car can be useful.
