Get in

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

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.
