While You Wait
Stretch your legs and come explore our towns and trails while your car charges. Visit one of our local eateries and fuel up on local fare while your car is charging. Or stretch your legs and explore some of our great walking and hiking trails.
Charge up at the Red Rock Garage on Hwy 33 in Beaverdell. While you’re waiting take a relaxing hike on the Trans Canada Trail. Access to the trail is visible from the main street, making it easy to commune with nature. From June to October there’s also the self-guided walking tour to the rainbow trout habitat. Choose from one, two or three trails. Give yourself an hour for all three. When you’re done grab a pizza or some ice cream at Marley’s Ice Cream and Pizza Parlour.
You’ll get a charge out of Rags, Relics and Rutabagas when you charge up in Rock Creek. It’s the place with the laundry hanging outside on the line! The owner is an avid historian and she’ll have plenty of tales to tell. If you are there in the Fall, make sure you take in the Boundary Fall Fair. In the summer there are music festivals to keep your toes tapping while your car is charging.
You don’t have to go far to find something to do when you charge your car in Midway. The charging station is at the Midway Museum on Hwy 3. It’s a short 15-minute walk down to the banks of the Kettle River from the Museum. A great way to relax and recharge as your electric car recharges too.
The electric charging station is located at the Visitor Centre in the Greenwood Museum. Learn about how the town held more than 1,200 Japanese-Canadians during World War II. Greenwood is steeped in the enduring culture of the detainees. Stroll the main street and get a photo under a mural or stop for a meal and have a chat with the locals.
The charging station at Christina Lake is at the Visitor Centre. Take a stroll through the Christina Lake Living Arts Centre. Visual arts, summer workshops, classes and concert series all happen at the Centre. There are plenty of events here year round too. Ask about the best trails nearby so you can stretch your legs. There are several in and around the lake that will have you thinking you should stay for a while.
There are two charging stations in Grand Forks. One at R.B. Mechanical at 7436 Donaldson Drive and the other at Grand Forks City Hall at 7217 4th Street. There are several restaurants in the area where you can grab a bite to eat while you wait. Head over to Kettle River Drive and take a walk along the Kettle River, or have a picnic in City Park.
