While You Wait

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.
Get charged with inspiration at the Riverside Centre & Visitor Information while you charge up in Rock Creek. There’s an art gallery and shop featuring work by local artisans. 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.
