Rugged Rocky Mountain peaks, more than 2,500 hours of sunshine annually, freshwater lakes and rivers plus a new airport with frequent flight connections to Calgary, Vancouver and Kelowna: the twin towns of Cranbrook and Kimberley are ready for takeoff.
Located at the junction of three major highways, Cranbrook has the Canadian Rockies International Airport, the College of the Canadian Rockies, 10 public schools and two private schools.
A half-hour up the road, Kimberley has been reinventing itself since the closure of the Sullivan Mine in the 1990s, but its Bavarian-style platzl main street is a nice place to quaff a cold one on a sunny summer day.
Work: Cranbrook and Kimberley are ready to roll out the red carpet for entrepreneurs.
Play: Several outstanding 18-hole championship golf courses are nearby, including Trickle Creek, St. Eugene and Wildstone.
Culture: The St. Eugene Resort and Casino marks the successful transformation from an Indian Residential School into a positive healing environment and internationally renowned resort.
