On a Saturday in Nakusp

It is very beautiful and peaceful at Serenity Views, but venturing into the Village of Nakusp is also a great experience.  Here are some ideas for trip to town on a Saturday:

Nakusp Farmer's Market Sign

Each Saturday from May to October,  there is a Farmer’s Market, where you can find all sorts of crafts, jewellery, baking, plants, produce and even music. Down the road from the market, visit Home Grown Market and Juice Bar which features organic produce. There are several other interesting stores in Nakusp, mostly along the main street (Broadway), but taking the side streets will bring you to a chocolate shop, an art gallery, and other unique shops.

A trip to town must include a walk along the waterfront walkway where you can see all sorts of flowers in bloom. Grab a coffee from one of the coffee shops and enjoy the gorgeous views!  If you feel like taking a dip in the Arrow Lake, there is a beautiful sandy, public beach at the west end of the waterfront walkway.

The Nakusp Visitor Centre is also a great place to visit while in town, if you need maps and directions, and other ideas for activities!

Nakusp Summer Events

It is so peaceful and quiet at Serenity Views that it is hard to leave sometimes.  However, a trip into the Village of Nakusp is just a 5 minute drive away, and is worth the effort.  Below are some of the activities happening this summer.

Vendor at Nakusp Farmers' MarketFarmers’ Market – Each Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., there is a gathering of artists, bakers, jam makers, farmers and jewellery makers who set up their tables and spread out their wares.  As well as being able to buy fresh fruits and veggies, there are many unique items on display.  Be sure to visit the Farmers’ Market if you are in Nakusp on a Saturday morning! 

Music in the Park at NakuspMusic in the Park – On Wednesday evenings, there is live music at the gazebo in the park across from the public beach in town.  This is a free event running from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.  Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and enjoy the music in a beautiful location!

Kuskanax Creek Foot Bridge Grand Opening CelebrationGrand Opening of the Kuskanax Creek Foot Bridge – On Saturday, August 17th, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., there will be a celebration at the Nakusp Hot Springs.  The new bridge across the Kuskanax is finally finished and open to visitors!!  The grand opening includes two bands playing in various locations, as well as food vendors and a beer tent.  There will be free shuttle buses running during this time from the Nakusp Arena, as parking will be at a minimum. 

If you are unable to attend the grand opening events, be sure to visit the bridge when you come to Nakusp.  It is just a short walk from the Nakusp Hot Springs parking lot, and leads to a trail going to the source of the hot springs.

These are just a few of the summer activities in Nakusp that we hope our guests will take advantage of!
