Modelled after a Bavarian city, Kimberley boasts a central pedestrian plaza, replete with boutique shops and a giant cuckoo clock. The ambiance is fun and friendly. Food, culture, and recreation are primary. Once a mining town, an underground railway takes visitors into a historic mine site. There is a championship golf course, acres of carefully cultivated and fragrant gardens, plus the family-oriented Kimberley Ski Resort. Cyclists can enjoy the paved Northstar Rails to Trails, a paved 25km multi-use trail that is part of the TransCanada Trail. Kimberley has a quaint, local appeal, four distinct seasons, plenty of things to do and an overall carefree approach to the good things in life.
