There are so many things to do in Kimberley BC & area that attempting to summarize all those things in one place is a bit of a daunting (and probably impossible) task. Especially if you only moved to town in the summer of 2016. Expect this page / site to grow and evolve as my localness grows and evolves, but maybe you don't have time to wait for my slow blogging feet to get around to everything before your next visit. Fair point.
I've attempted to accumulate everything I can think of below (and will continue to update), so get your scrolling finger out and head downwards for my incomplete guide to making the most of your time in beautiful Kimberley British Columbia.
FREE PARKING AND FREE INFORMATION
If you're coming to Kimberley for the first time, your first move should be finding a spot in the big & free Platzl Parking Lot and making your way over to the tourist information building. There is always a friendly and knowledgeable person located inside, plus all kinds of maps and pamphlets to get you started. No matter what your plans are, you'll want to pick up a GO KIMBERLEY magazine as those come with local maps and local info and are updated quarterly.
If you haven't already, you should also check out Tourism Kimberley for a wide assortment of useful info & tips on the area. At this point you'll probably want to grab a coffee on the Platzl and figure out what the next best move will be.

THINGS I CAN PERSONALLY RECOMMEND…
Since I just moved to town, my 'To Do List' is much bigger than my 'Done List'. The plan is to eventually have a blog post for each of the endless amount of things to do in the Kimberley area… but there's a lot of things to do, so that's gonna take some time. That being said, here's a bunch of things we have done since moving to Kimberley & definitely recommend:
Besides exploring the 24/7 natural wonder of the Kimberley area, there are also lots of date specific things going on. Whether that be live music, or an art exhibit, or a sporting event or something else entirely. Things like these:
I'm working on gathering intel about making the most of a day (or life) in Kimberley from the people that know a lot better than me. Locals. So if you are interested in finding out about the best places to eat and things to do and why you should totally visit / move to Kimberley, you'll probably want to spend a moment or two with these 'MEET A LOCAL' Q&A's. (ps - if you're a local yourself and would like to do one of these, CLICK HERE for more info)
And speaking of meeting locals… Kimberley is flush with all kinds of wonderful local businesses, which is why 95EH will also be running an ongoing feature called 'MEET A LOCAL BUSINESS'. So you'll definitely want to add 'perusing the local shops' to your list of things to do. (ps - if you run a local business and would like to do one of these, CLICK HERE for more info)
Well you are a combination of 'out of luck' and 'in luck… as long as you wait a little bit'. I'll be adding some more information to this page in the not too distant future + as I update the blog more things will appear on this page (computers are magical, eh?). So maybe it would not be the worst idea in the world to follow 95EH on the ol' FACEBOOK / INSTAGRAM / TWITTER for future updates. And if you'd like to get in touch about anything, you can do that over here.
