For at least a hundred years, visitors and residents have admired the beauty of Fernie. They have come in search of a simpler life, natural beauty and in many cases because of the snow. The landscape is enduring and the town below beckons people to stay and enjoy the view. From just about anywhere on 2nd Avenue, in historic, downtown Fernie, there is a sense that there is time to stop and admire the view.

Perhaps it is the presence of the historic buildings that takes visitors back to a simpler time that has survived to present day. Constructed of brick and stone, there is a charm to these buildings that seems to echo of times passed and a heritage that is not lost on many that take pride in the town today . It is rare to find a town like this one, where parking violations aren’t enforced because there isn’t an enforcement officer. Most visitors feel like they’ve uncovered a secret, a memorable place with ambience and character that is worth tucking away and coming back to when there’s more time.
