The South Shuswap does not have a brick-and-mortar Visitor Information Centre. Through the financial support of the CSRD, Shuswap Tourism and the Province of BC Rural Dividend Program, we were able to break ground in 2017 offering a new model of visitor information services. Six visitor information kiosks were built in 2016, a further 3 in 2018 and a further 2 will be built in 2019, bringing the total to 11, all spread throughout the South Shuswap region. These kiosks serve as a pick up station for Vacation Planners, Shuswap Tourism guides for hiking, cycling, motor touring, winter activities, wine tours, golfing, First Nations cultural activities, area event calendars and much more. There is also a tearaway map and bucket list with a listing of all accommodations, eateries, activity providers and area amenities.
The location of these kiosks are: Sandy Beach Waterfront in Blind Bay, Sorrento Blind Bay Park, Sorrento Strip Mall Hwy 1, White Lake Community Park, Sunnybrae Community Park, Eagle Bay Mercantile Store, Balmoral Chevron Hwy 1 & Balmoral, Intersection Balmoral & Blind Bay Rd, Squilax Race Trac Gas, Blind Bay Marketplace Mall, and Dreamcycle Motorcycle Museum.
