Nakusp received a very favourable review in British Columbia Magazine’s (www.bcmag.ca) fall 2014 issue thanks to a visit last fall from freelance journalist Remy Scalza. His Twitter account calls him a journalist, photographer, and street food lover.
Scalza has been published in National Geographic Traveler, the New York Times and the Washington Post. This man has been around the block, and he seems to like this little part of the world.
Scalza spent time with some of Nakusp’s locals, and even quoted a few of them in the quarterly magazine. He visited last fall and the article was recently published for this year’s fall issue. From the Jackrabbit Trail to the mushroom industry, Scalza covers it all: he mentions the local hot springs, the waterfront walkway and sculpture as well as local eateries. He really did his homework and took his time speaking to many folks in the community.
Nakusp has recently been featured in other publications. In August, there was the Seattle Times column by a travel writer Christy Karras who reviewed the area on a tour of Kootenay hot springs, and in July, EhCanada Travel created a video and online article about the Village Hot Springs and Cedar Chalets (www.ehcanadatravel.com).
