Surrounded by crystalline lakes, awe-inspiring mountain ranges and endless forests, Prince George is a small city in a large expanse of otherwise uninhabited wilderness. For those who love serene spaces, solitude and spending time outdoors, this Northern British Columbia city is a small slice of heaven.
Although many visitors to Prince George simply stop in to pick up extra camping gear or take a hot shower between adventures in the wild, it’s also a great city to enjoy a relaxing weekend away from home or a hearty meal with friends.
With all of the amenities of a large city, Prince George also offers plenty of attractions for the whole family such as Exploration Place, the Huble Homestead and the Prince George Railway & Forestry Museum. Live theatre, WHL hockey, art galleries, fine dining and festivals are also easy to find. In fact, there are so many reasons to spend time in this warm, friendly city that you’ll find yourself wondering why you didn’t visit a long time ago.
