Tourism Prince George

Tourism Prince George is your reference guide to a city bursting with community activities, enchanting celebrations, and stunning wilderness all year long

Prince George

At the confluence of the Fraser and Nechako Rivers you’ll find the bustling city of Prince George — a place where wilderness and urban amenities converge to form one of B.C.’s most exciting communities. And there’s no better time to visit than now — as a proud community partner of the 2015 Canada Winter Games, Prince George will be welcoming athletes and sports fans alike with open arms this February for two weeks of thrills and excitement. 2015 also marks city’s centennial year, so the festive spirit will continue well into the summer months with a full roster of festivals and celebrations.

The first stop on any trip to Prince George should be the Visitor Information Centre, where guests can find out all they need to know about the city’s hot spots and best events, borrow bicycles or fishing rods at no charge or explore the gift shop, filled with beautiful treasures from local artists. From there, anything is possible.

Though Prince George began its life as a logging town, the amenities and activities available today prove that it has grown into a vibrant hub of arts, culture, sports and adventure for people from all walks of life. Shop the eclectic, locally owned boutiques of Fourth Avenue, enjoy live music and fresh fare at the acclaimed Nancy O’s or cheer on the Prince George Cougars at a thrilling Western Hockey League game. Explore the stunning architecture of the University of Northern British Columbia campus one afternoon, then coast down the lazy river at the Aquatic Centre, take a stroll through the winter wonderland light display at Connaught Hill Park or ski beneath the stars on a late night run at Otway Nordic Ski Centre.

Whether you’re here with family and friends, or travelling solo, one thing’s certain: there’s something for everyone in Prince George. Visit takeonpg.com or tourismpg.com for more information about your next great vacation destination.
