Showing why Prince George is a truly special place to call home, visit, or use as a staging point for British Columbia’s northern hinterland, this guidebook encourages exploration of the city and the surrounding area, with an accent on self-discovery. The rivers, treed escarpments, abundant green spaces, and surrounding backcountry are waiting to be explored winter and summer. Urban walks and wilderness hikes mix with interesting facts, historic memories and practical information.
