Coast Inn of The North’s Favorite Spots
We don’t just work in Prince George, BC; we live and play here, too. Our Prince George BC hotel has compiled a list of our favorites spots that you won’t want to miss while staying at our Coast Inn of the North. We’ve highlighted a few well-known attractions as well as a couple of local gems you may not have heard about, but we think they are well worth a visit. Need more hints about where to go and what to do? Just ask! We’d love to give you the inside scoop.
Explore the Traditional Territory
Established in 1882, the traditional First Nation territory we’re located in stretches over 4.3 million hectares, from the impressive Rocky Mountains to the beautiful interior plateau, including the City of Prince George.
The Exploration Place
Get hands-on with science and history at this wonderful museum. A great stop for the whole family.
Forests for the World
The perfect place to get away from it all: 15 kilometers of trails and a beautiful lake for fishing. A short hike up to the main lookout provides a terrific view of the city.
Make sure to pay a visit to this one-of-a-kind historic town. Unlike many gold rush towns from this era (which have long since disappeared), Barkerville is thriving. Take a tour to get the inside scoop!
