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 while you stay at our Prince George Hotel? Just ask! We’d love to give you the inside scoop.

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.

Pine Centre Mall has undergone significant renovations over the past several years including a completely renovated food court, public washrooms and mall entranceways. We also have all new vending machines, kiddie rides, photo booth and coin operated massage chairs!
The Ancient Forest
Trekking 113 km east of Prince George, you’ll find a unique and beautiful ecosystem. The Ancient Forest is an inland wet-temperate rainforest—a forest ecosystem that combines attributes of both the coastal wet-temperate rainforests of British Columbia and adjacent boreal forests of Alberta and the far north.
The vibrant Prince George Farmers’ Market is open every Saturday, year round. Come sample some of the wonderful produce and artisan goods and listen to a bit of live music while you wander.
Northern Sports Centre
This Fascinating Facility is the result of a unique partnership between the City of Prince George and the University of Northern British Columbia, which recognizes the importance of linking sport, education, and the community.
