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.

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.
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!
TNW is a regional theatre dedicated to bringing our audience a wide range of plays drawn from the contemporary Canadian and International repertoire. Actors and other theatre professionals are contracted for each production from across Canada to work with our resident staff in order to bring together a four-play season which runs from September to May.
Pine Centre Shopping Mall
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. It is home to the University’s Varsity Basketball and Soccer teams and is the Northern Health Hub for various user groups, teams, companies, and individuals of all ages.

Three years before the City of Prince George was incorporated and the same year the titanic sank, the first Prince George Exhibition was held! According to Ted Williams, one of Prince George’s most notable local historians, “A few men met, had a few drinks, put their straw hats together and came up with the idea of a fall fair”. They hoped that townspeople and farmers in the district would exhibit, compete, enjoy themselves and draw the community together. Only in a handful of instances has the fair been cancelled; it has weathered the storm of world wars, times of hardship and prosperity, growth and development, growing pains and change. This spirit continues. August 18-21st, we invite you to our 104th “COUNTRY ROOTS AND COWBOY BOOTS,” annual fair!
Keith UrbanSep 13, 2016 7:30 pm — Sep 13, 2016 10:30 pm
Keith Urban has long been hailed as one of the music industry’s best live performers who has always given his fans electrifying and unpredictable shows with eye-popping production and a set list that is saturated with many of his hit songs (20 have gone to No. 1 on the country charts, and he’s one of those special breakout artists who get appreciated by pop crowds as much as traditional country fans). His on-stage presentation has been called electrifying and emotional, fast-paced and unpredictable, an explosive experience, a roller coaster ride. – See more at: http://www.princegeorgecitizen.com/entertainment/local-a-e/keith-urban-coming-to-p-g-1.2242387#sthash.H7dFvdxd.dpuf
