Travel Tips for Princeton

Princeton, in the Similkameen Valley

by Darby2

Princeton lies in the western Okanagan along Highway 3 that begins in Hope, about 90 tortuous miles to the west. It was once a coal mining town and remnants of that industry are still found nearby. There are also several copper mines in the area but most of them have been worked out. Cattle ranching and forestry is also important in this area. Northwest of the rown the road leads to the mining/ghost towns of Coalmont and Tulameen. Heading north brings you to Merritt, and heading east takes you to Hedley, Keremeos, Penticton, Kelowna, Oliver and Osoyoos in the Okanagan Valley, Canada's prime fruit growing region with thousands of acres of apples, peaches, apricots, cherries, pears, grapes, tomatoes and other succulent farm produce.

Pictured here is the wild clematis, also called Travellers's Joy that grows in the drier areas of the province .
