I've lived in Prince George my whole life and have done everything that CAN be done regarding fun.Most people who come here don't look into these things and will come for the trails and hiking, which is beautiful of course, but there is so much more to see.Prince George has one of few drive-in theatres in Canada. It is some-what of a drive out of...more

As soon as you walk in and take a breath you know this will be a great experience. The original art and top notch service pair well with a great wine list and specatcularly cooked meals.
In a town with so many Chain Restaurants, it is nice to go to a place that has local ownership and it seems an owner and chef that has a great sense of taste and flavour
Favorite Dish: Lobster Tempura, Seafood Bruschetta, Angel Hair Pasta, Salmon and Halibut
The many B.C Forest Service campgrounds scattered throughout the area provide rustic, unpretentious camping for those who wish to travel into the more remote areas. Most of them are free. One of my favorites is Chaunigan Lake which is high in the mountains by a lake with the most excellent trout fishing imaginable!! and breathtaking scenery.
Free travel maps are available from local BCFS offices in the major towns. These maps are essential for finding your way around the network of logging roads that traverse much of B.C.
For more information go to the BCFS web site.
Dress Code: None, but dress for the weather which can change dramatically. Advisable to bring rain gear. Warnings too, there are occaisional bears in this area.
Via Rail train service from Jasper operates 3 days per week. The touristic train, the Skeena, stops overnight in Prince George on its way to and from Prince Rupert. Westbound and eastbound trains arrive Monday, Thursday, and Saturday evenings.
This mall is huge. There are lots of things in here you can buy. This mall however doesnt keep up to par with some of the sports equipment such as basketball shoes. The store is pretty special because it takes you a good day to go through the store.
What to buy: This mall is probably the best store for young adults or teenagers on getting started in life. This mall has so much house or apartment things or supplies to get you started.
What to pay: The prices are cheaper than most other products in local stores or in other towns or cities near by Prince George.

As you can see, some beautiful jade carvings come from British Columbia's huge jade resource. A considerable amount of jade of lower quality is used in construction, tiles, countertops and ornamental stone. The colours range from green, black, white or yellow-brown. Green jade is the most sought after. High quality jade can cost as much as $100 per...more
The area around Prince George and north is a tremendous area for finding high quality jade (nephrite). Three quarters of the world's jade comes from B.C. The best B.C. nephrite is bought by local artists and transformed into artwork which is in demand internationally. The largest sculpture made of B.C. nephrite is probably the Buddha commissioned...more
This is a rare picture of the spillover from the Bennet Dam which supplies hydroelectric power to most of British Columbia and northern USA as well. Taken in the summer of 2002. Water is released through these gigantic spillways when the level of Williston Lake reservoir is too high. This spillover has happened only 4 times before since the dam was...more
The sports activities here are awsome there are so much sports here to watch. You have the PG cougers, PGSS basketball, and all the other high school sports. I said high school sports because the high school out here are very competitive and sometimes their games are better to watch than the professionals play.
Equipment: The gear you should bring is a good seating pad and suitable clothing to the events. Other that just come and show up to these wonderful events.
Head for the Chilcotin country for wilderness at its best! Pictured is magnificent Chilko Lake, nestled in the Coast Range, unspoiled, rugged and pristine. The dust cloud at the base of the mountain across the lake is actually a cloud of pine pollen being blown off the lodgepole pine trees on the slopes of the mountain. (click for a larger...more
