Prince George is BC’s largest northern city and a hub for services of Northern BC. It is also a hub for outdoor enthusiasts! As we drove into town, we looked down into the core of the city to see the town next to the confluence of the Fraser and Nachako Rivers; not many towns can boast that view! As we scanned up past the riverbank we could see beautiful hills and rolling mountains surrounding the area, and maps quickly unleashed a myriad of lakes and hiking trails for us to explore.
We hadn’t been on the ground for more then 30 minutes before we knew… we were going to like it here!
After a lunch break it was time to take some refuge from the heat and head inside the Exploration Place Museum (located 100 meters from the playground within the same park).
- The oldest snooker table in PG was still allowed to be played on!
- Kids could hold snakes and help the caretakers feed them dead mice
- Petting cockroaches was encouraged
- Animal furs were plentiful and kids were encouraged to feel the difference between the pelts.
