Prince George, BCThe largest city in Northern British Columbia, Prince George is widely known as BC's northern capital. From the very beginning, Prince George was built around the forest industry. Today, the forest industry is still the largest employer in town. 

In fact, the city mascot, Mr PG, a huge "log" statue that stands near the tourist information centre, symbolizes the importance of the forest industry to the local economy.

As Prince George is a stopover town, you should plan to arrive at the end of the day.
