Like a lot of people, I had to cancel my plans to travel this summer. While I didn’t have any great European vacations planned, I did have a few weddings in the lower mainland that I was excited for. At first, I was sad at the thought of a long summer cooped up inside … until I remembered that I live in Northern British Columbia!
As a resident of Prince George, I’m blessed with a bounty of outdoor activities right in my own back yard. Instead of being sad about things outside of my control, I decided to take things into my own hands and plan an epic outdoor staycation.
Spots I visited during my week-long Prince George staycation
- Ferguson Lake – Located about 20 minutes outside of Prince George, Ferguson Lake is great for people interested in an easy walk through nature!
- Forests for the World – Located inside Prince George city limits, Forests for the World is a literal paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you’re birdwatching, mountain biking, or taking your dog for a hike, there’s something for everyone.
- Moore’s Meadow – Also located within Prince George city limits, Moore’s Meadow is more than just a dog-friendly park, it’s the beginning on an intricate trail system with new places to explore each time you visit.
If you plan a staycation like I did, remember to travel close to home, wash your hands frequently, and keep two metres distance from others at all times.
