The historic Canadian town of Dawson Creek sits in the north-eastern region of the province of British Columbia and sits at mile zero of the famous Alaska Highway.
If you want to learn all about the town of about 12,000 people and its heritage, then a trip to the Northern Alberta Railway Park is recommended as it also houses the Station Museum and Art Gallery as well as the visitor information center and the famous stone cairn marker.
The marker signifies where the Alaska Highway starts and it’s quite a popular place for visitors to take photos. For more on the town’s history, you can visit the Walter Wright Pioneer Village.
This wonderful attraction is designed to depict how frontier life was in Dawson Creek prior to the building of the Alaska Highway.
If you’d like to enjoy the outdoors and stay active, then a trip to the nearby Swan Lake Provincial Park should be taken as you can enjoy Camping, Fishing, Boating, and Swimming to your heart’s content.
In the winter time there’s just as much fun as you can visit Bear Mountain for some great cross-country and downhill skiing.
Other local recreational areas include Rotary Lake for picnics and swimming as well as the Dawson Trail, which weaves through the whole city and is ideal for Roller-Blading, Biking, Jogging, and Walking.
This scenic small town offers plenty to do and see for visitors of all ages and interests.
