Would you stay in Quesnel?

Jump to last reply

So, our long-awaited vacation in BC and the Rockies is coming up next month, and I am rethinking part of the loop. Specifically, I'm wondering if it might be better to spend 2 nights in Quesnel rather than Prince George. That would put us in a reasonable distance (I think) to spend a day over in Barkerville Historic Town and Park.

For some perspective, the trip looks like this:
- Fly into Spokane, night at airport Ramada
- To Osoyoos, for 2 nights at Spirit Ridge and winery visits
- Up through Okanagan through the day, then over to Clinton for 1 night
- To Prince George for 2 nights (not sure what exactly we will do)
**or, 2 nights in Quesnel and explore that area plus Barkerville
- To Dawson Creek for 1 night (we do have some side trips and activities)
- To Jasper for 3 nights at Patricia Lake Bungalows (coming down on east side and into park just for curiosity's sake)
- To Banff for 4 nights (timeshare)
- To Waterton for 1 night
- To Glacier Natl Park US for 2 nights (Izaak Walton)
- To Spokane for 1 night
- Home

I picked Prince George because it seemed fairly midway, and thought we could find some historic sites and scenic areas to explore in the general vicinity, but I don't have anything specific identified. Would like opinion on whether the Quesnel/Barkersville option is worthwhile vs. the "big city" Prince George. Thanks in advance.
