The local tourism sector is having a solid year and the Province is attributing that to B.C. citizens exploring the Peace Region. There are a number of benefits to “staycations” according to a release from the Province including boosting the provincial economy, supporting local businesses, and sustaining jobs in the tourism sector.
Specifically the Province recommends a number of activities and places to visit within the Peace. Among them are the Tumbler Ridge Palaeontology Research Centre, visiting Chetwynd to see over 150 chainsaw carvings, Dawson Creek to see the origins of the Alaska Highway, heading over to Kinuseo Falls in Monkman Provincial Park, and camping and hiking through Mount Robson Provincial Park.
