Get Away for a Weekend
Just three hours drive from Vancouver, Princeton is your entry point into the BC Southern Interior. The air is clean here and the landscape and rivers beckon one to take pleasure in the outdoors. Time slows down here in Princeton and you can get away on our uncrowded lakes, rivers, trails and beaches.
While you are here, enjoy some great retail shopping and the old-fashioned hospitality of a town where the charms of yesteryear are still alive.
When you see all there is to do, and the hospitality that goes with it, you will want to visit regularly. Princeton is situated at the forks of the Similkameen and Tulameen Rivers at an elevation of 650 metres (2,100 feet). Lying in the rain-shadow on the eastern slopes of the Cascade mountains, the climate is fairly dry.
The Kettle Valley Rail Trail and China Ridge Trails
The town and area are steeped in history. There are over 50 lakes in a 50 kilometre radius. The Similkameen and Tulameen Rivers offer fishing and water fun. The Kettle Valley Rail Trail and China Ridge Recreation Area offer scenic hiking, cycling and skiing.
Wine Country and the Fruit Stands of the Similkameen
Princeton is your gateway to Similkameen and Okanagan Wine Countries and the fruitstands of the Similkameen Valley.
