Discover your own backyard with a trip north to Cariboo Country and enjoy the scenery and landscapes of this beautiful area. Spend two nights at the historic Billy Barker Casino Hotel and step back in time with a visit to the heritage site of Barkerville. Come and enjoy some northern hospitality & history!
Travel north up the Okanagan Valley through Kamloops, lunch in Cache Creek then follow the Cariboo Highway into Quesnel and our home for the next two nights, the ‘Billy’. Modelled after the paddlewheelers that plied the Fraser River during the gold rush of the late 1800’s, the Billy Barker Casino Hotel is a unique part of the city. Each room has its own style, reminiscent of the late 1800’s; when Billy Barker came to town. Your stay will be memorable as you relive his experience. Try your luck this evening in the 6,000 sq.ft. Billy Barker Casino, offering a classic gaming atmosphere which is themed with the rest of the hotel. (L)
Our day is filled with history, sights & adventure as we travel ‘back in time’ visiting the living history museum of Barkerville. A live performance of period melodrama, dance & music at the Theatre Royale is included. You’ll enjoy your day in the town with board sidewalks & dirt streets. Once again, our route back to Quesnel traces the footsteps of the early gold-seekers. (CB)
