Discover your own backyard with a trip north to Cariboo Country and enjoy the scenery and landscapes of this beautiful area. Step back in time with a visit to Barkerville Historic Town and Park, the largest living-history museum in western North America. This extraordinary town stands as a testament to BC’s golden beginnings. With 125+ heritage buildings, authentic displays, satellite museums, restaurants and shops there is so much to explore.
Travelling north up the Okanagan Valley, and with a lunch stop in Cache Creek, we follow the Cariboo Highway to 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 re-live his experience. Try your luck this evening in the Billy Barker Casino, offering all your favorite slot machines and table games. (L)
Today is filled with history, sights and adventure as we travel ‘back in time’ visiting the living history museum of Barkerville. A live performance of period melodrama, dance and music at the Theatre Royal is included. You will enjoy your day in the town with board sidewalks and dirt streets. (CB)
Say goodbye to yesteryear as we return via a circle route with stops in Williams Lake and 100 Mile House. Bid farewell to friends as you return home with wonderful memories of the Cariboo Country and Barkerville Historic Town & Park, where history is alive and well. (CB)
