The popular travel-booking site, Expedia.ca, named Prince Rupert as one of Canada’s top small towns to visit for a Canada Day getaway this summer.
In a TravelBlog post by author Jennifer Cuellar, Prince Rupert was among 25 small towns mentioned for a Canada 150 outing.
The Museum of Northern BC and the North Pacific Cannery National Historic Site were singled out as great places to visit to explore and take in North Coast history.
“For an ocean-blue seaside town, there’s a healthy dose of reds that pop out against the cool landscape. Red roofs, red railings, red chairs … it’s enough of a jolt to remind you that, while it may be a small seaside town, it’s anything but sleepy,” wrote Cuellar.
She also urged readers to stop in at Rodhos Pizza, “a local favourite for over 20 years.”
