Located at the confluence of the Tulameen and Similkameen rivers, with surrounding grasslands, forested highlands, lakes and nearby Cascade Mountains, Princeton is a magnet for outdoor enthusiasts.
People are drawn by its natural sights, parks and wildlife. They come to swim, paddle and fish in its waterways and to hike, mountain bike and cross-country ski the region's multitude of trails.
Others discover a different face of the town. Culture buffs visit Princeton to explore historic and heritage sites that tell of its fascinating First Nations traditions and colourful mining history. See curiously eroded hoodoos and the brilliant red cliff where First Nations people mined for ochre.
