Dawson Creek
Mile 0 - The Alaska Highway extends over 1,400 miles from Dawson Creek to Alaska. It was built in 1942 to bring troops, supplies and equipment to the far north during World War II. Kids will want to stand under the Mile 0 sign, marking the start of the Alaska Highway.
Walter Wright Pioneer Museum - Imagine settling in Dawson Creek in the early 20th century. Wander through this open air museum, where kids can see a typical wood frame houses (built to withstand the cold winters), the Dawson Creek School, general store, fire station, blacksmith shop, and church.
Fort Nelson Memorial Park - Right on the highway as you're driving through town, you'll see a large playground with picnic tables in the shade, and the Rotary Club Family Splash Park water play area.
