From McBride, the city of Jasper is approximately 90 miles (145 kilometers) to the east.
McBride offers some interesting destinations to see. The McBride Information Centre and the Valley Museum and Archives are two good options.
Of course, limiting yourself to only one place, regardless of its popularity, can only ever give you a limited view into the broader personality of a region. So be sure to tour Northern British Columbia's other cities, attractions and landscapes. Goat River, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southeast, and Valemount, 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the northwest of McBride are also worth visiting should you have the time.
This region is known for its fine old towns; these are often evocative windows into the area's colorful past.
Water adventures are a popular pastime here. Don't miss the opportunity to go sailing or surfing; Northern British Columbia has some perfect areas for it. Tapping into local knowledge can be an extremely rewarding way for visitors to familiarise themselves a new place and its people. So why not take advantage of one of the fascinating wildlife spotting tours and guided nature walks.
For many, the world is a book and those that don't travel get stuck on the same page. So book your holiday and enjoy the beauty and adventures that await in Northern British Columbia.
