Mile 0 of the Alaska Highway
Dawson Creek is a great little town tucked into the northeast corner of BC and surounded by rolling prairies. When we visited, we had a great time exploring the town's museum and saw some amazing local artists' work at the gallery, which is housed in a restored grain elevator.
But the main draw to Dawson Creek is probably the start of the legendary Alaska Highway. The Alaska Highway House interpretive centre was a highlight - especially the PBS documentary on how the road was built. Definitely make time in your schedule to watch it before setting out on your journey north to Alaska. I haven't travelled the Highway yet ... but now I want to!
