On the Skeena River in northwestern British Columbia sits the city of Terrace. Surrounded by flat mountain ranges and lush forests of cedar, hemlock and balsam, Terrace is full of natural beauty. Sediment deposits from glaciers produced the natural benches, or terraces, in the area, that give the city its name.
Set on the traditional lands of the Kitselas people, Terrace first prospered as a logging town. Some of the world's largest cedar poles, used for telephone and electric services, have come from the city. But today, Terrace's economy is becoming increasingly diverse. Tourism, mining, and retail are important sectors in the centre of 11,500 people.
Terrace offers residents a wealth of activities, both indoor and outdoor. Gambling, swimming, bowling, skiing, snowboarding, sport fishing, camping, golfing, biking, hiking, rock climbing, and lounging in the natural hot springs are just some examples of what awaits you in Terrace.
