Village of Cache Creek, BC
Cache Creek is a bustling community of 1,100, located in the South Central Interior region of the province of British Columbia. Cache Creek is a founding partner of "Gold Country", an alliance of the communities of Ashcroft, Clinton, Lillooet, Lytton, Spences Bridge and Savona. These communities welcome you to experience the history of "The Gold Rush Trail".
Cache Creek is rich in historic lore, dating back to the days when wagon trains and prospectors followed the trail to the Cariboo Gold Fields in the 1800's. As the midway point between BC's lower mainland and Cariboo Country, Cache Creek has been an important natural overnight oasis for travelers since the mid-1800s.
Cache Creek is a strong community, strategically located at the junction of two major highways. Its economic base lies in tourism, forestry and waste management. There is a good business environment in the community that supports new industry. The opportunities for investment are endless and land is readily available.
The downtown core has been the object of a revitalization effort over the past several years. The "Back to the Fifties" automotive transportation theme is fitting as main street consists of two major highways. The streets are lined with neon signs and flowers and a few businesses and residents around town own antique vehicles that they display. The pinnacle event of the theme is 'Graffiti Days' when everyone drives and displays their vintage cars. The Nl'ak'apxm Eagle Motorplex honors the celebration by featuring drag races and hosting a dance. The theme and celebration portrays the type of warm, friendly atmosphere present in the community.
