Logging was the major industry in Terrace for decades. For a time, the community was known as the “cedar pole capital of the world,” and the world’s largest cedar pole (162 feet/50 metres) was cut here. The economy has since diversified, and Terrace remains a commercial hub.

Terrace has all visitor services, including lodging at motels/hotels; dining at restaurants and fast-food outlets; gas stations; shopping centres and “big box” stores. Camping at private and public campgrounds.
