Kelowna, British Columbia
Kelowna has been dubbed the capital of the Okanagan Valley for good reason. With 130,000 residents and growing, Kelowna is the largest city in British Columbia East of the lower mainland and offers many of the services and companies that people just can not do without. Nestled on the eastern side of Lake Okanagan, it’s no wonder why vacation rentals thrive in this beautiful region of the world. Boasting over 2000 hours of sunshine a year lake life is in full force here with tourists coming from across Canada to enjoy Kelowna in the summer. Not far from the the downtown Kelowna, residents and visitors are treated to numerous hiking trails and outdoor sights, ranging from waterfalls to wildlife. Along with the 18 local golf courses, ranging from par 3’s, to world class championship courses, the valley is also graced with over 32 wineries, meaning nearly around every turn you are treated with gorgeous landscapes and scenery.
Kelowna is not only limited to the summer, the crisp autumn days are a beautiful as the leaves change colour and the relentless heat gives way to the changing season. With the changing weather it opens up new opportunity as the crowds tend to dissipate. Many people can be found taking time to reflect in the peaceful orchards in the countryside or one of the cozy cafes.
Winter in the Okanagan also brings adventure. Only 48km from downtown Kelowna you will find top notch champagne powder at Big White Ski Resort. If skiiing isnt your thing, the mountain also offers an array of non skiing alternatives for a long list of people. The temperate winters also make Kelowna a top spot for winter activities. Grab a pair of skates and lace them up downtown at Stuart park on the waterfront, from there walk to one of the many restaurants downtown such as local favourite Raudz Regional Table who’s local ingredient farm to table menu will leave you content wondering how you ever lived without it.
