Backdropped by mountains, Kelowna is a sanctuary of pristine lakes, pine forests, abundant gardens, orchards and vineyards, sandy beaches and superb amenities — all just a short flight from Vancouver.
Set at the mid-point of Okanagan Lake’s 110-kilometre (68-mile) expanse, Kelowna is the largest city in the Okanagan Valley. But don’t let its size fool you; Kelowna may have the amenities of a metropolis but it maintains the warmth of a familiar town.
Spend a day with the kids in one of the city’s gorgeous provincial parks, or on the many sandy beaches that provide opportunities to boat, swim, water-ski, windsurf and fish. Take family bonding to new levels with an excursion to the region’s bucolic wineries, many of which are a quick drive from the downtown core. (Mom and Dad can sample the latest reds and whites in some of BC’s oldest wineries while, at select locations, little ones partake in their very own juice tastings.) Hike one of the area’s famous trails, crossing old railway trestles, and take in the spectacular views, or hit the links on one of the city’s challenging championship courses. In winter, experience the Okanagan’s famous, dry champagne powder snow in one of its family-friendly (but still challenging) ski resorts.
From a six-block downtown cultural district to orchards that drive inventive local menus to exciting seasonal festivals, Kelowna is a small city that will leave you with big memories.
