Why we 🧡 Autumn in the Okanagan
If you are lucky enough to be living in the Okanagan, then you probably appreciate everything that’s great about being here. With so many activities, regardless of the season, the activities you love, or the education offered, you can watch your family go from kindergarten to a university graduate without having to leave the area.
The Okanagan has such a wide variety of restaurants, including restaurants that have been voted some of the best in the world according to TripAdvisor.
From scratch bakeries to fine dining. Local pubs to drive-thru. Romantic evenings overlooking the beach to sports pubs to catch your favorite event.
The variety of dining options will not leave you feeling unsatisfied.
And don’t forget about the wineries! It is what the Okanagan is known for. With over 150 wineries offering wine tours, tastings, and menu options created by our Chefs to be perfectly paired for an unforgettable meal.
The scenery in The Okanagan is breathtaking! Taking hiking trips up Knox Mountain, Myra Canyon, or Fintry Falls, just to name a few, will leave you feeling energized and mesmerized. We also have the longest suspension bridge in North America at Kelowna Mountain Suspension Bridge. Wanting to get out for the afternoon with the family, is an easy task with all the hiking and beach options.
It is pretty difficult to get bored living in The Okanagan. Summertime fun includes beaches all throughout the Okanagan that are waiting to be explored. With firepits on the beach for roasting weenies and outdoor splash parks for the little ones to run around in, they will keep you nice and cool on our delightful hot days. And get ready for going down the Channel. You can bring your own floaties or rent one to float on from one end of Penticton to the other. If you’re heading more north in the Okanagan, you can go down the Enderby channel, which actually called The Shuswap River. There is an outdoor waterslide park in Vernon, and everyone knows that’s fun for kids and adults!
You can also hit the Enderby Drive-in theater for a whole night of fun. Yes, that’s right! We have our very own drive-in theatre opened every summer and it does not disappoint.
Of course, for winter days, Big White is approximately a one-hour drive from Kelowna. With dozens of activities to entertain the family and beautiful rental options, including cozy rooms perfect for a single family to multi-family accommodations, you will find everything you need for a small weekend getaway or a single day full of fun.
And when the weather is keeping you indoors, we have swimming pools with diving boards, river-runs, waterslides, and hot tubs to relax in. Skating rinks, arcades, movie theaters and indoor playgrounds… just to name a few.
With a large variety of schools, worrying about your or your children’s education will not be a thing. We offer everything from public education to private schools. English or French Immersion schools, you have the choice where you want your little one to start their education. With the Okanagan having The Okanagan College and The University of British Columbia located right here in Kelowna, your post-secondary education can be completed all while enjoying one the most beautiful places to live.
