Kelowna Travel Guide: 88 reviews and 194 photos
On a car trip around British Columbia, I had chosen Kelowna as a base for a couple of days.
It was a good choice.
We stayed at a great B&B, with a wonderful couple as host's, they were so
nice and helpful on things to do and see in the area, and how to get to them.
Kelowna is set in a pretting setting, having a range of mountains, and
large Okangagan lake in the valley.
Plenty of nice gardens, walks, orchards and vineyards, sandy beaches,
excellent view points and historic buildings, everything was here, we just
did not have enough time to see all!
The city of Kelowna, [pop 107,000], is the largest community and is located
midway through the valley.
Kelowna has miles of beautiful parkland, and several sandy beaches,
and of course the lake for boating, swimming, water-skiing, windsurfing
and fishing in the Summer months.
In cooler months, the snow-capped mountains entice the skiers, boarders,
snowmobilers and outdoor adventurists for cold weather entertainment.
There are Spring, Summer and Fall Wine Festivals with hundreds of
activities focused on wine making, tasting and touring.
That’s not all though!
If you are not an outdoors person, then there are galleries, museums,
theatres, a casino, artists’ studios,and lots of shops to keep you amused.
I think there is something for everyone here.
We really enjoyed our time here!
