Kelowna boasts all the amenities of a major city: fine dining, unique shops and vibrant culture. Yet orchards and vineyards thrive within a 10-minute drive of the downtown core. Spectacular vistas await those ready to explore. A delightful day can be spent sampling the award-winning wares of our numerous internationally-acclaimed wineries.
Situated on the eastern shore of Okanagan Lake mid-way between Penticton in the south and Vernon in the north, Kelowna residents and tourists alike find the lake offers wonderful opportunities for boating, swimming or fishing. The nearby mountains attract hikers, skiers and outdoor enthusiasts of all descriptions. Three major ski hills are within a one-hour drive.
And then of course there is the Golf. Kelowna has been chosen as the most outstanding golf destination in Canada for several years. There are over 50 golf courses within an hour of the city, and the most highly rated of these is Tower Ranch.
