The Canadian region of British Columbia is well-known for its immaculate and inspiring beauty with a number of stunning destinations to visit during your stay in the country. One lesser known location, but equally scintillating is the picturesque town of Kelowna. Kelowna was first settled in 1905 and is the largest city of the Okanagan Valley with a population of 100 000 people. Kelowna is a sanctuary away from the busier areas of British Columbia offering a glorious landscape of fertile gardens, pine forests, crystal clear lakes, sandy beaches, and rows of vineyards and orchards.
Cradled by a majestic terrain of imposing mountains, Kelowna doubles as the perfect serene retreat for those seeking rejuvenation of mind and body after being subjected to the constant demands of modern day life. Kelowna has the further added benefit of being largely un-congested despite the fact that its airport is the 10th busiest terminal in Canada. For those that love the great outdoors or even those that just want to re-connect with nature, Kelowna has a number of terrific recreational facilities that will help you spend that much-needed quality time with yourself and your family. The beaches and lakes are fabulous during the warmer months when you can treat yourself to a number water sports such as boating, wind surfing, water-skiing, and fishing.
During winter, Kelowna transforms into a snowy winter wonderland where travellers can enjoy anything from skiing to snowmobiles. Of course the town is also home to an outstanding golf course, which promises to entertain all avid golf enthusiasts no matter the time of year. For those who are interested in history and art, Kelowna’s burgeoning cultural district features a number of galleries and museums, as well as streets of fine dining, theatres, artist studios, and other interesting shops.
