Cool down in Kelowna

Power down your Macbook and pack the beach bag: it’s summer vacation time.

Corral your brood for a vacation in Kelowna, Okanagan’s hottest sun spot. With over 30 public beaches, tons of spacious accommodations (from resorts to B&Bs), loads of fun and free activities and a quaint Main Street, you’ll spend your days with sand between your toes and your nights with a glass of wine in your hand.

Show the kids mom’s still boss with a beach volleyball tournament (their lack of height makes most children poor blockers, meaning you should be able to win with ease) and then celebrate your volleyball triumph lakeside with a fine Okanagan pinot noir while your children frolic in the water, gracefully accepting their defeat.

If the kids are still bursting with energy after a full day at the beach, there’s no end to free fun, like hiking mountain trails, trekking up Knox Mountain and nightly concerts in the park.

Life’s a beach… all summer long in Kelowna.
