Amid summer sunshine, sparkling waters and warm Okanagan smiles, the city of Kelowna is the Okanagan’s largest and liveliest population centre, and one of Canada’s most popular vacation destinations. It’s such a perfect lakeshore community that it’s known to some as the Summer City. If you enjoy water sports – sailing, houseboating, kayaking, windsurfing, and fishing – you may never want to leave Kelowna.
Located on the east side of Lake Okanagan, mid-way between Penticton in the south and Vernon in the north, downtown Kelowna offers a spectacular landscape of lake, mountains and parks. There’s a wide range of cafés, continental and ethnic restaurants, and noisy nightclubs to choose from, as well as unique shops and boutiques, heritage buildings and modern architecture, art galleries and museums, music and live theatre, and even a symphony and ballet.
