- Kelowna, what's it like?
Desert, cacti, hummingbirds, beach lake resorts, wineries, loads of other fruit growing.
Penticton's a bit nicer than Kelowna, although not as big. Kelowna's a bit concrete and sprawly. Some good climbing too, if that's your bag. And you might even find Penticton is a bit plastic touristy in places, too.
Okanagan valley is the warm bit to base your search around.
And some half decent mountain biking, apparently.Posted 8 years agoTroutWrestlerMember
We did a house-swap in Vernon, just up the valley, a couple of summers ago. Hot is the word. Loads of biking with a great local scene. We bought season passes for Silver Star, which has great lift-served riding.
The Okanagan in general is full of powerboats, jetskis and pumped-up jeeps. Kelowna is the commercial centre with a number of large Malls.
The whole area is great. Go there. Enjoy!Posted 8 years ago
