THE KELOWNA LIFESTYLE
Okanagan lake and the rolling mountains provide more than spectacular vistas, they are the backdrop to lifestyle living in Kelowna. Boating, beaching, fishing and water play activities skim the surface on warm weather fun. Championship golf courses, hiking and biking trails, wine touring, skiing and snowboarding, and zip lining are a sampling of the outdoor recreational activities available in the area.
With over 2,000 hours of sunshine each year and the average summer temperatures being 30 degrees Celcius it’s easy to see why Kelowna is often called Canada’s California! There’s no bad time to live in Kelowna. The Okanagan is aptly described as a four-season playground: mild winters, beautiful springs with many summer-like days, hot summers that extend into the fall, and fresh fall days perfect for exploring.
