The Thompson Okanagan's endless sunny summer days allow wineries, markets, gardens, farms and orchards to flourish – it's also ideal for waterslides and amusement parks.
Interspered among the vineyards, lakes and fields are museums and historic sites that highlight Aboriginal culture, railways, pioneer farms and more.
Visit a winery on a wine tour or learn about the desert and Aboriginal culture at the Nk'Mip Desert Cultural Centre. Pick up fresh fruit and veggies at a roadside stand or stop by Historic O'Keefe Ranch for a taste of history. The Kettle Valley Steam Railway is a fun way to take in the scenery and live entertainment at the same time.
