On Okanagan Lake’s east shore, Kelowna is a sun-kissed, easygoing city surrounded by vineyards.

Kelowna, near Cedar Creek Park | Tanya Goehring

Set in British Columbia’s wine country, good food and drink are central to Kelowna, as is golfing, skiing and boating on the lake. Go wine or cider tasting, shop at an orchard fruit stand, cycle, hike, and snowshoe. Active adventurers will enjoy a visit Myra Canyon on the reclaimed Kettle Valley Railway, where you can cycle through tunnels and over trestles, alongside a steep canyon rock face.
