In the summer, we have Okanagan Lake with all its amenities: swimming boating, windsurfing and parasailing to name a few. Lounge by our salt water pool overlooking the lake or Peach Orchard Park, with its great beach, is only a few minutes away. Hiking and biking trails are endless. The most well known is the historic Kettle Valley Trail.

The Ironman triathlon is held in August in Penticton which is 20 minutes away.

In the Spring, there is the Spring Wine Festival which is a great event to attend. The Spring is also the beginning of golf season. The South Okanagan has many top golf courses that host over 20 championships tournaments.

Jazz anyone??? Penticton hosts the well known Pentastic Hot Jazz Festival in September every year. Or if you are more of an Elvis fan, in June there is the Pacific Northwest Elvis festival held also in Penticton.

In the Fall, we have the Fall Wine Festival. This is a must for all wine fanciers. One week of touring, tasting and partaking in the many festival events.
