Kelowna

4.2
Orchard City
At the heart of British Columbia's wine country, Kelowna is at once both urban and rural, featuring a modern downtown encircled by picturesque hills carpeted with vineyards and orchards. The city's waterfront location makes it a major tourist destination, offering active vacationers a chance to sail and swim on a 130 km (80 mi) long lake. Kelowna makes an ideal base for touring the surrounding wineries and golf courses, located near small communities known for producing world-class artisanal cheeses. If you time your Kelowna vacation for winter, you can take advantage of the nearby ski resorts, a huge draw for lovers of snow sports. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Kelowna and add them to your vacation plans using our Canada trip planner.
