Can you picture yourself golfing in the morning and touring vineyards in the afternoon? How about shredding the slopes today or going for a vigorous hike after a long day at the office? Whether you want playtime or downtime, culture or nature, living in Kelowna really has it all.

Here’s how you can make the most of living in Kelowna:


Enjoy the Water

Everything here revolves around Okanagan Lake, so whether you prefer to be in, on, or beside the water, there’s plenty to do! Our sandy beaches are perfect for a lazy day in the sun, and if you prefer being on the lake, you can take the boat out, go fishing, or try out some board sports. If you’re a total waterbaby, you can go for a swim or even go for a dive and search for Ogopogo, Kelowna’s very own lake monster.

Get Outside

Kelownians love getting outside–and it’s easy to see why! Living in Kelowna gives you plenty of opportunity to get back to nature, from hiking and biking to climbing and caving. There are endless outdoor recreational activities for individuals and families, or you can take a stroll down the boardwalk and shop at the outdoor arts market.

Swirl, Sip and Savour

With over 40 wineries just 20 minutes away, it’s so easy to enjoy and celebrate the birthplace of winemaking in British Columbia. There are also a ton of foodie experiences, amazing wine tours, and vineyard events to enjoy.

Work on Your Backswing

With year-round sunshine, Kelowna has one of the longest and driest golf season in the entire country. Our courses have gorgeous views of Okanagan Lake, the mountains, and the vineyards, as well as a range of unique features to take advantage of. Never golfed before? No problem, several of our courses offer golf lessons and equipment rentals.


Hit the Slopes

One of the best parts about living in Kelowna is our proximity to the beautiful British Columbia mountains. We absolutely love snowboarding and skiing with our families; the team favourite is Big White Ski Resort because it’s only an hour from Kelowna. If you prefer being on a flatter ground, why not try cross-country skiing or snowshoeing on one of the many trails throughout Kelowna?

Stimulate Your Senses

Do you live for the arts? Then you’ll love living in Kelowna. Our local shows, exhibits, festivals, and cultural events that take place throughout the year. You can embrace local colour and sound at the Kelowna Art Gallery, The Rotary Centre for the Arts, the Kelowna Community Theatre, and the many galleries that sit along Bernard Street.
