Presale Condos Developments in the BC Okanagan
British Columbia’s pastoral Okanagan valley includes the fruit-bearing South Okanagan centred around Penticton and Oliver, the busy Central Okanagan of Kelowna and Vernon, and the North, where the Thompson and Shuswap regions begin. Read more…
As BC’s third-largest metro area, Kelowna is more than just the original town. The sunny, laid-back city on Okanagan Lake has greatly expanded, boasting several hip neighbourhoods such as West Kelowna, the North End, Lakeshore, North Kelowna and more. Kelowna, as well as its cousin Penticton on the other end of the lake, is a stone’s throw from golfing, wine, cider, and craft beer tasting, as well as cycling the reclaimed Kettle Valley rail line. Kelowna easily sells itself as one of the best places in North America to live.
Craft Beer Lifestyle in Wine & Cider Country
The towns set in the Okanagan Valley’s rolling hills comprise British Columbia’s wine country, and Penticton is known throughout Canada and the Pacific Northwest as a wine destination. During the past decade however, Penticton has also become famous for craft beer. Rated by Expedia as one of the best towns for beer in Canada, Penticton scored a coup in 2020 when Lonely Planet featured it as Canada’s Capital of Craft Beer.
Not to be outdone, in very recent years Kelowna has grown as a craft beer destination itself, with over 15 breweries to choose from. Even Vernon, Salmon Arm, Westbank, Summerland and Oliver have their own craft breweries (and in some cases, craft distilleries) to complement the countless wineries and cideries in the region.
