The Okanagan Wine and Orchard Museum chronicles the Okanagan Valley's transformation from cattle ranching to today's beautiful orchards and vineyards. There's lots of interesting displays highlighting local industries like fruit packing, picking, and processing.
Don't miss visiting the SS Sicamous Museum and Heritage Park in Penticton. Canada's largest surviving paddle wheeler was launched in 1914, and contains a fascinating shipboard museum.

Kelowna's largest park, Knox Mountain Park, offers a range of activities including disc golf, tennis, biking, and hiking. More fun is in store at Myra Canyon Adventure Park—there's a netted climbing course, zip lines, balance boards, and more. WildPlay Element Parks will challenge kids with giant swings and obstacle courses; adults can join in the fun too.
There's plenty of other fun activities in Kelowna to choose from. HydroFly is the hottest watersport activity in town that lets you fly over the water. For a fun parasailing experience over the lake, try Ogopogo Parasail. Safety harnesses for ages above four make this a safe family activity. Located at Myra Canyon under the Kettle Valley Railway Trestles, Kelowna Stables is a superb destination for horseback riding. Kids aged two and above can ride a horse with lead ropes, while older ones can ride solo.
Book a Kelowna Cabin in Winter or Summer
Centred around Kelowna, the 135km-long Okanagan Lake is a popular summertime escape replete with options such as boating, fishing, paddleboarding, swimming, and sunbathing. The crystal-clear lake lies nestled between mountains, and is a photographer's paradise. Take some time to explore the surrounding countryside on horseback, bike, or by hiking the well-marked trails in the area. Set aside a day for the Myra Canyon Trestles trail, a part of the historic Kettle Valley Railway. The scenic drive there takes you past luscious orchards, vineyards, and golf courses.
Come winter, Kelowna opens itself up to snowshoeing, ice skating, and alpine and cross-country skiing pursuits. The spectacular Big White Ski Resort in the Okanagan Highland is known as a top-rated winter destination. Another recommended destination is the SilverStar Mountain Resort for its 760m vertical drop, and gorgeous Victorian architecture in a pedestrianized setting.
The Vaseux Lake Provincial Park, located between Oliver and Okanagan Lake, is a waterfowl sanctuary for migratory birds such as Canadian geese and trumpeter swans. Bighorn sheep, muskrats, beavers, and deer can also be spotted at this 4km-long lake. After a day in the outdoors, kick off your boots and relax at your comfortable Kelowna cabin rentals.
