Serving you with passion!

Living in the Okanagan, or as some of us call it, Paradise, is fantastic. So wonderful in fact, that you may find yourself with more visitors over the summer months than you ever thought possible. It's a fabulous place to visit and for those of us who live here, it's not unusual to have back-to-back guests for those sunny summer months. 


If you find this is the case with you, you will want to make sure you have activities to do with them that show off the best of this beautiful piece of earth. In case you are short on ideas, here are 5 suggestions to get you out and enjoying all that the Okanagan has to offer.


1. Why not get out on that turquoise Kalamalka Lake and try something new: Stand Up Paddle Boarding or SUP is a fantastic way to enjoy the water while getting some exercise. Kalavida Surf Shop is located across from Kal Lake Beach and rents a variety of boards to get you started. 


2. After a long day on the lake, it's nice to sit in the shade and listen to some great music. Vernon offers Civic Sounds, a weekly Thursday night event where local musicians share their talent with the community. You can find out more details on the Hello BC website.


3. If you have friends or family visiting on August 14th, they may like to attend the 8th annual Feast of Fields where you can experience farm to table, local foods in gourmet fashion. It's a great way to impress your foodie visitors. You can find tickets on the Feast of Fields website.


4. If more music is what they're after, the Roots & Blues festival has the best. Held in Salmon Arm from August 19th to 21st, you can see and hear enough music to satisfy the most festive hearts. You can see the full lineup here.


5. Show off Vernon's charm by taking your guests on both the Vernon Mural Walking Tour to see the historical and contemporary art throughout the town and you don't want to miss the Vernon Ghost Tour to get a little spooked out while learning the history of Vernon and its surrounding homes.


Regardless of what your guests are interested in, there is something interesting for each group and I suspect you will find yourself enjoying being a tourist in your own town! And it goes without saying, if your visitors decided that they would like to make Vernon their home, I know someone who might be able to help them out with that...
