Having lived in Vernon, British Columbia for over 24 years, I have to say I have a bit of a soft spot for this quaint little town. It's a friendly place with a great community, a good location between Vancouver and Calgary, but often people ask, "What is there to DO in this sleepy little town?". Below is a list of the first 5 I could think of, but there are more. Many!

#1. Downtown Vernon. Downtown Vernon is small, inconspicuous gem. East Hill is one of the best neighbourhoods to live in that allows you to enjoy easy access to some of the best coffee shops, restaurants and botique shops that Downtown has to offer. And don't forget to check out the Sunshine Festival in June.


#2. Kalamalka Lake Park. Only a 10 minute drive from downtown Vernon, Kal Lake Park is a great way to “get out of town” and enjoy hiking, biking, swimming or just enjoying the view.


#3. Silver Star Mountain & Sovereign Lakes. Depending on your preference, a ride up the mountain will take you to Sovereign Lakes (20 minues) where you can enjoy the x kilometers of cross country trails, or continue 15 minutes more and reach Silver Star Mountain Resort where you can enjoy The Village or spend the day on the world class slopes.


#4. North End Hub. In case you thought Vernon was just a small town, the north end of the city still offers all the large shopping options that a bigger city offers. With most of the newer developments happening here, Vernon gives you a nice option of the more fast-paced north end, but leaves you with the option of a small town feel with the downtown core.



#5. Three Lakes. Yes, that’s right. Vernon offers not one, not two, but three lakes. The smallest of the lakes is Swan 

Lake, located to the north end of the city, it is less used for swimming but one of the favorate spots for the Vernon Rowing 

Club. The second largest is Kalamalka Lake. Known for it’s turquoise beauty, it offers great swimming, lakefront 

properties and a plethora of water sports and activities. The biggest lake, Okanagan Lake, starts in Vernon and 

ends 135kms south in Penticton. A great place for swimming, boating and sailing, Okanagan Lake offers coutless things to do all through the Okanagan Valley.


So there a just a few things that make Vernon so fantastic. If you want to pick my brains, or have a specific question about this wonderful little town, please don’t hesitate to give me a shout!
