WINE COUNTRY VISITOR CENTRE & PENTICTON CHAMBER

Penticton really is "A Place to Stay Forever", the people that come to visit often will find it is a place that they would like to retire. PENTICTON Retirement isn’t the only reason people are drawn to move here, because there are so many things to do in Penticton. Exercise is a big part of life to many residents and visitors alike. Water sports are a given with vast beaches at both, north and south ends of SKAHA LAKE town and a river channel connecting the two lakes. If you’re looking for just a little relaxation, what better way to relax than lying on the beach or taking a leisurely float down the channel and soaking up some sunshine, don't forget your sunscreen. In the valley there is a wide range of biking and hiking trails from beginner to expert and it’s just a 30 minute drive to Apex Mountain Ski Resort for a fun filled day on the slopes, also open in the summer months for downhill cycling and hiking with spectacular panoramic views, you're sure to get that scenic picture you're looking for. World renowned wines await the connoisseur at some of the finest wineries in the valley or take a short drive to a fruit stand at one of the many orchards nearby to sample the freshest fruit you’ve ever tasted. There are art galleries galore in the downtown and Colourful Front Street areas of town. If golf is your thing, try everything from the lush greens of Penticton Golf & Country Club to the canyon and cliff of Wow Golf Club or Pine Hills Golf Club. There are plenty of courses for the beginner and pro golfer. If you prefer mini golf try LocoLanding Adventure Park for exciting family fun. These are just a few of the fun and exciting things to do and see in and around Penticton. We hope you enjoy your stay here in Penticton. Come and find a place for you to stay forever!
