People come to Penticton for many reasons, some come to enjoy the sunshine and beaches while others for the many festi- PENTICTON vals and events happening throughout the year. Water sports are a given with PENTICTON AIRPORT vast beaches at both, north and south ends of town and a river channel connecting the two lakes. If you’re looking for just a little relaxation, what better way SKAHA LAKE to relax than lying on the beach or renting a floatation device from Coyote Cruises and taking a leisurely float down the channel to soak up some sunshine, but don't forget your sunscreen. Looking for adventure? In the valley there is a wide range of biking and hiking trails from beginner to expert and it is 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. If golf is your thing, there are plenty of courses for the beginner or pro golfer to try. Take the kids to Loco Landing Adventure Park for a round of mini golf, Go-Karting or Bumper Boats. Try indoor rock climbing at Hoodoo Adventures, they also rent kayaks, stand up paddleboards and bikes for more outdoor fun. Your adventure to Penticton wouldn’t be complete without having an ice cream from The Peach or Lickity Splitz at Okanagan beach. Is there a wine tour on your agenda? Award winning wines await the connoisseur at a multitude of wineries in the area. There are quite a number of fantastic distilleries in the Okanagan that turn the local fruit into wonderful spirits and liqueurs, we recommend Maple Leaf Spirits on the Naramata Bench. Penticton is also home to seven craft breweries with Lonely Planet dubbing Penticton as 'Canada's Craft Beer Capital'. How about fresh picked fruit? Take a short drive to a fruit stand at one of the many orchards nearby to sample the freshest fruit you’ve ever tasted. These are just a few of the fun and exciting things to see and do in and around Penticton. We hope you enjoy your stay here in Penticton. Come and find a place for you to stay forever or a reason to return and discover more fun!

The town of Princeton is PRINCETON beautifully nestled in the foothills of the Cascade 40 Y Mountains, in the heart of HW the Similkameen Valley and at the junction of the Tulameen and Similkameen rivers. The mountains, valleys and hundreds of miles of back country roads make it a natural setting for outdoor activities including hiking, mountain biking, bird watching, wildlife photography, rock hounding, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. Either of the two rivers are a natural choice for tubing, canoeing, kayaking, or even gold panning. The 49 lakes in the area make Princeton a prime fishing destination in all four seasons, yes ice fishing too. Embark on your hike or bicycle exploration of the Trans Canada Trail right in Princeton. To the West follow the Tulameen River through tunnels and over bridges to the communities of Coalmont, Tulameen, and Brookmere. To the North East, the higher elevation takes you through grasslands, forests and along lakes. Enjoy the spectacular views as you make your way to Osprey Lake and on to Summerland.
