The Okanagan is a wonderful place to live, no matter what time of year it is. The region offers a spectacular lifestyle, accentuated with beautiful weather and stunning scenery. Kelowna’s Mission Area, in particular, offers a plethora of experiences to suit what you love. Here are just a few of the many reasons why it’s the perfect place to live, year-round.
Whether you are a high energy athlete or love a leisurely stroll, there is no shortage of activities to do in the Okanagan. Mountain bikers, runners, and hikers can access a nearly endless amount of trails in Kelowna’s Upper Mission, including Kuipers Peak and Myra Bellevue Provincial Park. Swimmers, boaters, and paddle boarders can head to Cedar Creek Park or the Downtown Marina, both of which are just minutes from Kestrel Ridge. And you can experience the famous Okanagan phrase, ‘ski in the morning, golf in the afternoon’ at Big White Ski Resort and nearby Harvest Golf Club.
Many restaurateurs in the Okanagan pride themselves on serving regional cuisine year-round. In the Kelowna Mission Area, Fixx Cafe and Summerhill Organic Bistro serve seasonally inspired dishes and local wines. If you are in the mood for just the wines, there is Cedar Creek Winery and St Hubertus & Oak Bay Estate Winery just minutes from Kestrel Ridge.
Hot summers, mild winters, refreshing springs and beautiful autumns make it easy to enjoy the Okanagan at any point in time. Bright sunny days bring endless opportunities for lively days and relaxing evenings. The spring brings fragrant orchard blossoms and delicious fruit markets, while autumn is visually stunning with red leaves, golden larches, and bustling salmon streams. Winters bring a sense of cosiness, whether you are enjoying a hike or the 180 degree lake view from the comfort of your home.
The Okanagan has everything you can find within a large city without the fast pace. Kelowna’s Mission Area embodies a sense of relaxation and encourages you to live in the present moment. You can be as active as you want, while also allowing for plenty of space to unwind, breathe the fresh air, and enjoy life.
