Fortunate to be at the heart of BC’s Okanagan wine region, the area boasts amazing festivals featuring internationally recognized wines. In addition to museums, art galleries, unique shops and wonderful restaurants, the 2,000 hours of sunshine each year will help you enjoy making the Southern Interior your home.
