The Okanagan Valley is actually a series of valleys, linked by a string of lakes, that stretches for 250 Km from Osoyoos in the south, to Vernon in the north. The main towns here are connected by Highway 97, which passes through the desert landscape near Lake Osoyoos, and on to the lush green orchards and vineyards for which the valley is most noted. Mild winters and hot summers have make the Okanagan one of Canada's favorite vacation destinations.

Kelowna
The biggest city in the Okanagan, Kelowna lies on the shores of Lake Okanagan between Penticton and Vernon, and is the center of wines, fruit growing industries and shopping in it's downtown core and Orchard Park Mall. Kelowna city park is the heart of the town with Hot Sands Beach, childrens water park, green spaces and stunning views of Okangan Lake from the walkway taking you north of downtown, the yacht club to the Delta Hotel.

Vernon
Surrounded by farms and orchards, Vernon owes its lush look to the growth of irrigation channels and is becoming one of Okanagan's fastest growing cities.  One of the most spectacular features is the beautiful turquoise coloured Kalamalka Lake at the north side of town, popular with the locals and summer tourists.

Peachland
Located 30 minutes south of Kelowna is Peachland a quiet bedside community along Okanagan Lake.  Once this small community was a ideal location for people working at Brenda Mines a copper-molybdenum mine that opened in 1970 and closed 1990.  Now Peachland attracts retires looking for an Okanagan lifestyle without the big city rush. Today Peachland has two marinas The Pentowna and Peachland Yacht Club, it has a quiet downtown area on the lake with a walkway that takes you from north to south.  Boating in this area is exceptional with minimum lake traffic, private coves and lake buoys on Okanagan Park side of the lake.

Summerland
This small lakeside community 15 minutes south of Peachland boasts several 19th century buildings and a relaxing atmospher in its downtown center. Head to the top of Gian's Head Mountain for stunning views of the lake and valley. Summerland is famous for its roadside fruits stands packed with locally grown peaches, cherries and apples. The local marina is very welcoming with moorage, boat and jet ski rentals.

Penticton
This sunny lakeside town is known for the long Okanagan Lake beach at the north end and Skaha Laka beach on the south.  One of the most talked about things to do in Penticton is the free 7km channel float from Okanagan Lake side through to Skaha Lake.  Penticton is very popular with boaters, water skiers, windsurfers, local winery tours, as well as for its Peach Festival held every August.
