Discover the lakeside city of Penticton

Penticton’s picturesque lakeside setting and wonderfully diverse surrounding landscape makes it a magnet for outdoor enthusiasts but a burgeoning downtown district, a host of cultural attractions, and easy access to more vineyards than you could count in the surrounding Okanagan Valley makes this city a good bet for all flavors of visitor. Make the most of your time here by setting up camp in a Penticton vacation rental. Many homes will place you just steps from the brilliant blue waters of Lake Okanagan.

Enjoy outdoor spills and indoor thrills in Penticton

Lake Okanagan provides an idyllic setting for all manner of watersports while the climbing community can be found ascending the dizzy heights of nearby Skaha Bluffs. Slow things down with a wander through the fragrant Penticton Rose Garden or pay a trip to the up-and-coming downtown district where bustling farmers’ markets and lively festivals hold court from spring through fall. Before heading back to your Penticton vacation rental, catching a show at Cleland Theatre is a lovely way to end the day.

Find attractions for the whole family in Penticton

If you’re traveling with children, family-friendly attractions such as Loco Landing Mini Golf and the splash parks at Skaha and Okanagan Beaches will likely earn a spot on your must-do list. Alternatively, cycling along the Kettle Valley Trail before stopping to feast on your favorite picnic food is the perfect way to put a smile on anyone’s face. Of course, if you’re enjoying a romantic stay or your trip is strictly for grown-ups, you may like to do away with the idea of cycling and set off to discover a new favorite tipple instead. You’ll find more than 40 wineries within a 20-minute drive of most Penticton vacation rentals.

Experience all 4 seasons in Penticton

Penticton’s long and hot summers, when sunny days in July can see temperatures soar past 80 degrees, should satisfy most sun seekers. The winter months from December through February draw a different crowd, namely those who want to pelt through the powdery slopes of nearby Apex Mountain at full pace. Spring brings with it a showy display of yellow wildflowers while the fiery foliage in fall can’t fail to impress.

Explore the varied landscape around Penticton

Lake Okanagan is the undisputed star of the show in Penticton, but the landscape has more than a few other dazzling highlights and cheeky surprises. Among them are the Okanagan and Marina Way Beaches, both of which are sandy and offer safe and shallow swimming areas. The so-called Three Mile Beach is another popular spot where clothing is unofficially optional once you get pass the large willow tree. If you prefer slightly more rugged surroundings, Okanagan Mountain Provincial Park, just 35 minutes north of the city, brings open terrain and breathtaking views to the table.
