We have had another amazing summer of travel which kicked off with a wonderful two week road trip of the beautiful British Columbia interior and Canadian Rockies!
Part one of our trip took us to the city of Kelowna, a 4 hour drive east of Vancouver. We drove through Kelowna at Christmas time on our way to Silverstar Ski Resort and it was a winter wonderland. On our second trip to Kelowna however we discovered the delights of this amazing city on the lake in the middle of the Okanagan Valley. Well know for being a wonderful wine region, Kelowna really is a fabulous place with a funky downtown area filled with great restaurants and great shops. We stayed at the lovely Manteo Resort which had the perfect patio for adults to enjoy drinks by the lake and a great pool and recreation area that kept the kids entertained for hours!
We enjoyed a great day boating on the lake with friends and a bike ride along the fabulous Kettle Rail Trail which is the old Canadian Pacific Railway line that has since been abandoned! Definitely add these two items to your list of must do’s when visiting BC!
Yes that is a helicopter and a float plane out front of the house!!
