Top 10 Activities to Enjoy in Kelowna

Whether you are travelling with the kids or by yourself, you will not be short of things to do in Kelowna. To help you narrow down the choices, especially if you are enjoying just one day here, there are a couple of top attractions to try:

  1. Lake Okanagan - Go swimming or just picnic on the beaches of Lake Okanagan. The area is serene, relaxing, and the perfect place to park for the afternoon.
  2. Waterfront Park - Kelowna has the advantage of sitting on the waterfront. Waterfront Park offers boardwalks along the waters, activities, and local eateries.
  3. Okanagan Heritage Museum - Learn about the culture and rich history that made Kelowna what it is today.
  4. Kasugai Japanese Gardens - Looking for a breathtaking botanical scene to soak up? Kasugai Japanese Gardens features waters full of lily pads, beautiful trees, and pergolas where you can rest and enjoy a relaxing few hours.
  5. Kelowna Farmers’ and Crafters’ Market - Every Wednesday and Saturday from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm is the Kelowna Farmers’ and Crafters’ Market. Here you will find food, craft vendors, fresh farm produce, and more.
  6. Wine Trails - One cannot visit Kelowna and not take a wine tour. There are more than 40 wineries in a 20-minute drive, including the 50th Parallel Estate Winery. Please don’t drink and drive. Plan to have a designated driver.
  7. Social Life of Water - Every Monday through Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm you can see the exhibition that teaches you about the value of water, developments, and the fascination behind how water sustains life.
  8. Spas - Relax while you wait for your vehicle by visiting one of the local spas for a massage or facial. Merle Norman Cosmetics and O Spa & Interior Laser Centre are great choices.
  9. Arlo’s Honey Farm - Pick up a bottle of pure honey and see what real beekeeping is like by visiting Arlo’s Honey Farm.
