We are planning on driving from Vanc. to Osoyoos. My husband and I are travelling with our kids ages 11 and 15. I would like to know about where to buy groceries, rent bikes, paddleboards or bring them. We will spend a lot of time at the pool and lake but will also need other activities because we will be there for 7 days. We will cook most meals but do plan on eating out . Any suggestions would be appreciated.

What do you suggest.

there are rentals for all kinds of watercraft, bringing the bikes would be a good idea since it is quite easy biking at lake level. There are 2 mid size grocery stores, and lots of fruit stands. Also you will be minutes away from Oroville in the US which has a general store. For things to do there is spotted lake that you will drive past if you take the turn in Keremeos that goes to Osoyoos via Cawston, seeing the spotted lake close up is a good hike, and,

a drive to the top of the hill on the East side and drive a few miles to the Eagle ridge subdivision to see the sasquach, eagle, cariboo and a couple more bronze statues. on the way back stop in at the Spirit Ridge resort winery; the is a centre that is made of rammed earth worth visiting and a section of untouched desert.

There is Rattle Snake Canyon amusement park near the Best Western hotel.

From Osoyoos drive to Borrowing Owl winery to climb to the top of the tower and a hike to the gazebo.and on the same day you could go to the Radio Observatory as shown on this map. http://goo.gl/maps/N1cLn
