Its all in the interpretation.....
Your post 7 somewhat clarifies, then your post 9 rather undoes any good....Edited: 1:27 am, August 17, 2012
Most golf courses still open, winery tours, good hiking, biking, fishing. Maybe take in a hockey game at Prospera Place, visit cultural district. You will enjoy our area and welcome.
Well you shouldn't have been all snarkey right from the start, as i was not and made a valid point
Going to jump in here as well... I think telling the OP to ask her friends when she's specifically posted here is snarky and rude.. If the OP is asking here then there's a reason ..... we may not know it or understand it but it's a valid reason for the OP. I've personally been in a situation where I'm travelling somewhere and do know people there but still post questions as my local contacts may have a completely different pov than others do about the place.
Advising someone to read the Top Questions when they ask about driving to Banff is a completely different kettle of fish. Anyway I do hope the OP comes back and lets us know more specifics about interests etc.
Well i meant it genuinely as thats what i would do , and others agreed with me so if you feel that way that would be tour problem
Sandy, on behalf of all hosts and hostesses who have had people arriving on our doorsteps expecting us to be the fount of all knowledge about where we live, I thank you. I am going to assume that you have already talked to your friends, since you are so enthused about your trip - coming all the way from Illinois, something you had heard about the Okanagan (where Kelowna is situated) caused you to plan a 9-day holiday. It is only courteous to your friends to try to find out more before you arrive.
Have they mentioned the southern Okanagan to you? Plug "Penticton", "Osoyoos", Naramata" and "Oliver" into the TA search engine for the BC forum and you will come up with more information. Kelowna is a small city and sprawls up and down Highway 97. There are lots of amenities and some lovely residential areas and parks along the lake. However, the southern Okanagan is my preference. It is Canada's only deserty country and the area around Osoyoos is the northern most extension of the great desert that starts in the southwestern US. There are small towns with some character to them and lots and lots of vineyards. It is about 2 hours from Kelowna down to the US border and inbetween there is some lovely country.
Hope you enjoy your holiday.
Thank you to all of those who have answered my question
I greatly appreciate it
This is a travel forum and my type of question is completely acceptable !
BTW - If this October is anything like last October, temperatures will still be summery. Maybe not warm enough for a comfortable swim, but certainly t-shirt weather during the day!
