Vacation with armchair travelers

The Okanagan Chateau will begin an ArmChair Travel program in January.

Are you interested in traveling and learning about different cities around the world? Well this is possible without even leaving the Okanagan Chateau.

The retirement living resort on Benvoulin Road in Kelowna will present an experience of virtual touring.

Starting with the first session on Jan. 29, at 2:30 p.m., participants can take a seat in their armchair and spend a day in a specific city, starting with New York City.

The hour-long tour of the city that never sleeps goes from the tourist attractions, to life on the busy New York streets, going for a taxi ride and visiting some of the many popular restaurants.

For more information about this program, which will carry on every three months throughout next year, contact the Okanagan Chateau  retirement resort at 250-862-9088.
