Living in the central Okanagan brings a unique opportunity: a setting boasting virtually endless outdoor adventures, paired with world-class attractions, shopping and dining, enjoyed amid a friendly, smaller-town vibe.
Here, our urban centres are filled with independent local retailers and purveyors passionate about the products they share with appreciative customers – key reasons Kelowna remains one of Western Canada’s most popular destinations for visitors, but also why locals are so proud to call this home.
To salute your favourite attractions, retailers and restaurants that make the Central Okanagan area unique – and likely find a few new favourites along the way – it’s time to #exploreKelowna!
Using an #exploreKelowna Local Savings Pass, designed just for Kelowna and Central Okanagan residents, you’ll not only be showing the love to local businesses, you’ll also enjoy some terrific savings, with the chance to win big.
And with more than 60 participating businesses, you have lots to explore. Included are art galleries and artisan shops, restaurants, cafés and cocktail bars, breweries, distilleries and wineries. Take a tour, visit a museum or get active – inside or out! You can even get away from it all with a pre-Christmas staycation, thanks to accommodation savings from local hotels and resorts.
