If you love wine or fresh fruit, you’ve probably heard of the Okanagan Valley. As a spot in the southern interior of British Columbia, the valley is home to some of the most fertile soil in Canada. Lots of good stuff grows here and urban settlements have grown, as a result. The largest city in the area is Kelowna. With a population of just under 200,000, Kelowna is the third largest metropolitan area in B.C.

One big draw to living in Kelowna is the temperate weather. Winters typically dip just below freezing, although temperatures have gone much lower when the occasional Arctic air mass falls on the valley. Thankfully, summers are dry, hot and sunny. There are two interesting climatic facts about Kelowna. The first is that the city reports the cloudiest conditions in December and January, outside of Newfoundland. This is due, in part, to the being located in a valley. Kelowna also has the greatest percentage of wind observations out of all the major cities in Canada. It’s windy 39% of the time in this city; thankfully, the vast majority of these winds are considered calm.

Another interesting aspect about Kelowna is that the city is often used as a market trial area. Due to its moderate population, national businesses and various organizations will often launch and test new products in the city. So, what makes Kelowna’s population moderate? According to Statistics Canada, the population is almost evenly split between males (51.6%) and females (48.4%). This makes it a great sample test market. For instance, Carl’s Jr. opened its first Canadian store in Kelowna; Telus Mobility first relaunched as Clearnet in this city and the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority piloted the new whole body imaging technology at the Kelowna Airport.

For the most part, the city is car-oriented. In 2007, it had the highest car dependency rate in Canada. Part of the reason is the city is built as a sprawling metropolis. Add to this the major highways that connect all quadrants of the city. Highway 97, the Trans-Canada and Crowsnest Highway all run through Kelowna, as does the Expo 86 line.  

As the largest city in the tourist-oriented Okanagan Valley, the main employer in Kelowna is the service and tourism industry. However, there are government jobs in the city as well as some post-secondary positions at the Okanagan College and the University of British Columbia.

Nearby Cities

Many buyers opt to purchase in a nearby city and commute to work. These buyers want larger homes and lots but with good commuter access to Kelowna’s downtown core. Good options include West Kelowna, Traders Cove and Westbank. Look for neighbourhoods that are closer to the highway or commuter train stations. Even cities that require a bit longer of a commute, such as Peachland, Penticton and Vernon, are good options as they offer more affordable detached homes.

Commuters

To get around Kelowna, you may need to rely on the city’s public transit system or your car. There’s a number of bus routes but most households have at least one family car. For avid cyclists, there are quite a few dedicated bike routes. Most are found in the neighbourhoods closest to the lake or near Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park. Those relying on car travel should keep in mind that only the downtown area and the neighbourhoods east and north have direct access to Highways 97 and 33.

Local Scoop

If you ski and you live in Kelowna than you’ll probably spend as many days and nights as you can up at Big White Ski Resort. Known simply as Big White, the resort is just 56 kilometres from Kelowna and has western Canada’s largest resort night skiing area. It’s also the third largest resort in British Columbia after Whistler-Blackcomb and Sun Peaks in Kamloops.

But there’s more to Kelowna than powder. In the summer, you can pack a picnic basket and join the locals at Knox Mountain Park. The site overlooks downtown Kelowna, which means stunning views of the city’s waterfront and Okanagan Lake. This spot is particularly popular on really hot days as there always seems to be a breeze up at the peak.

For a sweet escape, consider hanging with the honey-makers at Arlo’s Honey Farm. There’s a Pollinator Park as well as a honey tasting bar. Just don’t show up before mid-May as the gates are closed until then.

On very wet days take the kids to Energplex. A family-fun zone, this indoor playground is four-storeys of trampolines, tubes and ladders. It even has a rock wall and a laser-tag arena.

A bit of outdoor adventure is in store if decide to spend the day at Myra Canyon. As a part of the city’s Kettle Valley Railway, the canyon allows you ride on and explore an 18 trestle bridge and two tunnels.

During the evening, many locals end up at The Streaming Cafe. The downtown cafe offers great coffee, food and music. If you want to dance, consider checking out Blue Gator Bar & Grill. Every Wednesday night Poppa Dawg and his band take the stage, while Friday and Saturday there is a roster of rotating artists.
