The Okanagan Valley is filled with many beautiful places, and Vernon, BC doesn't disappoint. This quaint city is located in the northern part of the Okanagan, and although it may be smaller than Kelowna (an hour South), there is plenty to do and see. If you are considering moving to Vernon or leaving the beautiful location, Bekins is a full-service moving company that can help make the move stress-free. If you already call Vernon home and are looking to clear some space in your house, talk to Bekins about storage options such as a portable storage container or storage rentals.


Something For Every Season

It doesn't matter what season it is, there is always something to do in Vernon. Davison Orchards Country Village is a place perfect for the entire family. Stepping onto this orchard takes you back in time. From a country store serving up fresh baked goods to the tractor rides to the pumpkin patch, it's a perfect way to spend a fall day.

For the adults looking for something to do, visit Okanagan Spirits & Craft Distillery. You can enjoy a tasting of their Okanagan, made-in-house spirits and purchase the ones you like to take home and enjoy again.


Get Outdoors

Kalamalka Lake is one of the most breathtaking spots in the entire valley. It has a turquoise colour unique to this lake and is great for swimming, boating, kayaking and is full of hiking trails. In the winter months, it's an ideal place for snowshoeing through the northern valley.

What would a place in the Okanagan Valley be without a place to enjoy the mountains? SilverStar Mountain Resort is one of the best for snowboarding and skiing, but that's not all; it's known for the incredible downhill mountain biking trails.


The Food Scene

With so many farms and orchards surrounding Vernon, it's no wonder they have an incredible farm-to-table scene. If you're looking for a cozy unique experience, head to BX Press Cidery and Orchard to enjoy some incredible ciders and food in the middle of an orchard.

If you're looking for a more upscale dining experience, visit Range Lounge & Grill at Predator Ridge golf course. Voted one of the best golf locations in Canada, you can bet the restaurant is on par (no pun intended) with it.


For those coffee and sweet tooth people out there, a must-stop is Ratio Coffee & Pastry. Hint: get there early, as they do sell out, but it's well worth the early morning. Good news, Donut Day is Friday, and you can order ahead.
