If you're ready to move to the Okanagan, you might want to consider West Kelowna. West Kelowna is located just over the bridge from Kelowna, BC and has loads of things to do, no matter what lifestyle you love.


Keep Yourself Busy

There is no shortage of things to do in West Kelowna. The area is filled with things for outdoor enthusiasts to do, such as hiking Mount Boucherie or Bear Creek Provincial Park. You can also slip away for a weekend of camping anywhere in the Okanagan, or right to your backyard at Bear Creek or Fintry Provincial Park.

If there's one thing the Okanagan is known for, it's the "lake life." Get out on the water for a pontoon boat ride, or if you prefer a more active lake experience, get up on a wakeboard or surf.

We can't forget about the winter enthusiasts. If you love hitting the slopes, you're in luck as there are three ski resorts within two hours of West Kelowna: Apex Mountain Resort, Big White Ski Resort, and SilverStar Mountain Resort.


Eat & Drink

You don't have to be a lover of outdoor activities to enjoy West Kelowna; it's also becoming a food and wine mecca. Visit some of the local wineries such as Quail's Gate, Mission Hill, Black Swift, or any of the other ones right in your backyard. Not to mention, many of these wineries have top-rated restaurants that are a definite must on your to-do list. Not a wine lover, that's okay; the valley is packed with craft breweries and cideries, including Truck 59 and The Hatching Post in West Kelowna.


Culture Is Everywhere

There is culture beyond farmer's markets and living in the “Napa of the North.” The majority of West Kelowna sits on West Bank First Nation's land and visiting or living in this area calls for learning about the deep-rooted culture of the First Nation's People.

Whether you live in BC, Alberta, or any other part of Canada, moving to the Okanagan Valley is easier than you think, especially when you work with a professional moving service like Bekins Moving and Storage. The knowledgeable team can provide moving tips and make your entire move stress-free.
