Where do Canadians go on vacation? Kelowna, BC. In the heart of the Canadian Rockies is the Okanagan Valley, a river-valley that has some of Canada’s best weather. Warm in the summer and mild in the winter; the most you can ask for in the Great White North. The valley produces Canada’s world famous B.C. apples (illegal in the U.S.) and wine. The Valley has a marina for the avid boaters and many golf courses. Relaxing at the beach or sitting on the porch of a lakeside cottage is everyone’s idea of the perfect destination.
