Retire In The Sunny Okanagan

by Gord Myrdal

Kelowna at sunsetI have to say that the best place to retire is in the Okanagan Valley. I have lived here for many years and I plan on retiring here for many more years to come. I believe you could retire anywhere in this valley. 

This beautiful region sits in the interior of British Columbia. The Okanagan is famous for its sunny and hot weather in the summer. The winter is quite mild with a little snow here and there. It is never too cold and downright balmy compared to the rest of Canada!

The Okanagan has so much to offer anyone wanting to retire here. There are numerous outdoor activities that will keep you busy throughout the year. Here are just a few things to look forward to:

  • Golfing
  • Fishing
  • Camping
  • Hunting
  • Skiing

Imagine spending the day doing one of these activities and then sipping a glass of wine at any of the award-winning wineries in the "Napa Valley" of the North. We have close to one hundred of them.

Come for a visit and spend some time in one of the cities or communities here. I promise you that you will love what you see! Whatever you fancy for an enjoyable retirement you are sure to find it here in the Okanagan.
