Sampling a glass of exquisite Okanagan wine is just part of the experience that awaits visitors of Kelowna hotels.

If you’re on our website, chances are you’re contemplating investing in some Kelowna real estate. If you’ve been to the Okanagan before, you’ve already got a good idea of why it’s such an attractive destination for visitors and people fortunate enough to call it their home. With so much to do and see, it can be difficult to know where to start, which is a nice problem to have. To help get you up to speed, we’ve asked BEST WESTERN PLUS Kelowna Hotel & Suites to give you the lowdown on two must-do activities during your Okanagan stay.


It’s no secret that the Okanagan Valley is the perfect holiday getaway—or at least we like to think so. Our bustling Kelowna hotels are proof of that. Heck, most locals choose to spend their vacations at home during the glorious summer months. With so much to do and see, it’s not overly surprising.

And while Kelowna residents might have insider knowledge on what the best attractions are, we at Best Western Plus Kelowna Hotel & Suites have devised a couple of guides to give you a crash course in two of the region’s favourite pastimes—golf and wine (usually, but not always, enjoyed in that order).


Swing Your Golf Game into High Gear

If you’re the type of person who’d contemplate leaving your youngest child at home to make room in the car for your new TaylorMades—someone needs to look after the cat, right?—then The Ultimate Okanagan Golf Guide is just the thing for you.

With nearly 40 courses across the Okanagan Valley to choose from—ranging from family-friendly nine-hole par-3s to award-winning championship courses that’ll severely test your handicap—you need to plan your time well. And that’s exactly what this guide is meant to do.

Here are some of the highlights:

  • A user-friendly Kelowna golf map detailing all of the top golf clubs within a short drive of Kelowna hotels (a high-resolution PDF is also available).
  • Information on ‘Stay and Play’ golf packages
  • Tips on how to get golf discounts and other deals


Gewurztraminer or Pinot Gris? Or Both?

If you thought you were spoiled for choices of golf courses in the Okanagan, the number of wineries is even more impressive. There are more than 200, and counting.

So if visiting a winery—or twelve—is on your to-do list, then The Ultimate Guide to Okanagan Wine Tours should be on your reading list. It contains the information you need to get you to the vineyards in the most practical and enjoyable way possible:

  • Popular Okanagan wine festivals
  • White, red, and specialty varietals grown in the valley
  • Organized wine tours and wine trails

From sampling fine wine to playing the back nine, Best Western Plus Kelowna Hotel & Suites has the guides to keep you on course during your holiday. And after a day of cavorting in our Okanagan playground, come back and unwind with a massage at our Wellness Centre or a soak in our hot tubs.


Those of us blessed to live in the Okanagan Valley have year-round access to the best sightseeing and outdoor activities to be found anywhere. For people interested in investing in Kelowna real estate, it just comes as part of the package and it’s why we love doing what we do at Quincy Vrecko & Associates. Specializing in fine homes and luxury real estate, we’ll help you discover a better quality of life.
