Sep, 01 || No Comments | Tags: , , , ,

Kelowna is in British Columbia, Lake Okanagan. Kelowna is a tourist resort and works as a commercial center for an area of  orchards and forestry. Other industries are making wine here and work in automated stores.

Is the capital regional district of Okanagan’s center, and is the third largest metropolitan area in British Columbia (after Vancouver and Victoria).

Originally colonized by missionaries in 1859, Kelowna was officially included in the country in 1905. Among neighboring towns include Westbank to the west, southwest Peachland, Penticton Vernon to the north and south of Peachland.

Kelowna is famous for producing wines with an international reputation. Vineyards are common in all areas of the surroundings, especially in the south where the climate is ideal for a variety of vineyards. Among the most notable in the world include Mission Hill Estate Vineyard (mission Hill estate), especially for unique architectural design. However, at least two major wineries were destroyed or damaged by fire in Okanagan Mountain Park.

For many years, only one major highway passed through the city of Kelowna: Highway 97. The road itself is good, but the link with all points on the east or west of the province is only using the winding and slow variations, Trans-Canadian Highway and the Crowsnest Highway.

As the Okanagan Valley is a popular crossing point for those living in Vancouver, a new highway was built within British Columbia in 1986, reducing by more than two hours travel time spent between the two major destinations. This highway starts in Hope is known as the Coquihalla Highway (Highway 5) and ends in Kamloops. Highway 5 is a highway to pay for both directions and will cost $ 10 each way for a normal passenger vehicle.
