July 27, 2012: Okanagan Lake @ Penticton


City of Penticton is sandwiched between two lakes: Okanagan Lake in the north and Skaha Lake in the south. Both lakes offer plenty of opportunities for water sports: swimming, sailing, water skiing, wind surfing, etc. There is a canal connecting two lakes where water tubing and kayaking are common.

Okanagan Lake tends to have more crowds; there are more shops, restaurants, museums, and parks in the north side of the city. A few examples are Sicamous Inland Marine Museum featuring S.S. Sicamous Sternwheeler, Giant Peach in Rotary Park, LocoLanding Adventure Park, Japanese garden, a rose garden, and a wide array of wineries.

Beaches along Skaha Lake offers a close-up views of airplane take-offs and landing, since it’s next to the airport.
