Kelowna makes most scenic cities list

The secret's out!

Everyone living in the Okanagan understands its stellar natural beauty.

From rolling hills to crystal clear lakes and pristine beaches, the area has a lot of scenery to offer.

So, it's not much surprise that Kelowna has landed on a 33 Most Scenic Towns in North America list.

Here's what the list had to say about Kelowna.

"When it comes to epic wine regions, California has Napa, Western Australia has Margaret River, and British Columbia has Kelowna. As you’re cruising through the vines of Mission Hill Winery and Quails Gate, you’ll be able to take in unobstructed views of Okanagan Lake. But this town isn’t just jammed with some of the best wineries in Canada; there are two fabulous ski resorts nearby, Big White and Silver Mountain Resort, in case you decide to take a vacay during the winter months. Please send us a postcard."
