Attractions in Penticton
The sights, smells and sounds of pleasure are all around you in Penticton, a place to live and play forever. The sounds of splishing and splashing fill each warm Summer day as boaters, swimmers and beach lovers play and laze their days away on Skaha and Okanagan lakes. The sweet aroma of crushed grapes emanates from the area’s 89 wineries, drawing wine lovers like flies to fruit for a taste of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and other Okanagan wines. Fruit stands line Penticton’s highways with juicy cherries, apricots, peaches and other fruit from over 400 growers in the Okanagan-Similkameen region. Hikers and bikers walk or pump their way along Penticton’s seven recreation trails, jaws dropped in awe of lake, mountain and canyon views. Golf balls whiz through the warm Okanagan air at Penticton’s six golf courses to the delight or disgust of golfers. In Penticton, the pleasures of life can be enjoyed on the water, in a field of green, at a historic site, or by attending one of Penticton’s many cultural centres and events.
