Kelowna reviews & blogs
Pros: Tons of things to do all year round! Spring starts off with 25-30 degrees, orchards in full bloom and there's a great ski to sea race...
Cons: Everyone's heard all the great stuff about Kelowna and surrounding area and there all wanting a piece of it! The population is growing at an unbelieveable rate - causing the housing market to shoot up past Vancouver and Toronto...
This is a good place to A great place to live all year round and have everything you need!
