Lake Country in the Okanagan Valley is one of the most beautiful places in Canada. With its tranquil lakes, green rolling hills, and lush orchards and wineries, Lake Country is a highly desirable destination for tourists and new residents alike.
Lake Country is just minutes from Kelowna (179,000 residents) and Vernon (59,000 residents) giving residents access to the urban amenities while enjoying the peace and serenity of small town living. Lake Country is also within easy driving distance of Kamloops to the north (99,000 residents) and Penticton to the south (42,000 residents).
Lake Country’s level of highway exposure is unparalled in other communities. Intersected by Highway 97, a north-south linkage running from the Trans-Canada Highway to the north down into the United States, 26,000 vehicles a day pass along Highway 97 with peak hourly traffic volumes that exceed 7,000 vehicles an hour.
The Okanagan region is known for its hot summers and mild winters, making it the warmest and driest area in Canada. Lake Country receives more than 2,000 hours of sunshine per year, presenting boundless opportunities for year-round recreation. Within a one-hour drive of three destination ski resorts and enjoying miles of lake front beaches and parks, Lake Country is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise.
