Here are our Top 5 Reasons to make West Kelowna your new hometown and Paradise Estates your new address.
1. You can get your Arts & Culture Fill
West Kelowna is home to Mission Hill Winery. Each year, Mission Hill puts on it’s concert series attracting some of the best musicians in the world to it’s outdoor amphitheatre. The likes of Michael Bolton, David Foster, Sheryl Crowe and Chris Botti have graced this beautiful venue. These exclusive concerts only happen in the summer and once a year so tickets are highly sought after and in short supply. This makes West Kelowna home of one of the must-see concert events in the Valley.
2. You can hike your heart rate up
Whether you are looking for a leisurely nature walk or an extreme uphill ascent West Kelowna is building a reputation as home to one of the best trail networks in the Valley. With Rose Valley Regional Park, Carrot Mountain and Bear Creek Falls the choice for trail seekers is seemingly endless. The length and intensity of these trails may differ but what remains the same is the beautiful views experienced on each one. From waterfalls to mountain or city vistas a hike in West Kelowna is sure to leave an impression.
3. You can eat amazing Okanagan fare
