I am very fortunate that I get to call Kelowna home. I live in a beautiful valley in the Okanagan. We are a city of about 180,000 people and are known for our hot summers as we are also considered a desert. Kelowna gets a lot of tourists both in the summer and winter. In the summer, we have golfing, beaches and several local wineries that put on wine tours. In the winter, we have a couple of ski mountains to choose from.
