    This is a fantastic place to visit in Penticton and spend time browsing through the titles. They had something for everyone.

    This was an amazing tour. The ship is in incredible condition and full of artifacts and educational information. The price was more than reasonable.

    Despite what you look, race feeling is just two meter in front of you. Tasty food is also available. If you wanna see the destruction race, wear older stuff. The dust will be horrible, but its worth!

    I have been visiting this gallery for years now and always find interesting art. I have also used their framing service and have always been very happy with the results. I especially enjoy Prema as she is so helpful.

    While out searching for geocaches in the Penticton area, my sister and I visited the Skaha Lake Eastside Road Nature Trust Conservation Area. After parking our car, we read the sign that provided interesting information about this conservation area, then entered through the gate. As we hiked along the provided trail, it sloped gently up, giving us a spectacular view of the lake on one side and rugged terrain on the other. We could see why bighorn sheep favor this area as their habitat. We did not see any today. A large expanse of open grassland is dotted with ponderosa pine and Douglas fir. We were successful in finding the geocache and returned to our vehicle, enjoying the towering cliffs and riparian scenery and along the way.

    This park and walkway was opened June, 2012 and is part of Penticton's park network. Built to preserve the creekside ecosystem, this area not only is a centralized trailhead but also contains a fenced-in, off-leash dog park. The dog park has potable water for your pet as well as benches and bike racks. The walk surface is covered in Cedar chips. It is named after Thomas Ellis, one of the first European immigrants to arrive in Penticton in 1865. The creek itself splits off from the Okanagan River and runs along Industrial Avenue, beside Penticton Regional Hospital. It is a great place to visit when in Penticton.

    Almost would not find this spot if you were not looking for it. Penticton's oldest and 1st cemetery, interesting wander as you read the headstones of the area pioneers and that of the first local police officer to be killed in the line of duty.

    Just a short way up the KVR trail out of Penticton towards Naramata, is an interesting story board about the 'Little Joe Train Wreck' which occurred in 1949. The CPR passenger train fell off the tracks when the clay bank collapsed under it . (A good reminder for all to stay away from the cliff edges!) No one was injured. The engineer was more worried about "Oh, my poor engine." The engines cowcatcher was retrieved from the lake and is on display. A little bit of fascinating BC history. Nice view of Penticton and OK Lake from there too.
