Drinks & Nightlife
This is a very close by pub - they often have live music, pool nights, comedians, karaoke, and a $3 burger special. They also brew their beer and ale, which is pretty good! A few minutes' walk away.

Don't go for the food (it's terrible) - go for the groovy retro decor, live music, vinyl, and open mic nights. This is a fun hangout where artists and interesting characters like to be themselves.

This is the best place to find 'interesting' wines - they do regular merlots and cabernets, but they also have a whole line of rich fruit wine such as cherry & blackberry (my favourite!).

It's the most amazing German food! Generous helpings, great beer, and a fantastic patio make this a worthwhile trip. The building itself is amazing and worth a walk-through, it's a big carved-beamed fairy tale inn designed by the brothers Grimm.

This is a nice easy walking/cycling trail. It used to be the old KVR steam railway line connecting Penticton to Chute Lake and Kelowna, but now it's a mostly-flat, max 2.2% grade trail with spectacular views and a train tunnel through the rock. One of our favourite walks - round trip is about 8.5 km from parking lot to the tunnel and back.

Beautiful natural area, great for seeing wildlife (bighorn sheep, mountain goat, birds). Also home to the Vaseux Lake Bird Observatory and bird banding station. No powered boats allowed, so it's nice and peaceful. Good fishing, too. Watch out for poison ivy though!
