Picture this: Long sunny days, two lakes, sandy beaches, wine and craft beer tastings, a world-class cuisine scene, hiking and biking trails right outside your doorstep, and ZERO traffic jams with an average commute of under 10 minutes.
There are so many advantages to living the idyllic, four-season lifestyle in Penticton – and remote workers and families throughout Metro Vancouver are catching on.
Artsy, outdoorsy, and entrepreneurial, the South Okanagan city offers a chance to escape the urban grind and seek more adventure. Penticton appeals to Vancouverites who are looking for better housing bang for their buck, a more affordable way of living, and a healthier work-life balance.
