Activities

They also rent child carriers, child trailers, catch'em Tag Alongs, and Trail-a-Bikes.

Bring your sunscreen and get a tan! You are on the water it can get very hot so bring something to drink, and wear sunscreen and a hat! Don't have a float? Coyote Cruises will help you there.

Youth Activities

There are many popular Penticton youth activities, but one enjoyed by the entire family is the LocoLanding Adventure Park. Located just around the corner at 75 Riverside Drive, the entire family can enjoy mini golf, zoom around the track on the Go Karts, or bounce into each other in bumper boats. ut it will take the more adventurous to fly through the air doing back flips on the Monkey Motion ride, super bounce with Areoball, or climb Rockwall.

Beaches

Most of our guests come for the beautiful beaches and warm weather. As the Lake Okanagan is right outside our door, you will probably enjoy this beach primarily. It runs the length of Lakeshore Drive West. On the western end of the beach is the Heritage Shipyard Museum with the SS Sicamous. The SS Sicamous is a large five decked sternwheeler built by the Canadian Pacific Railway for lake service between the fruit communities of Penticton, Kelowna, and Vernon.

Hiking

There are many wonderful walks in and around Penticton. Some are simply country roads with orchards bracketing the view of the lakes. Others wander through aromatic pine forests surrounding the farms and wineries. In addition, we added some of the guided tour operators that specialize in outdoor activities. Trail and road conditions will change, so trail users must take personal responsibility for their own safety.

Parks

There are many wonderful parks in and around Penticton. Some are noted for their views of the lake, and others are unique in what they offer. From skate boarding to rose gardens, there are more than just a few for you to explore and enjoy. Many of Penticton's parks offer a range of features and amenities, guaranteeing that you will find something to appeal to you - whether it is outdoor recreation, swimming, suntanning, or just laying on the grass.

Kettle Valley Railway Trail

The Kettle Valley Railway, a subsidiary of the Canadian Pacific Railway, operated in the Thompson-Okanagan region of southern British Columbia from 1915 to the beginning in 1961, with the final train running in 1989. Much of the railroad's original route has been converted to a multi-use recreational trail, known as the Kettle Valley Rail Trail, which carries the Trans-Canada Trail through this part of British Columbia.

Beach Cruise

Every year in late June the Penticton Historic Automobile Association Society hosts the Peach City Beach Cruise. This is the event not to miss for an array of over 600 antique and classic cars and music. As registration occurred at the SS Sicamous, many participants stay at the Rochester Resort Motel.

Penticton Casino

The Penticton Casino is located on the Lakeshore Drive. If you enjoy gambling, check it out. If you enjoy a quiet restful sleep, consider staying at the Rochester Resort! Walk back along Lakeshore Drive. We will leave a light on for you!
