Sobre 400 kilo-me-tros (250 milha) a leste de Vancouver é o Okanagan Valley, da região local impulsionar-dores chamar "Napa do Norte."Na British Columbia cen-tral, o Okanagan é mais suave, dri­er, e sol-nier que a costa, which has giv­en rise to a bur­geon­ing vinho indús-tria.

While the Okanagan has nei­ther the num­ber of winer­ies nor the exten­sive tourist infra­struc­ture of its south-of-the-bor­der idol – yet – there’s bom vinho feito aqui, plen­ty to do, e montes de opor-tu-ni-dades no turismo, imobiliário, and oth­er indus­tries. With a chain of lakes and the moun­tains near­by, o Okanagan nat­ur­al set­ting ganha elogios, também.

The Okanagan has his­tor­i­cal­ly been an agri­cul­tur­al area. Conhecido por "beach­es and peach­es,” it’s long been a sum­mer vaca­tion spot for fam­i­lies who come to swim in the lakes and hike in the hills, and a win­ter get­away for “snow­birds” from oth­er parts of Canada.

Agora one of the fastest-grow­ing regions in British Columbia, the Okanagan is pop­u­lar year-round with retirees, sec­ond-home own­ers, and younger fam­i­lies seek­ing to escape from urban life.
