Об этом 400 километров (250 км) east of Vancouver is the Долина Оканаган, the region local boost­ers call “Napa North.” In cen­tral British Columbia, the Okanagan is milder, dri­er, and sun­nier than the coast, which has giv­en rise to a bur­geon­ing wine indus­try.

While the Okanagan has nei­ther the num­ber of winer­ies nor the exten­sive tourist infra­struc­ture of its south-of-the-bor­der idol – yet – there’s good wine made here, plen­ty to do, and scads of oppor­tu­ni­ties in tourism, недвижимости, and oth­er indus­tries. With a chain of lakes and the moun­tains near­by, the Okanagan’s nat­ur­al set­ting earns kudos, слишком.

The Okanagan has his­tor­i­cal­ly been an agri­cul­tur­al area. Known for “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.

Теперь 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.
