Check out the many areas to walk, whether it be along the shoreline or the canal that runs from Okanagan Lake, winding it’s way alongside a golf course and developed areas and into Skaha Lake at the southern end of the City. Mid summer you can find hundreds of people of all ages riding tubes, air mattresses and other floating apparatus’s on a lazy two hour ride along the canal.

On the beach along the end of Okanagan Lake sits the SS Sicamous, an old and restored paddlewheeler that is now a permanent attraction. Check it out, it is a very cool sight.
