The Okanagan is the most beautiful place I've been to on the planet. Crystal clear lakes perfect for swimming in the hot summer days and spectacular desert and mountain scenery. It is too often passed up for the tourist traps of the rockies, but make sure to include at least a few days here, and Penticton is the best place to see it from. The drives south to Osoyoos and north to Kelowna are both truly spectacular.
