A hire car is a convenient way to access and participate in the endless activities the water has to offer in the Kelowna area. Most of the town is on the banks of Lake Okanagan, so you may spend days sunbathing on sandy beaches or boating for instance.
One of the famous spots in Kelowna is the Lake Monster named Ogopogo which has characteristics similar to those described in the legend of the Loch Ness Monster. The story of Ogopogo outdates Nessie by 80 years, first described by Native people in the 1800's. Some of the most convincing sightings are those of 30 people in 1926 who all say that they saw something large and serpentine splashing about in the water. Come to Kelowna and drive to Lake Monster with your car to make the judgment for yourself and decide if you think the stories are fact or fiction.
Another place you could explore with your hire car is the fertile Okanagan Valley which is home to countless wineries; one of the most praised is the Okanagan Villa, home of Vibrant Wines. The massive estate's landscape offers breathtaking views which showcase lush rows of grapevines stretching across rolling hills. The lavish gardens explode with colour and regularly host live Jazz bands on the weekend. While being guided by an experienced wine connoisseur, this relaxing and casual environment will offer not only an educational experience but a lasting memory.
