Life is pretty good when you choose to live, work and/or retire in the summer city of Penticton, BC. Penticton is a place where life markedly slows down during the hot, dry summer months. The beaches that surround our two lakes fill up with locals and tourists alike. All of them clamoring for their slice of heaven in the fresh lake water to cool themselves from the beating desert sun.
While Penticton is known as being one of the dryest, hottest climates in Canada, that doesn’t mean it has tumbleweed views. It’s quite the contrary where Penticton’s landscape is concerned. The city’s jaw dropping beauty can be witnessed from the thousands of photos posted online by awestruck travelers and locals where you will glimpse the surrounding scenery. However, even these impressive photos, do not do this enigmatic city justice. You truly have to experience the sand in your toes and languishing sunsets for yourself.
