What To Do In Kelowna In 36 Hours

So you’re visiting Kelowna for 36 hours, which feels like a short amount of time, but really it could be a Friday afternoon to Sunday noon trip. My friend from university, Shelby, came to visit us for the first time since we moved and she wanted to see the best of what Kelowna has to offer. We pulled out all the stops. Wine tastings, golf, hiking, brunch, and the beach. Yes, you’ll see we went down to Summerland which technically isn’t Kelowna, but we like a lot of wineries in that area, and wanted to be able to visit some other friends who were vacationing down that way at the same time. Here’s everything we were able to fit in through the weekend. Enjoy!

SeaWheeze lives up to all the hype. It’s a weekend experience full of running, yoga, and partying. We are big fans of the overall experience, and will always be putting our names down for this weekend. It’s tricky to get in since SeaWheeze entry is based on a lottery.

Unlike other race lotteries, you don’t have to put your credit card details in, which I think means a lot of people put their names down and then bail when they win the opportunity to register. Justin got in for 2019, and while I didn’t get a chance to run, I had an equally fun time spectating Justin and fellow runners.

Trail races are an entirely different game. This race is one of 3 in the series: Big White, Myra Bellevue, and Knox Mountain.
