5 Things Locals Notice When Summer is Over

It’s the peak of summer. You wake up on a beautiful day and are ready to jump into all the Okanagan summer has to offer. Then it hits you: so are all the out-of-towners. Oh well, it’s only this busy until Labour Day anyway.

Now that September has come, here are 5 things locals notice when summer is over.

1. Less Snarling Behind the Wheel

You know the summer rush is over when you sit in your vehicle and tap along your favourite song, instead of clenching the steering wheel in frustration and watch your knuckles turn white.

No more stalled traffic during non-rush hours and countless motorhomes and trailers on the road. We’re back to the expected everyday Kelowna traffic flows and delays. What’s better than less traffic? Keep reading.

 

2. Decrease In Tourists

Tourists taking in all of our beauty at a slower pace….
As an Alberta native, I can attest to our love for the beautiful Okanagan Valley as a summer vacation destination and a need to take it all in. It may be crowded on the roads and some hand gestures might get exchanged, but come end of August it’s back to the beautiful blue and regular back-to-school traffic.

3. Enjoying the Beach (finally!)

Beautiful sandy beaches, warm water, swing lines, paddle boarding…all enjoyed from afar as you drive into a packed beach parking lot and have to figure out where to go now.

It comes as no surprise that such well-kept and modern locations like Gyro Beach Park, Rotary Beach Park and Lower Mission’s hidden gem, Sarsons Beach Park, attract local and visiting beachgoers. With the visitors gone, you can now head to your favourite beach and enjoy the great amenities, rent a kayak or paddle board and play some volleyball with your friends.

After all, it’s still officially summer until September 22nd!

 

4. No Crazy Long Lineups at Your Favourite Local Hotspots

Last minute lunch plans at Earls? No problem. Craft beers with family and friends at BNA? We’re in.

With less folk in town who want to enjoy the Farm to Table eateries, scenic winery lunches, local craft breweries and wineries, you’re in luck. There is plenty of sunshine and summer warmth left to explore all the great food and drinks Kelowna has to offer. No rush and no lineups.

Out of ideas where to go? Check out this list of all the local places that will treat your inner adventurer and foodie.

 

5. Enjoy The Quiet

Kelowna summers are packed with amazing events happening all over town. Live indoor and outdoor concerts, family events in parks, and fun times on the lake.

As much as we love all the happenings, there is joy to be found in the quiet. Have your family hop on their bikes and cruise down Lakeshore or hike up Knox Mountain and enjoy the view. Head downtown and walk the lakeshore without the crowds. Get up early and enjoy a cup of your favourite beverage at your local coffee shop. The options are endless.

 

I love all the activities that come with summer. After all, the Okanagan lifestyle is one of the reasons my family and I were thrilled to relocate to Kelowna. You can live here too and see for yourself how the seasons change. Check Kelowna Life to learn how.

Back to School

It’s that time of year again where days start to get shorter, the air gets cooler, and the leaves change colours. Summer is nearing its end once again, which can only mean one thing–school is just around the corner. Hopefully, you’ve had a great, relaxing summer with your friends and family. I hope you got to spend as much time as possible lying on a beach taking in the sun.

Summer or fall, those that live in The Ponds of the Upper Mission get to live a relaxing and fun life no matter the season. The residents enjoy the pleasures of the lake, mountains, and the beautiful views of the Okanagan Valley. There’s an abundance of hiking trails, parks, and natural ponds to spend your days. Add untamed access to mountain biking trails and it’s a great spot to enjoy your time off.

Another reason that makes The Ponds a great place to live is the proximity to some of the best schools Kelowna has to offer. Established in 1994, Anne McClymont Elementary is a fantastic school for kids to grow up at. Hosting students from kindergarten until grade six, it offers a great learning environment as kids go through the early stages of their education and development.

Chute Lake Elementary is another great school. Opened back in 2009 and built to high, environmentally sustainable standards, it had significant additions done in 2011. The school grounds connect to Chute Lake Park which is available for students for special field events. With a mission statement, “to develop inquiring, respectful and industrious young people who help create a better world by being critical, creative and compassionate thinkers,” Chute Lake Elementary is a great place to start your kids’ education.

Not only do The Ponds already have two top-end schools, the community is currently developing a new school to be opened in September of 2019. This will be a junior middle school that gives kids a chance to continue their education without needing a difficult commute.

When figuring out where you want to set up your family, the quality of schools has to be one of the most important things to consider. The Ponds of the Upper Mission are not just a beautiful and fun location, but also an area filled with new, quality schools for kids of all ages. You can live here too.

Water’s Edge North – Rebuilt.

The Okanagan Valley is renowned for its laid-back lifestyle. With access to a wide variety of activities no matter the time of year, Kelowna is a great city to raise a family. Whether you enjoy water sports in the summer or getting on the slopes in the winter, there’s never a dull moment. If you were like me when I moved here, I didn’t know where in Kelowna to set up. Where was the best place to raise my family? I might be a bit biased, but it’s hard to go wrong no matter where you move as this city is filled with great neighbourhoods. However, there are hidden gems throughout the city. One of which is a community called Water’s Edge North. A small neighbourhood close to Okanagan Lake, Water’s Edge North is a beautiful and scenic location in the Lower Mission area of Kelowna.

Located just steps from the Okanagan Lake, MKS Resources has worked tirelessly to create a unique blend of architecture, and inspiring design with a great location that has fabulous views, serene surroundings, and fantastic amenities. All that hard work has come together to create the Water’s Edge North community. Just a short distance from restaurants, destination resorts such as  Eldorado Hotel & Manteo Resorts. It is also close to water parks, orchards and Mission Creek Greenway. This neighbourhood has everything you could ever want in a community.

Not only is the Water’s Edge a beautiful community with a great location, but it’s also a community that has become stronger in the past year. In July of 2017, there was a massive fire in the neighbourhood that forced 176 homes to evacuate. It was a tragedy that devastated many families, or at least that’s what you would expect. Instead, the community used the fire as a tool to bring them closer together. They rallied together to rebuild their homes and do everything they could to help each other in a difficult time.

Tragedy is something no one ever wants to deal with. However, how one deals with tragedy shows the character of those involved. It can be easy to fall apart when something terrible happens, but when you get back up after a disaster, it shows true strength of character. That’s what the Water’s Edge did after a fire devastated their community, they got up and rebuilt. Now as the community continues to rebuild, the people are stronger than ever. For those reasons alone it is a great community to set up your family. With a strong, inclusive community, and plenty of things to do throughout the year, who wouldn’t want to live in the Water’s Edge? You can live here too. Check out Kelowna Life to learn how.

Kelowna Yacht Club – More Than Just Boats

In 1945 when Kelowna was still just a small town, there wasn’t much of a boating community. A surprising fact considering Kelowna is home to the beautiful Okanagan Lake. With nothing in place, a group of boat owners began to develop the Kelowna Yacht Club. It started small, with the founders initially focusing on building launching facilities and a clubhouse. However, this only provided the base for the club, and since then has blossomed into the beautiful community that it is today.

Yacht club When you think of a yacht club, you may form a quick opinion or expectations. However, the Kelowna Yacht Club is different from your average boating club. It’s a non-profit organization with a heavy focus on community. Thousands of children and young adults over the years have learned to sail through lessons that are open to the public. Accessibility to these lessons is as inclusive as possible in order to give everyone the opportunity to learn. Each year roughly 30 adults complete the learn-to-sail course where boat owners donate their boats and time to help develop the next generation of boaters.

In addition to teaching youth about the world of boating, the Kelowna Yacht Club prides itself on giving opportunities to people who might not get them elsewhere. They host the Blind Fishing Derby which offers 30 people with blindness or sight impairment the opportunity to fish with the assistance of crew members. Additionally, they host the Boat for Hope event which gives kids with physical and developmental challenges a fun day on the water.

It was the emphasis on family and community that originally drew me to the Kelowna Yacht Club. Not just the fast boats – I know hard to believe. The core values that always guide me in what I do both personally and professionally are family and community. It has served me well over the years in building my business and is the foundation upon which I view my relationships and friendships with my clients.

While I may not get out on the water as much as I would like, I joined the Kelowna Yacht Club for a reason. In addition to being part of a supporting community, I can’t think of a better way to spend time with family and friends than being on the water surrounded by the beauty and splendor that is the Okanagan. You can live here too. Check out Kelowna Life to learn how.

World Population Day

World Population Day is a day that takes place annually to raise awareness of global population issues. Established in 1989, it was inspired by the massive public interest in Five Billion Day, July 11th, 1987. In celebration of World Population Day, let’s take a look at Kelowna and how it has grown over the years as well as how it’s expected to grow in the future.

Father Pandosy MissionKelowna was first established in 1859 by Father Charles Pandosy. Setting up just one school and church, it was a very small community for the next half-century. In the 1901 census, Kelowna had a population of just 261. However, over the next 10 years the city began to see growth and by 1911 had grown to a respectable size of 1661. Ever since that point, Kelowna has been one of the fastest growing cities in all of Canada. By 1940 the population had grown to 5000 and then in less than 20 years, the population hit 10,000.

By 1970, Kelowna saw the biggest population spike in Kelowna’s history. The population went from 19,000 to 51,000 in 1976. This significant increase firmly planted Kelowna on the map. It was during this time it was discovered that Kelowna had uniquely fertile soil. This discovery lead to the production of amazing wines (lucky for me) and fruit which in turn contributed to the population spike in the 70s. Contributing to Kelowna being a more desirable location to live were the addition of two post-secondary institutions – Okanagan College and University of British Columbia Okanagan Campus. Since then, Kelowna has steadily been increasing to the point where it now has a population of 127,000.

I am proud to say that I live in the 3rd largest city in British Columbia (22nd largest city in Canada). Growing faster on average than the rest of Canada, Kelowna is expected to continue to move up the Canadian population list. With Kelowna recently being ranked as the number one city to start and grow a business in Canada by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, this growth can only be expected to continue. Over the next 20 years the growth of Kelowna has been projected by BC Statistics to increase by roughly 50,000 residents.

To anticipate this growth, the City of Kelowna launched an initiative called Imagine Kelowna. Imagine Kelowna – a vision for the community, created by the community will help guide the community and the City on planning priorities of future projects. The main focuses of Imagine Kelowna will be to build healthy neighborhoods that support people from all walks of life, embrace a more diverse transportation options, grow more vibrant urban centres.

Kelowna is a thriving city and an incredible place to call home. I look forward to a future where we build a community that is inclusive, sustainable, welcoming of lifestyles and economic opportunities for not only my family but for all. You can live here too. Check out Kelowna Life to learn how.

Canada Day Weekend Fun

I don’t know about you but Canada Dayis one my favourite holidays to celebrate with friends and family.  It reminds me how blessed and lucky we are to live in a country with such great history and culture. Over the years of living in Kelowna, I’ve experienced the plethora of things that one can do to enjoy the day. This city is filled with beautiful scenery, convenient trails, not to mention the delicious food and amazing wineries.  There are activities for everyone to enjoy.

Whether you’re new to Kelowna or have lived here your entire life, everyone can appreciate the beauty of the Okanagan. With so much to be seen, there couldn’t be a better way to experience the nature and wildlife of Kelowna than the Okanagan Cycling Tour. Taking place on the historic Kettle Valley Rail Trail, the event starts at the famous Myra Canyon and makes its way to Penticton. Despite being an 80km event it’s a ride that the whole family can enjoy.

For those worried about the distance (aka don’t have the cardio like me), there are five rest stops along the way. Additionally, there are two shorter distances at 40km and 20km that start at Chute Lake Resort and Glenfir respectively.

For those who are looking for a more relaxing way to spend the day (now you’re talking my language) but still want to get into nature, there are still plenty of options. Kirschner Mountain is a very popular spot for geocaching. Geocaching is an outdoor activity where you use GPS to search for hidden containers or caches all over the world. It’s a fun way for a family to get out of the house and into nature for a good old fashion scavenger hunt.Elderly couple that have hiked to the top of a mountain in Kelowna

Another fantastic spot to check out if you’re interested in wildlife is the community of Wilden. From predators in the sky like the Red-tailed Hawk to critters on the ground like the Muskrat, Wilden is filled with all kinds of animals. It’s a great place to explore and the best place in Kelowna to see wildlife.

If nature isn’t your style and you just want to relax with your family with some good food and cold drinks than don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Kelowna is filled with a huge variety of restaurants and a plethora of local wineries. Lower Mission is a community with many local restaurants and authentic cuisine. With a wide variety of options including Mexica, Italian, Thai, and Local food, there’s something to satisfy everyone’s appetite.  Don’t forget about our downtown area – with multiple festivities for you to check out.

 At the end of the day,  when everyone needs some time to relax you can enjoy one of the many Vineyards in Upper Mission such as Summerhill, St Hubertus and Cedar Creek. I can’t think of a better way to finish celebrating Canada Day than with a glass of wine shared amongst friends and family. You can live here too. Check out Kelowna Life to learn how.

Feature Kelowna Real Estate Professional: Rob Nelson

Rob Nelson founded Kelowna Life Real Estate Group in 2015 after deciding to move and enter the real estate market in Kelowna. His passion for Kelowna, and the Okanagan lifestyle has been a substantial part of Kelowna Life’s success.

Rob and his team of expert real estate professionals not only specialize in real estate, but truly believe in the City of Kelowna and love promoting the Okanagan.

Life Before Kelowna Life

Prior to founding Kelowna Life in 2015, Rob was an owner operator in the competitive nightclub industry in Alberta for over 20 years.

The decision to change career paths, and move to beautiful Kelowna happened while vacationing with his spouse, Andrea, in the summer prior to founding Kelowna Life. Rob and Andrea instantly fell in love with Kelowna’s gorgeous natural beauty, active lifestyle, and incredible community feel. It was during a dinner that summer on the stunning waterfront boardwalk at the Eldorado Hotel in the Lower Mission that they looked at each other and at the same time said, “we should live here.’

48 hours later, Rob and Andrea had purchased a brand new home in the Upper Mission, were on a flight home to Alberta to put an exit strategy into motion, and began building Kelowna Life.

In Rob’s first full year he finished in the Top 1% of all Century 21 Real Estate Agents in Canada in 2016, and as a group they won a CENTURION® Team Producer award in 2017.

The Okanagan Lifestyle

Rob attributes his success and unique approach to real estate from his previous experience and dedication to promoting the Okanagan.

The climate is incredible with four distinct seasons, and it strikes the perfect balance between a small town feel and big city amenities, including a world class hospital, and an international airport. Because of this, Kelowna and the Okanagan area are rare gems. It’s no longer just a place you go to vacation or retire. We have many young people moving here to raise their families or to succeed professionally.

Rob has a young family, so he knows first hand how great the Okanagan and Kelowna are for raising a family. There are so many outdoor activities to keep them busy and healthy including beaches, skiing, hiking, as well as extracurriculars for the kids, from dance to hockey. It also offers great education, including several college options and the University of British Columbia.

The thriving downtown core offers tons of local restaurants and shops, festivals, a great art district, as well as local wineries throughout the Okanagan Valley.

Economically, there is a growing business sector with a huge entrepreneurial community.

With so many great options, there is always something to do.

It’s clear that Rob and the team at Kelowna Life Real Estate Group truly believe in the City of Kelowna and love promoting the Okanagan. The growing team reflects these values and continues to strive for the best.

Cultivating Expertise in the Real Estate Profession

Rob’s background and personal interest in Kelowna has given him the tools to approach real estate from a customer service and business background as opposed to a more traditional sales relationship with his clients.

He has learned from the positive and negative personal experiences of purchasing and selling properties and businesses. These experiences allowed him to understand the ups and downs of buying and selling, and how to apply these experiences.

His previous industry is highly competitive and has a high failure rate. After a successful 20+ years in the hospitality industry, and work with agents in British Columbia and Alberta, Rob was confident that he could also excel and stand out in the real estate industry by applying the business principles he’d learned and his excellent work ethic.

These experiences, combined with his educational background has resulted in an ambitious work ethic and a team of focused experts who work diligently for their clients and constantly strive to exceed expectations.

Rob successfully understands how hard you have to work to maintain the right to continue to work with your clients and how you have to deliver on what you have promised.

Rob and the rest of the agents at Kelowna Life will continue to grow their incredible team of like-minded, service oriented, business minded individuals to maintain the high level of service their clients have become accustomed to.

They strive to continue to earn the privilege of representing their clients with their real estate needs while earning their referrals which have become the bloodline of their success.

Rob is truly thankful for all of their amazing clients and proud of Kelowna Life’s accomplishments in such a short time.
