4) Kelowna, British Columbia

Kelowna is the Okanagan word for “grizzly bear” and is a lakeside city located in British Columbia. With a fairly large Canadian population of over 180,000 metro residents, Kelowna is a geographic tourist destination in the north with its proximity to admired landmarks such as Bellevue Canyon, Pinnacle Rock, Crawford Falls, Know Mountain, Dilworth Mountain, and more. The scenic city thrives on tourism-driven income and offers an array of outdoor activities including hiking, boating, biking, skiing, wine tasting, and other winter athletics. Kelowna is a rather modest and well rounded city, however it is home to major stadiums and attractions including Prospera Place, the Apple Bowl, the Big White Ski Resort, and festivals such as the Kelowna Hydrofest and the Center of Gravity festival. Retirees can settle down in Kelowna to enjoy varied seasons and easy access to nearby major cities such as Vancouver.
