Getaway to West Kelowna with some Staycation and Sweetheart Deals

Going on a getaway doesn’t mean you have to travel far – some of the best getaways are the ones that are close to home. There are so many benefits to getting out and exploring our local regions including reducing your carbon footprint, supporting the local economy as well as saving you time as you don’t have to travel as far.

Sometimes a change from the ordinary routines of life is just what is needed to feel refreshed. So, shake off those January blues, create some new memories with a local getaway and discover something new!

Below you will find some tips on how to plan for the perfect staycation getaway, along with some accommodation specials from our lakefront resorts. #explorelocal

Tips on how you can make the most of your local staycation.

  1. A holiday is when you leave your home. Look to do something different from your regular routine, such as a stay at a hotel or BnB. Be sure to disrupt your normal routine which will add excitement to your staycation.
  2. Make a list of some places that you have been meaning to go to or check out – you know those places that you never go to because you are always too busy.
  3. Part of the fun of going on a vacation is planning. Get in vacation mode and plan what you want to do and see. Some great resources to plan your getaway include tourism or industry association websites like visitwestside.com, visitpenticton.com, thewestsidewinetrail.com, tourismkelowna.com.
  4. Once you have started your staycation, unplug and try to only check your phone during a preset time. Do not use your phone for planning once you are settled in, rather use printed visitor guides, maps, or recommendations from the front desk staff.
  5. When you are out exploring, take pictures and buy mementos.
  6. Enjoy exploring your local region!
