“The SS Sicamous is the largest surviving steam-driven stern wheeler in BC. The ship is open as a museum and wedding venue. Note: The dining room table at Casa Colina was built using timber salvaged from the pier where the SS Sicamous docked in Summerland.”

“Great little cafe and art gallery! We designed the bookshelf together and Peter made the small table tops and one table out the back!!! We are good friends with Chris, the owner and love this humble little place so much. Great soups and salads but get in early cause they sell out fast! They often have poetry nights and live music too!”

“Locataed at the foot of the scenic Penticton Creek walking path, this lovely japanese garden features a large pond filled with huge Koi and surrounded by traditional Japanses plantings. Enjoy the peace from the large floating deck in the middle of the pond- perhaps take your lunch and enjoy the peace, listening to the gurgling fountain and the gently lapping waves beyond as Penticton Creek spills into Okanagan Lake. If you've had enoug of outdoors, take a tour through the artgallery and pick up a souvenir made by local artisans at the gift shop. ”
