Penticton BC: Between Two Lakes
The beautiful city of Penticton, BC, sits between two shining lakes. To the north, Okanagan Lake features sandy beachfront and a vibrant boardwalk filled with shops and restaurants. To the south, Skaha Lake provides more beachgoing and water sport opportunities, and is a popular place for families to visit during the sunny summers.
Penticton’s name is derived from the Okanagan language. Pente-hik-ton refers to the permanence of the natural flow of the lakes, eternally consistent season after season, and is often translated as “a place to stay forever.”
