Unwinding at Hotels in Kelowna Before the Back to School Rush

Savouring a nice meal and a glass of Okanagan wine is a great way to relax during your stay at one of the hotels in Kelowna.

Summer has a funny way of sneaking past you. You blink, and before you know it, it’s already August and the back-to-school bonanza is upon you. But before you begrudgingly accept that summer has almost past, there’s still time to arrange a getaway to one of the hotels in Kelowna.

If you feel like you’ve spent your precious summer pulling weeds in the backyard, or sanding and staining your deck, you should consider treating yourself to one final retreat before the weather starts to deteriorate.

Recharge Your Batteries

If you’re tired of the daily tedium of life at home, or you’re starting to get a little cabin fever because you just don’t have time to get out much, it’s important to recognize this and make time for yourself.

Booking a stay at one of the hotels in Kelowna—even for a weekend—is a great way to unwind. By indulging in a little ‘me-time,’ you’ll be able to:

  • Remove stress
  • Refocus your priorities
  • Spend quality time with your significant other
  • Enjoy yourself
  • Explore Okanagan sights and attractions in the Kelowna area 

What About the Kids?

You love your children. Of that, there can be no doubt. But if you’ve spent a fair amount of your summer with them already, there’s no shame in wanting to sneak off for a getaway with your partner.

It’s important for couples to reconnect in a meaningful way now and again, and create new moments together. So, if you can leave the kids with the grandparents or an aunt and uncle, they’ll probably enjoy the change of scenery and your extended family will grow stronger. 

Make It a Family Affair

Of course, if your kids have spent the bulk of their summer vacation at soccer camp, heading off together for a family adventure might be exactly what you need. There are many family-friendly outings that can be arranged from Kelowna hotels:

  • Boat rentals
  • Orchard and farm visits
  • Museums
  • Beaches and parks
  • Shopping
  • Hiking and biking

Your children will appreciate having one last opportunity to get their sillies out before they hit the books, and you benefit from not having to do dishes, laundry or cleaning the house.

Getting Around Town

Driving your own vehicle is certainly a bonus if you’re staying at an Okanagan hotel. You’ll have the freedom to drive where you want, when you want.

However, if you’re flying in to Kelowna International Airport (YLW) for your visit, there are a number of other convenient modes of transport available to you:
