    My home is on the city bus route so you can get out and explore the semi-arid desert like landscapes of the Interior of BC on your own. Swimming, in the back yard pool from May through September, Hiking, Biking, Tennis and The Kamloops Bike Ranch, just across the road so if you have a mountain bike you will love staying here.

    Our town has a Long boarding park, Mountain bike trails, A short hike from downtown to Peterson Creek waterfall, Kenna Cartwright hiking park or floating down the river in summer as well as free concerts in Riverside Park every night in July and August. The BC Wildlife Park is a rehab center for animals that is on the city bus route if you want to familiarize yourself with animals from Grizzly bears to Elk or Eagles and many more. Canada Day offers an amazing multi cultural celebration at Riverside Park on July 1st. There is a wild flower festival at Sun Peaks in summer and the first weekend in August, the PowWow is not to be missed! Also in August check out Hot Night in the City if you are interested in the Rotary Ribfest cook-off or seeing hundreds of vintage/muscle cars in the blocked off main streets of Kamloops.
