Are you hoping to live in a beachfront town in British Columbia and looking for the ideal choice? For those who are zeroed in on Okanagan, the community of Penticton could be the ideal choice. It is one of the most beautiful areas of the city and it offers some of the very best views of the waterways. Though it is also a heavily tourism-focused community, there are many reasons to make this your year round home or even a second home. For many people, it is the natural beauty it has to offer that helps it to stand out overall, but it is also a vibrant community with a family focus and a diverse economy.
