Your dad deserves a Kelowna trip this Father’s Day!

Father’s Day is coming up fast and it’s time to figure out how to treat your dad! This year, forego the boring tie & pack of golf tees and treat your dad to the ultimate Father’s Day weekend in Kelowna! It’s just a beautiful, four-hour drive from Vancouver, or you can hop on a quick flight and be there in a flash! Let’s be honest, he would love the quality time with you and he definitely deserves it. We’ve put together a list of amazing Father’s Day experiences in Kelowna so you can get to planning.

Start your weekend at Accent Inns. From the moment you check in, you’ll feel like family. Which you are. Plus, you can spend your downtime at our fantastic outdoor pool. Or in your fantastic, air-conditioned room using our fantastic, free Wi-Fi. (Whatever you’re into!). Our Kelowna hotel is perfectly situated so that you can explore everything this city has to offer!

1. Dad-approved grub

You don’t become a world-renowned wine destination without having some unbelievable food to pair with it! We recommend hitting up Memphis Blues BBQ for some low-key, classic Father’s Day BBQ. Nothing says “thanks for everything you do” like ribs, right? If you’re feeling like something a little more local, visit RauDz for an amazing steak or other locally-sourced noms. For something special, why not hit up El Dorado for their epic Sunday brunch? Brunch isn’t reserved for Mother’s Day, after all.

2. Beer flights

There are countless opportunities to sample the local wines in Kelowna, but we’re here to talk about beer. Visit local craft beer faves Tree Brewing  or BNA  for a flight of their local brews. If your dad is really into beer, we recommend taking the beer tasting up a notch with a Kelowna Brewery Tour so you can do, er, comprehensive research on the subject. Hint: when you book your room with us, ask for a few of our custom craft-brewed Accent Inns Inn-dependent pilsners!

3. Golf

Can you even talk about a Father’s Day weekend without mentioning golf? If your dad’s idea of a good time is out on the green, he’s going to LOVE the Okanagan’s stunning courses. Take him for 18 holes at Harvest where you can enjoy panoramic orchard views. Or, if you want a little variety in your life, the Okanagan Golf Club offers two 18-hole championship courses: the Bear and the Quail.

4. Car show

The annual Boyd Autobody & Glass Father’s Day Charity Car Show is back with full horsepower this year! This Kelowna traditional expo will be held at City Park. Join the locals in this beloved tradition of taking in amazing cars, trucks, boats and motorcycles in the city’s scenic waterfront park. This year, they’re raising funds for the Child Advocacy Centre.

Of course, the possibilities are endless in Kelowna. Watersports, ziplining, wine tours, fishing….the list goes on. Whatever your dad—or a special dad or honourary-dad in your life—is into, you’ll find it here. Book now for Father’s Day weekend and we’ll throw in the duck!
