The best things in life are Free.
In Penticton, the best things in life are possible because they’re free from the constraints and dependence on fuel. Penticton brings freedom from fumes, from pollution, from gridlock, from parking and from gas money. By removing all of those stressors, we have the opportunity to create the freedom of possibility; The freedom from fuel brings freedom to explore, to discover, to indulge.
Driving in an unfamiliar (or even familiar) place means passing by some off-the-beaten-path gems and gravitating toward what looks familiar, and safe. We’re inspiring people to park the car and wander the streets; to pop into a boutique store, a tucked away cafe, and a lakefront patio. The freedom to explore is a freedom to discover the gems that are typically enjoyed by locals only.
If the best things in life are Free, the best feeling is Freedom.
