Plan Your 2024 Spring Break Family Getaway in Penticton

Plan a fun family getaway to Penticton, BC this Spring Break! With plenty of family friendly activities and outdoor adventures, Penticton is the perfect spot to make memories that last forever.

Family Adventures in Penticton

With the weather warming up, it’s the perfect time for outdoor adventures with the family! Just 45 minutes out of Penticton, Nickel Plate Nordic Centre is a great spot for some family snowshoeing or cross country skiing.

Swing by Apex Mountain Resort for epic downhill skiing or snowboarding, where you can also indulge in tubing and skating! Before hitting the slopes, swing by the Penticton Visitor Centre to pick up exclusive discounted Apex Lift Tickets (Adult, Youth and Teen discounts), which gets you a whopping 25% off ski and snowboard rentals too!

Feeling the urge for some outdoor escapades without straying too far from town? How about a thrilling round of disc golf at one of our local courses or perhaps a leisurely bike ride? The Rotary Marina View Disc Golf Course is perfect for all levels, including beginners and kids! Don’t forget to bring your bikes and explore the Lake-to-Lake Bike Route or make a pit stop at the Penticton Youth Park (one of the largest parks of it’s kind in B.C.) for some two-wheeled fun along the picturesque waterfront boardwalks.

If you would rather leave your wheels at home, no problem! You can rent electric scooters from Sparrow Scooters or bikes of all sizes from one of our many bike shops, some even offering delivery straight to your door.

For those cooler days or rainy spells, dive into indoor excitement at Hoodoo Adventures‘ climbing gym or delve into Penticton’s rich history and culture at the Penticton Museum & Archives, where interactive exhibits and family-friendly activities await.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Ignite The Arts Festival from March 22nd to March 31st, 2024! With free community events, workshops, educational programs and dazzling live performances, it’s a feast for the senses you won’t want to miss!
