Autumn adventures go old school in Kelowna

Head Back to Cool with Hotel Zed’s Okanagan getaway

If you’ve been waiting out the summer crowds before scratching that travel itch, it’s time to explore Kelowna.

But smaller crowds aren’t the only reward of “shoulder season” travel!

Kelowna’s mild fall temperatures are ideal for exploring, pairing perfectly with deals from your go-to accommodation, where friendly hosts are keen to welcome B.C. locals looking to experience the destination to the fullest.

Along with outdoor adventures ranging from hiking and biking to fishing, paddling and much more, you’ll also enjoy cultural pursuits, a renowned food scene and of course, world-class wines.

And, when your destination of choice is Hotel Zed’s ‘70s-inspired downtown destination, your autumn getaway also brings you ‘Back to Cool.’

Adventuring ‘Old School’

Whether you’re appreciating a little adult time after the peak family travel season, or bringing the grandkids on a fabulously fun long-weekend getaway, this is where you want to be.

Proudly different from the ordinary, Hotel Zed Kelowna is in the heart of the city’s vibrant downtown, right across from Okanagan Lake, the beach and Kelowna City Park.

Up the fun factor with free roller skate or bike rentals – dare we say, the best way explore the beach front – then kick up your heels at the mini disco, complete with a perpetual fog machine, or head to the Ping Pong Lounge with its throwback video and board games!! Soak in the views from one of three rooftop patios – including one with a fire pit – or relax in the hot tub or sauna after the day’s adventures.

And we haven’t even mentioned the comic books in every room, the vinyl listening station, and – in case you want to show the grandkids how it was done before computers and smart phones – the typewriter station!
