Hi folks!
So, after much consideration, I think I may be allowing myself to soon be persuaded by my honey to look at loving to the Kamloops/Kwlowna area. We would be moving from Edmonton-ish, Alberta.
B.C in general has been in our sights for the "five-year plan", BUT. We love Vancouver Island! I know going to Kamloops is closer than we are now, but's it's definitely no Van. Isle! Don't get me wrong, we love a lot that B.C. has to offer...hell, with relatives in Kimberley area, we don't even mind Cranbrook. But my question is, how do people that are fans of an ocean-view find it living in B.C.'s interior?? How is it for vegan-freindly-ness around there? In the Okanagan can't be too bad, right? Fruit and all....convince me!

Formerly onestrangegirl, by golly!

Kelowna has more to offer than Kamloops in the vegan realm but isn't a vegan paradise. If you love wine and love visiting wineries then you'll love living in Kelowna. Lots of great fruit too. And you're only 4-5 hour drive away to Vancouver.

Van Isle!!!!!!

I was born in Kamloops. It's kind of worse than Cranbrook (and I grew up near Cranbrook in Lethbridge and still don't hate it!). But Kelowna is much better. Both have gorgeous summers!

Kamloops isn't very vegan friendly. Kelowna isn't bad! I like the interior a lot. But Van Isle! :)
