The Kelowna singles scene

Kelowna residents know that that the lifestyle here is as good as it gets. After all, how can you beat waking up each morning to mountains, wineries and Lake Okanagan right on your doorstep?

In fact, with over 40% of the population currently unattached,1 the question isn't are there any Kelowna singles but where can I meet them?

More local dating tips:

Lake Okanagan in winter
Get back to nature

Life in the Okanagan Valley means having one of Canada’s most picturesque landscapes on your doorstep – so it makes sense to explore the outdoors on your dates. In the summer months Knox Mountain Park is the ideal place to start: make your way to the summit to take in the unbeatable views or cool off together at Paul’s Tomb Beach.

The winter months might be a bit frostier but you can certainly still get out and enjoy Kelowna. Singles looking for winter date ideas should head lakeside – a waterfront walk can be a thing of true beauty in the cold, with snow capped mountains dazzlingly reflected in still water. The brave can follow this up with a winter picnic; the chilly should think about heading to the Tree Brewing Beer Institute for a restorative craft pint and a warming homemade pretzel.

Head for the hills

Heading to the hills above Lake Okanagan will lead you up through the vines and into one of Kelowna’s best date ideas. This city is in the heart of BC wine country and, with over 100 wineries in a 90 min drive from downtown, you really are spoiled for choice when it comes to a romantic day spent among the grapes.

For a truly unforgettable date, spend a day following one of one of Kelowna’s many gorgeous local wine trails. Or, if you prefer to combine your wining with dining, pick one winery and settle in for a meal. For pure sophistication, Mission Hill Family Estate is a must-visit, mixing stunning lake views with elegant architecture and cutting edge cuisine. A more relaxed date can be had at The Vibrant Vine – think artistic bottles, live music and delicious organic pizza.

Couple having a coffee together
Delicious dining and cosy coffee

Of course you can also find many great restaurants closer to town. For a truly special date, Waterfront Wines should be top of the list. This award-winning restaurant focuses on fresh ingredients gathered from local suppliers, so to dine here is truly to get a taste of Kelowna. Work up an appetite with a waterfront walk first!

If you tend to go for more relaxed first meetings, then try an EliteSingles fan favourite: the coffee date. With 60% of our members picking coffee as their preferred first date,2 a cafe meeting is usually a fairly solid bet – especially  when you pick a location like Giobean. Warm, welcoming and offering some of BC’s best espresso, Giobean is a little burst of Italy in the middle of Kelowna. Cozy in winter and with a spacious patio in summer, it’s ideal date material.
