Whether you’re visiting Osoyoos for Spring Break or staying at Watermark Beach Resort for a relaxing getaway, there are plenty of great things to do in Spring. Osoyoos has plenty of great weather and beautiful scenery, and spring is the perfect time to visit this vacation hot spot and experience a quiet, relaxing getaway.
- Go Golfing
It may technically still be winter, but here in Osoyoos, golf season is in full swing! Sonora Dunes and the Osoyoos Golf Club opened courses a few weeks ago, and three other South Okanagan golf courses will be opening in March. With the trees beginning to bud and tulips beginning to grow, Spring is a wonderful time to take in a round of golf in Osoyoos. Watermark Beach Resort even offers golfing vacation packages!
- Osoyoos Model Railroad
The Osoyoos Model Railroad is fun for kids of all ages. This incredible space is 4,000 square feet and features 1,800 model houses and 18,000 hand-painted “people”. Multiple computer controlled trains run simultaneously on more than 2 kilometres of track. Best of all, this lovely family attraction is open year-round!
- Nk’Mip Desert Cultural Centre
The heritage and culture of the Okanagan native community is an important part of life in the South Okanagan. The Nk’Mip Desert Cultural Centre is an architecturally stunning interpretive centre with exhibits, galleries, and educational displays. The centre is open 3 days a week in February and starting in March, the popular tourist attraction will be open from Tuesday – Saturday.
- Take in The Blooms
Osoyoos and the surrounding South Okanagan region is home to countless acres of orchards. In April, the hills and valleys are flooded with colour and white blooms as the orchard trees blossom. Take a stroll or leisurely drive down the peaceful country roads and experience cherry blossoms, pear blossoms, peach blossoms and many more. For a little added fun, rent some bicycles and experience the fresh spring air on bike!
- Bike & Hike
Speaking of bicycles, you can’t truly experience the South Okanagan without embarking on a hike in the hills or a bike ride on the scenic winding roads that surround our world-class wineries. These hikes will give you a great opportunity to see the plentiful wildflowers that bloom in spring, and many visitors find that the crisp spring air makes for a refreshing hike or bike ride. Watermark Beach Resort has joined up with Heatstroke Cycle & Sport to offer special bicycle tour packages, so you can speed down Anarchist Mountain, go on a bicycle wine tour, or experience the South Okanagan in relaxing style.
- Gone Fishing
Thanks to the warmer temperatures in the South Okanagan, Osoyoos Lake tends to warm up early in the year. This means that it’s a favourite haunt for fisherman year round and you can expect to find plenty of rainbow trout and sockeye salmon!
- Wine Your Way
Whether you’re a seasoned wine lover or completely new, a visit to a South Okanagan winery is an absolute must! In the spring, many wineries have set hours or are available by appointment. Best of all, the off-season means that you can experience the winery in a quieter environment and you will likely have the undivided attention of the staff. Depending on the winery, you may even be able to take a tour with the winery owner or winemaker himself!
