Peachland is about 20 minutes from Kelowna, the economic heart of the Okanagan region. We would never call Peachland a suburb, but our point is that quaint Peachland is not remote and not isolated. Its neighbour, Kelowna, does not offer Peachland's unique lifestyle, but it offers big city services.
Kelowna is also growing. Pop: 2016: 200,000 2020: 212,000. See Make It Kelowna video here...
Kelowna airport (YLW) is also growing rapidly. “The reason for the increase is in large part due to the launch of new routes and airlines, along with increased capacity on current popular destinations,” said Airport Director Sam Samaddar. “The Okanagan’s is a four-season destination with world-class skiing, wineries and agri-tourism drawing travellers to the region.” YLW's rapid growth is expected to continue, as highlighted in its visionary Master Plan 2045.
