We are in Vernon, BC, on Supporting Local Tourism at the Kalavada Surf Shop by Kal beach this week. Thanks to Glohaven and their Glo Box, I had the opportunity to test out one of their paddle boards on Okanagan lake! In every Globox, there is a family coupon for 4-6 people on a paddleboard for up to two hours. Kalavada Surf Shop supplies a paddle, measured to your height, the inflatable paddle board that is lightweight and easy to carry (it has handles), as well as a life jacket to keep you safe!
Don’t Panic because Merritt has Bannock. Kekuli Cafe was the best way I can imagine to start off my Merritt 2020 adventure. All of the dishes at Kekuli Cafe are served with bannock. An authentic Indigenous experience there bannock is a must if you are visiting or even if you are just driving by Merritt (but really why would you ever just drive by). Located in the downtown of Merritt it is a must-stop!
Supporting Local Tourism has teamed up with GloHaven and globox! The fantastic people at Glohaven community hub have been kind enough to gift me a family fun box filled with 225$ worth of family-friendly adventures and merchandise. Over the next couple of weeks and Videos, I will be featuring something in the box! Keep an eye out for an episode with the Globox logo on the front! During this weekes episode, I did my second adventure with Glohaven’s Globox and went to the Historic O’keefe ranch. Visting O’keefe3 Ranch is like going back in time. The Ranch has actors on-site that play their parts very convincingly. Most of the buildings are original to the Ranch, you can tour the structures on your own, and they offer guided tours for select buildings. I even ended up singing with a cowboy today, and yes, I included that in the video! Next week Supporting Local Tourism episode will look different/ Next week; thanks to Tourism Nicola Valley, Eh Canada Travel, and Experience Nicola Valley. I will be in Merritt, British Columbia doing a three-day tour of the Town. So I look forward to that!!\
