Exploring Penticton for the first time

I am James from Calgary. Last summer, my family and I booked a plane ticket to Penticton for a short vacation. We were rather new to the place so we wanted to explore it. We booked a ticket to Penticton through WestJet Encore. During the trip, my son was uncomfortable on board but the staff made him relaxed and comfortable. Overall, my family had a great time on board. When we have arrived at Penticton, we explored different attractions and bistros around the city. We tried the best burgers, and the best wines. We even explored different museums and galleries. I particularly liked S.S. Sicamous Museum and Heritage Park. I purchased an admission ticket to enter the museum. The museum is a good place for ship history junkies. My kids enjoyed exploring the boat. They say that it’s a good place for weddings which I had to agree on. Definitely a great visit to the place. When we are going to book a ticket back to Penticton, we’ll surely visit the place again.
