In southern B.C., there's a place where experience comes from the ground up.

Osoyoos? Okanagan? Oh, and how do you pronounce that again? If you're not familiar with this pocket of B.C., about a two-hour drive from Kelowna, you might appreciate a bit of a vetted – okay, curated, let's say – wine-tasting, foodie-filled, great outdoors experience, all packed into less than a week.

In the case of Osoyoos, in the Okanagan Valley, I discovered a one-stop shop: the Watermark Beach Resort. It's also built for longer stays – great for snowbirds who may not always want to go south – with light-filled suites that feature apartment-sized square footage, living rooms and kitchens and communal amenities such as a good gym and an even better pool, where you can breathe in the valley air and take in the lakeside views. The resort has smartly partnered with a few of the region's forward-thinkers – when it comes to wine, food and fun in this, Canada's only desert.
