We visited Kamloops Wine Country and reported our adventures on Vitamin Daily and the story got picked up by the Huffington Post.
Once home to fur traders, gold miners and infamous train robber Billy Miner, Kamloops, B.C., now boasts lush farms, a stunning riverfront and the recently created Kamloops Wine Trail. Not one to miss out on a day of wine tasting (not to mention exploring, shopping and spa-ing), we packed our bags and drove straight there.
Kamloops Wine Country
stay: The Plaza Hotel, Kamloops’ oldest tall building, is right in the thick of downtown, with spacious rooms and beds we were hard-pressed to leave in the morning (had it not been for the promise of wine). Check out the hotel’s Fireside Steakhouse & Bar for delicious, locally sourced beef. The Plaza Hotel, 405 Victoria St., Kamloops, 250-377-8075, www.theplazahotel.ca
explore: Downtown Kamloops exudes a cool “antique” feel, meaning every visit should include a stop at the Kamloops Museum & Archives, where you can currently catch a fascinating exhibit by Mary Spencer, one of Canada’s first female photographers. Kamloops Museum & Archives, 207 Seymour St., Kamloops, 250-828-3576, www.kamloops.ca/museum
