Vernon, BC, Canada is a kind of laid back type of town... 2 lakes (1 green (one of two green lakes in the world like that). A ski hill (very close to downtown (Silver Star)), lots of back roads for 4x4ing and a few smaller lakes for fishing trout (etc) and lots of mountains for hiking and hunting! This seems to be a sports recreation and Artist town. The people are very nice and friendly here. Good place to move if you are hunting for a new house with lots of things to do.
