If you’re travelling between Kelowna and Vernon with time on your hands, consider taking Carrs Landing, which turns into Commonage Rd, in preference to Hwy-97. It’s a quiet detour that offers something of the beauty for which the area is frequently praised and is part of the Scenic Sip (w scenicsip.ca) wine route. As the road weaves through woods and small bays, the views through to the lake are enchanting. To get to Carrs Landing Road from downtown Kelowna take Spall Rd from Hwy-97, which becomes Glenmore Drive and then winds along the lake as the two-lane Okanagan Centre Rd West; then take Carrs Landing which becomes Mission Road and Commonage Road.
