The Lake Country Heritage and Cultural Society has launched a free mobile app and a print guidebook of a Heritage Driving Tour of Lake Country.
The Heritage Driving Tour is a circle tour with thirteen heritage stops and additional optional stops at local wineries and points of interest. The tour begins at the District of Lake Country Municipal Building, 10150 Bottom Wood Lake Road but can also start at any of the stops. The tour is a total distance of 48 km and will take approximately one hour without stops and up to four hours with stops.
Corrinne Cross, Manager of the Lake Country Chamber of Commerce, is very pleased with the tour. “This will enhance tourism throughout Lake Country and encourage visitors from nearby areas to come to Lake Country for a day trip. It’s a great way to present Lake Country and encourage partnerships between history and business.”
The mobile app of the Heritage Driving Tour is available online at:
https://www.historypin.org/. From the History Pin home page choose Profiles then search Lake Country Museum. The Heritage Driving Tour is located under Tours.
The print guides are available online and at the Lake Country Museum, the Lake Country Chamber of Commerce, and Intrigue Wines and sell for $7/each.
Funding of the Heritage Driving Tour was generously provided by The Central Okanagan Foundation.
