Okanagan Valley A Winner in USA TODAY’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards
The Okanagan Valley has been named one of ten winners in the USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards for Best Destination – Fall Foliage.
An expert panel announced the nominees at the end of July where it was then up to the public to vote for their favourites to determine the winners.
The Okanagan Valley is in great company placing 6th after Door County, Wisconsin; White Mountains, New Hampshire; Finger Lakes, New York; Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania; and the Upper Peninsula, Michigan.
With the 10Best.com website averaging 5 million visitors a month, this level of exposure for the Okanagan Valley in fall is extremely exciting and we would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote.
