Day 1

Start your trip off right with breakfast at The Roxy Café (vegan and Gluten intolerant friendly). They have loads of great homemade options.

Pie is perfection any time of day. Stop by Davison Orchards and pick up a homemade pie from fruit grown in the orchard at the Farmhouse Café.

Next, head just around the corner from Davison Orchards to Planet Bee Honey Farm where you can do a complimentary Honeymoon Mead Tasting.

For dinner, you don’t want to miss the culinary experience at Kawakubo Sushi — ranked one of the best spots for sushi in Vernon. 

Round out your evening sipping on a cocktail in a tropical paradise at the Cabana Bar and Kitchen, a favourite spot for a nightcap.
