Where is Osoyoos?

At the gateway to the Okanagan and Similkameen Valley lies Canada's only desert, and the delightful lakeside town of Osoyoos.  Go to the junction of Highway 97 and Highway 3 at the southern tip of the Okanagan Valley - Osoyoos is 2 kilometres away from the Canada - U.S. border, and shares Osoyoos Lake with Washington State.  The Unity Rider statue at the entrance to Osoyoos symbolizes the essence of this community - Coming Together.  In face, the name Osoyoos derives from an Okanagan First Nations word that describes "the narrows" or the coming together of two lakes.
