Young visitors to one of Penticton‘s beaches chat on their cellphones while soaking up the sun. Penticton was listed among the top 10 travel destinations for 2012 in an article that appeared on the Huffington Post website on Wednesday.


Penticton‘s mayor had one word to describe the city being named a top-10 world travel destination for 2012.
"Wow!" said Dan Ashton of an article that appeared on the Huffington Post website Wednesday. "I‘m just ecstatic Penticton is able to get this kind of recognition."
Penticton secured the No. 4 spot on a top-10 list of places in the world to visit. The list was compiled by UpTake.com, which came up with the rankings by analyzing travel buzz on Facebook from more than 200 million comments, status updates, photo descriptions and check-ins.

Too cool, and I live here! Certainly an awesome area to lake kayak ;-)
