While there won’t be fireworks or large gatherings this New Year’s Eve, you can still celebrate with those in your household as we stay local to bid adieu to 2020 and welcome in 2021!
Heading out for dinner on NYE with those in your household is still an option this year in BC and is a great way to support local restaurants.
Hotel Dining + Turn NYE into a Staycation
Lakeside Dining at Eldorado Resort, OAK + CRU at Delta Hotels by Marriott Grand Okanagan Resort, and Gulfstream Lounge & Grill at the Four Points by Sheraton Kelowna Airport will be offering special dine-in menus for New Year's Eve (stay tuned to the websites for full details and to reserve your table). Stay the night and turn your New Year's dinner into a staycation. Once you've dined, you can take the elevator to your room and in the morning, enjoy a delicious breakfast or brunch to kick off 2021.
