There are quite a few things to do in and around Enderby while you are visiting the area.
On the outskirts of Enderby, heading south, is the Starlight Drive-in. It is the only drive-in movie theater in the Okanagan. Starlight Drive-in opens in May and offers new movies usually with double features. They have a full concession and are family friendly.
If museums are more your style, there are at least two you can check out. The Enderby & District Museum is open year-round and located in the City Hall complex. It features a look at the area’s colourful past through changing and permanent displays.
About a 10-minute drive out of town, along Deep Creek Road you will find the Deep Creek Tool Museum. The extensive collection of tools, engines, household items and equipment date back to the early 1900’s. Herb, the owner, loves taking people on tours and answering all their questions.
If you like hiking, or taking nature walks, why not head over to the Enderby Cliffs? Follow the signs on Mabel Lake Road just outside Enderby to Enderby Cliffs Provincial Park. The cliffs can offer quite a workout along their almost 12 ½ km distance so be prepared for a good hike. The trail is good for hiking, nature trips, and bird watching and is best from April until October.
When you are done golfing, you can take advantage of the full-service restaurant, which is open to the public, found in the clubhouse. They offer a large menu with many of your favorites at good prices. You can even sit on their large patio overlooking the golf course.
If you are planning a trip to BC’s southern interior, why not make a stop in Enderby. You might be surprised what you will find.
Of course, one of the biggest attractions for locals and tourists alike is tubing down the Shuswap River. There are many access points along the entire length of the river, from the mouth of the river near Mabel Lake RV Park & Marina, all the way down and through town.
Or, if you prefer a little more action, head up Mabel Lake Road and take a Whitewater rafting trip through the Shookumchuck Rapids with a trained guide.
If golf is more your style, then you will want to check out the Mabel Lake Golf Course. Designed and built by renowned course architect Les Furber, this par 36, regulation size 9-hole golf course boasts 4 sets of tees with fairways winding through mature forests, natural transition areas, rock walls, ponds and paved cart trails surrounded by a picturesque mountain range.
