If you stay in an Osoyoos hotel during your Okanagan Valley vacation, you'll find that there are plenty of natural features, cultural museums and waterfront activities to keep you entertained. One highlight attraction at this locale is the Osoyoos Desert Model Railroad, a mini fantasy world that provides hours of enjoyment for railfans, model collectors and anyone looking for a unique experience.
This attraction spans more than 370 square metres filled with 1,800 European-style houses and 18,000 miniature hand-painted residents living on a tiny but meticulously detailed landscape. It's the largest Marklin Trains display in the world with 40 computer-controlled trains running at any given time. There's even a car system that runs on some roads, making the Osoyoos Desert Model Railroad the only train display with this feature.
This exciting attraction is located at the Buena Vista Industrial Park on 115th Street, which is just a 10-minute drive from the Walnut Beach Resort. At this deluxe hotel, you can enjoy spectacular views of the lake and all the luxuries of a beach resort, such as carefully-crafted designer suites and world-class amenities and service.
