Built around the intersections of Highways 5 and 97, the Yellowhead and Trans-Canada highways, respectively, and at the confluence of the two branches of the Thompson River, which merge to form the Kamloops Lake, Kamloops is an excellent place to stay during a British Columbia vacation. There are myriad Kamloops hotels, resorts, cottages, and cabins, as well as plenty of camping opportunities.
The majority of Kamloops hotels are located along the Trans-Canada Highway, as well as in the city's downtown district along Victoria and Columbia Streets. Nearby, you can go window shopping along tree-lined sidewalks, head to a casino or martini bar, or even go disco bowling.
