Merritt & Area
The City of Merritt is located in the beautiful Nicola Valley, at the intersection of the Coquihalla Highway and Coquihalla Connector. Merritt is a 3 hour drive from Vancouver, 1 hour from Kelowna, and 45 minutes from Kamloops. There are airports in both Kamloops and Kelowna.
Situated at an elevation of 595 metres (1950 feet) above sea level, Merritt tends to experience mild winters with little snowfall and warm, dry, sunny summers.
This area of BC was first settled by ranchers who recognized the potential for a productive cattle industry; the area contains the Douglas Lake Cattle Ranch, one of the largest working cattle ranches in North America.
The Nicola Valley is a fisherman's paradise, offering excellent sport fishing in the nearby lakes, rivers and streams. Many of the 150 area lakes are just a short drive from Merritt. For those who enjoy winter sports, there's great cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ice fishing.
Since 1993 there has been a major country music festival each summer in Merritt. Every July, this amazing four day outdoor event takes place. The beauty of the surrounding Hoodoos, the Coldwater River and the spectacular landscape is proudly home to the Merritt Mountain Music Festival - Mountainfest.
