Pluses:  Kamloops is the hub of BC. To go anywhere you have to drive thru Kamloops.
Beautiful Parks and Camping grounds.
Tons of hiking trails.
Good shoping.

Minuses:  Kamloops is a very hot city in the summer, you need central air to live here..... it get's up to 43c window units just don't cut it.
It is a very arid city.
One does not want to buy by a dike for the Thompson River threatens to flood it's banks each Year.
Kamloops does not get much of a winter, it maybe snows for a week or two but the snow melts within days.
There is the odd winter in the last 30 yrs where it has been very cold but I can't remember when.
We have been hit by the pine beetle greatly here.
Real Estate has sky rocketed in the past 5 years.

A good place to...  Live if you can stand the summer Heat.
