It’s not often that we get out to explore popular sites around Vancouver that are enjoyed by so many visitors each year. It wasn’t until the past year or so that I walked around Minter Gardens, went up to the Vancouver Lookout, or stopped by Maplewood Farm. It’s for this reason that Tourism Vancouver has launched the “Be a Tourist in Your Own Town” campaign May 3rd to May 29th, 2011.
Tourism Vancouver explains: “Each day, during the 27 days of the promotion, a different area attraction will be revealed as the â€œattraction of the dayâ€, offering B.C. residents a limited number of free admission tickets to their location. Tickets are only valid for one day, but on that day the lucky locals who snag tickets can expect a great day out, and will leave inspired to share their experience with visiting friends and relatives.”
A few of my favourite spots that will be a part of the promotion include: Hell’s Gate, Gulf of Georgia Cannery in Steveston, Britannia Mine Museum, the Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art, the Museum of Anthropology, the Squamish Lilâ€™wat Cultural Centre and many more, listed online.
