BC Travel Tuesday: Week 1 Delta Victoriaby
It’s my pleasure to introduce a new series on Miss604.com over the next few weeks, in partnership with backyardbc.com, that will promote and support local tourism.
backyardbc is a new travel website designed specifically for residents of British Columbia. Essentially a “be a tourist in your own backyard” program, participating hotels & resorts offer residents of BC exclusive rates and specials, designed to motivate BCers to travel more within the Province. Each offer has its own unique reservation code, and all bookings are done directly with our hotel and resort partners. Visit backyardbc online, on Twitter, or Facebook and see more of BC!
With the most beautiful province right at our doorsteps, staying local for family getaways and fun with friends is more popular than ever. backyardbc and I have hotel and resort giveaways stacked up and ready to go to one lucky reader every Tuesday for the next 10 weeks. Each BC Travel Tuesday will highlight the property that is sponsoring the prize, starting with…
Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort and Spa
Website, Twitter, Facebook, backyardbc listing
Location: 45 Songhees Road, Victoria, BC
About: Ideally located on Victoria’s breathtaking inner harbour, it’s a short 5 minute walk from downtown.

Prize: 2 nights in a Deluxe Inner Harbour Room overlooking Victoria’s Inner Harbour, including complimentary parking and high speed internet access.
To enter to win, leave a comment on this post and/or post the following on Twitter:

I have many friends who live in Victoria and I haven’t been over to visit them in over 4 years! Shameful, I know. This would be the perfect prize for me!
This would be a beautiful and restful getaway for my husband and I on our first wedding anniversary coming up!
I have heard that the Delta Victoria is stunning and these pictures prove it. I would love to enjoy a weekend getaway there.
A great place to spend a 30th anniversary which is coming up in June for us!
Sign me up Scotty!
In my opinion , if B.C. tourist industry wish BC, Alberta & Washington State residents to spend money at accommodation and restaurants, the tourism industry needs to take a thorough review of the meaning of customer service.
Tourism industry states ” Increased competition from other destinations continues to impact our ability to
influence travel and the strong Canadian dollar also hurts our competitive advantage.”
Unable to afford the discounted rates with the special rate discount of 10 per cent for resident of British Columbia, thus opportunity to win 2 night accommodation with ” complimentary parking ” appears promising
Believe you me, his tweeting Tooth Fairy @toothfairycyber really wishes to win so she can be a tourist and relax at this fantastic resort!
tweeted it sweetly!
I’ve been wanting to go to Victoria for a while and I loves staying at Delta Hotels!
I’d like to enter please!

I went to UVic and have a soft spot for this city have not been back for over a year and would love the oppurtunity!
Pick me, pick me! (Please.)
me and my girlfriend will love this XD
Sounds lovely 🙂
Never been to Victoria and I have lived in Vancouver my entire life… This would be a great opportunity!
Wow looks beautiful!
The Ocean Pointe is ideally located – midway between Spinnakers and downtown Victoria – awesome for a spring time meander!
We should all be tourists in our beautiful province!
that is sooooooooooo awesome! we love to win this amazing prize!:)
BackyardBC is a great idea as our province has so much to offer in the way of nature, beauty, culture and its friendly residents. Traveling close to home can save the environmental cost of air travel. I’m looking forward to checking out the website and reviewing the offers of our tourism industry.
