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…
