Last Tuesday I launched a new 10-week series with backyardbc.com where we’ll be celebrating the best in local travel while offering up weekly giveaways for BC residents.
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!
The winner of “Week 1: Delta Ocean Pointe in Victoria” is Tamara (she has been contacted by email). This week’s featured property is just 45-minutes away from Vancouver along the scenic Sea to Sky Highway. It’s a beautiful local getaway in a tranquil community and this prize would definitely be ideal for beer-lovers. John and I stayed in the quaint, comfortable Inn above the brewery last summer.
Howe Sound Inn & Brewing
