We are now onto the third installment of the 10-week BC Travel Tuesday contest I am running with backyardbc.com where we’re 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 2: Howe Sound Inn & Brewing” is Cliff (and he has been contacted by email). This week’s featured property is tucked away on 22 acres of seaside property among arbutus trees and sandy beaches on the Eastern side of Vancouver Island. I had the opportunity to visit Tigh-Na-Mara while on a girls getaway to the Island in 2009. The spa, the bistro, and the sunsets are pretty tough to beat.
