I am pleased to announce that the BC Travel Tuesday series, that was originally set to be 10 weeks long, has been extended to 12 weeks thanks to the support of my readers and the partner properties listed on backyardbc.com. We’re now onto our fifth week and so far we’ve given away $2,188 worth of accommodations around BC.
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 “BC Travel Tuesday: Week 4 Inn at Laurel Point” is Kristine (and she has been contacted by email). This week’s featured property is located in the sunny South Okanagan, at the tip of BC’s own wine country.
