Heading into Week 6 of the BC Travel Tuesday series, we’re about half-way through the giveaways and getaways that have been lined up by backyardbc.com. In case you haven’t been following along already, we’re highlighting travel and hotel stays for locals.
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!
As I am currently traveling (and have scheduled this post for publishing) the winner of BC Travel Tuesday: Week 5 Watermark Beach Resort, Osoyoos will be announced later tonight. However, I will still reveal this week’s property in Kelowna and as a bonus, Kamloops too. Update The winner of Week 5 is Michael Florizone (as announced on that post).

About: Accent Inns is a family-owned hotel chain that offers convenient and comfortable accommodation around BC. Kelowna is the hub of the Okanagan with outdoor recreation, wineries, and great golfing. Scenic Kamloops has traditionally been a pit-stop location for my family when traveling up the Coquihalla or Trans Canada highway although many are discovering it’s a great destination on its own with an emerging culinary and craft beer scene. Make either city a destination or a spot on your road trip map.
Prize: 2 nights at Accent Inns in Kelowna and 2 nights at Accent Inns in Kamloops*
To enter to win, leave a comment on this post and/or post the following on Twitter:
