There’s only one thing on the mind of everyone in BC right now and that’s hockey. However, after the dust settles tonight (and heart rates return to normal) wouldn’t it be nice to get away? I’m a little late for our BC Travel Tuesday feature but we still have a few properties to go in the series (which expanded from 10 weeks to 12).
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 9: Fairmont Empress Victoria is Dennis L. (and he has been notified by email). This week’s property is also located in Victoria’s James Bay, just a short walk from the Inner Harbour, the Legislature and the city’s top attractions.
