For those of you who paid attention to this spring’s “BC Travel Tuesday” series, you may have noticed that I said we have 12 weeks of local travel giveaways… then we stopped at 10. The good news is that your math was right, we were missing two weeks and we’re ready to make up for our delay.
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!
Just to recap, our previous giveaway destinations included: Oswego Hotel Victoria, Fairmont Empress Victoria, Hotel Grand Pacific Victoria, Painter’s Lodge Campbell River, Accent Inns Okanagan, Watermark Beach Resort Osoyoos, Inn at Laurel Point, Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort, Howe Sound Inn & Brewing and the Delta Ocean Pointe in Victoria. In total, we had over 4,200 entries and the prize packages were worth over $6,000. The final two destinations are just as exciting as the rest.
