This is the final installment of the BC Travel Tuesday series. Over the last few months I’ve worked with Brian from backyardbc to bring my readers options for local getaways and have been able to award prizes to a dozen winners from Vancouver Island and Squamish to the Okanagan.
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!
Last week’s winner of the April Point Resort trip to Quadra Island is Ryan (and he has been notified by email). This week, we take you back to Victoria for a unique experience — particularly if you love local brews.

This week’s winner will be announced next Tuesday.
