Comments 242 by Rebecca Bollwitt

BC Travel Tuesday has returned this summer as I partner up once again with Backyard BC to highlight properties and destinations around the province. We have six weeks of contests which means six difference getaway packages for BC hotels are up for grabs.

Featuring a variety of hotels and resorts located throughout the province, Backyard BC provides residents of British Columbia with free access to exclusive discounts on accommodation. If you live and travel in BC, we’ll make sure you pay less than the lowest rates available to anyone else. Travel local. Save big. Visit Backyard BC online, on Twitter, or Facebook and see more of BC!

The winner of the first giveaway of the 2012 BC Travel Tuesday campaign is Mark! If you haven’t already, you can still enter to win the grand prize which includes stays at every property we’re showcasing over the full six week campaign.

Today the second getaway of the series is for one of the brightest destinations in the province, getting an average of 2,047 hours of sunshine a year:
