The BC Travel Tuesday series has returned this summer as I partner up once again with Backyard BC to highlight properties and destinations around the province. We’re now half way through our six week campaign with six different getaway packages for BC hotels.
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 third giveaway of the 2012 BC Travel Tuesday campaign is @LMDallaVecchia! 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 weeks.

The fourth giveaway of the series is perfect for a staycation. Get away to your own downtown core for a night following a romantic dinner, be a tourist in your hometown, or visit the big city.
