Welcome to Week 7 of the BC Travel Tuesday series. It’s been really fun to highlight regions of the province while putting smiles on the faces of our contest winners so far – and we’re not done yet. We still have a handful of great giveaways over the remaining weeks.
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 6 Accent Inns Okanagan is Sarah C (and she has been notified by email). This week’s property is located in Campbell River, on the eastern side of Vancouver Island. I’ve been to Campbell River only twice before but the Salmon Capital of the World has plenty to offer.
