A bit late on the BC Travel Tuesday entry today but it’s another great getaway, to a familiar location. In case you’re just tuning into the series, we’re now 8 weeks into the 12 week series that is showcasing some of BC’s best accommodations and destinations.
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 7 Painter’s Lodge Campbell River is Renfrew (and they have been notified by email). This week’s property is also located on Vancouver Island as we head back to Victoria. John and I stayed there during our last trip over for WordCamp and the views couldn’t be beat.
