Sometimes the best kept secrets are just around the corner in your own community.
That’s the premise behind Be A Tourist in Your Own Hometown, which offers deals aimed at getting people in the Capital Region familiar with attractions, activities, restaurants and venues they may have not yet checked out.
This year’s event, in its 44th year, includes 50 offers for residents to utilize said Dave Roberts, executive director of Attractions Victoria. “There are great deals for people to take advantage of,” he said, adding, “it’s a great way to explore the buried treasures in your own backyard.”
For example, West Shore residents can kayak or canoe for free with a stay at the Birds of a Feather Bed and Breakfast on the Esquimalt Lagoon.
Or if you’re looking for something that only requires an afternoon or morning, Fort Rodd Hill and Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Sites is offering free admission on Saturday, Feb. 27, and Sunday, Feb. 28.
You can even travel to the different venues in style or just go for a drive with deals such as LA Limousine offering 50 per cent off the second hour when you book their service for an hour.
For families or a group of friends, Glow Mini Golf in Langford has a four for the price of three admission special as well.
