Be a Tourist in your Own Town – May 3-29, 2011

Be a Tourist in your Own Town

This May, Tourism Vancouver and partner attractions are teaming up to celebrate Vancouver 125 with Be A Tourist In Your Own Town. From May 3rd to 29th, British Columbia residents are invited to be tourists in their own city by taking advantage of over 30,000 free tickets to participating attractions!

Each day, during the 27 days of the promotion, a different area attraction will be revealed as the “attraction of the day”, offering B.C. residents a limited number of free admission tickets to their location. Tickets are only valid for one day, but on that day the lucky locals who snag tickets can expect a great day out, and will leave inspired to share their experience with visiting friends and relatives.

So how do you get in on the fun? Follow Tourism Vancouver on Facebook or Twitter, check in with your favorite radio station, or visit first thing each morning to find out the attraction of the day.

Beginning in May, locals will simply need to register at to download a coupon for two free admission tickets, valid for the following day. But you have to be quick: there is a limited quantity of complimentary tickets available for each attraction, and tickets will go quickly!
