#VancouverComeBack Instagram Contest

All across the city, the people of Vancouver are slowly re-emerging just in time for the warm and sunny days of summer holidays. And while we can’t venture too far from home just yet, we do have an incredible opportunity to explore our own backyard the way millions of tourists do every year. To celebrate this occasion, plus all of the hard work we’ve put in to get here, Tourism Vancouver is launching a very special #VancouverComeBack contest. Just by visiting and supporting local businesses, you could win amazing prizes that’ll get you out adventuring in Metro Vancouver even further!

To be entered, all you need to do is share photos of a night out at your favourite restaurant, your staycation at a local hotel, a family outing to one of Vancouver’s many attractions, even a shopping date with friends – whatever it is, post it to Instagram with the hashtag #VancouverComeBack and be sure to tag whichever business you’re at to show them an extra special bit of that hometown love.

Winners will be chosen at random to receive amazing prizes like these:

Bath access for 2 to the Scandinave Spa Whistler
