In 1886, Vancouver was considered a rather remote outpost with just a few hundred people. Now the Canadian city in British Columbia has grown to more than half a million And it's celebrating its 125th year with a gift card for visitors who stay at selected hotels for two nights.
The deal: About 30 hotels offer Tourism Vancouver's $125 gift card (worth about $131 U.S.) with a required two-night stay. Here's how it works: Take the card to Tourism Vancouver's visitor center at 200 Burrard St. to cash it in. You can buy theater tickets, tickets to sporting events such as a Whitecaps soccer game, transit passes and more. Only one card is awarded per booking.
