Have you ever wondered how a city becomes an iconic destination? Think Paris, Rome, London to New York. Well, it takes years and in some cases, centuries, as in the European cities so readily recognized the world over.
If you are keen to escape the last of a Canadian winter, whether you live in the east, to anywhere across the prairies, to here on the 'wet coast' in British Columbia, this week's show is for you!

It's Saturday, March 2nd, 2013...can spring be far off? After a record-breaking soggy winter here in the Pacific Northwest, British Columbians are ready for the fresh smell of springtime, accented by gorgeous sun-filled days.
This week's radio show has our friends at Fairmont Hotels and Resorts sharing fabulous experiences which might find you exploring the wine region of Seattle, to savouring sumptuous afternoon tea fit for pint-sized kings and queens in Victoria - and an indulgent spa treatment for mom and dad, to shussing down the slopes of Whistler Blackcomb right out the front door of your mountainside chateau in Whistler!
Should spring break find you heading to warmer climes, or you're looking for that 'once in a lifetime' Mother's or Father's Day gift, you'll be charmed with Fairmont Afternoon Tea in YVR's post-security lounge and the details of a flight simulator gift package at the airport!
In downtown Vancouver one might escape the everyday with a night or two in the heart of the city...indulging in palate-pleasing wine and dine experiences, to visiting art galleries, museums and world-class shopping.

Special thanks to my guests from the Fairmont Hotels & Resorts of the Pacific Northwest and Whistler. And for their generous giveaway of a two night stay for two at the hotel of your choice! More details on the contest are here.
I encourage you to visit each of these hotels' web sites for full details and information on booking an unforgettable getaway with Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. The photos are engaging and will no doubt inspire you to try something that you hadn't considered!
Enjoy and safe travels; Cheryl
