Every Wednesday our friends at The Georgia Straight give us something new to share with you here on the blog: a preview of what you’ll see on the front of – and inside – their paper the next day. As you likely already know, they’re the source for lifestyle and entertainment stories in Vancouver. Along with their robust online presence they release a printed publication which is distributed all over Vancouver each Thursday.
This issue is the 2,418th and the theme is ‘Get out of town’: Vacation destinations within driving distance of the Lower Mainland. Articles on B.C. getaways, cycling, fishing, cowboy country, and more. HERE is a portal to some of the stories and below are some links to stories you can check out before you grab the physical paper:
