This press release came my way this afternoon. Sounds interesting, especially since gas in Exeter is now over $4 a gallon at some locations.
CoCo Key Water Resorts is giving away the bank or rather, eight exciting tropical vacation experiences valued at more than $1,000 each in the "CoCo Key Ultimate Staycation Challenge."
With record high gas prices and the headaches of air travel, a family vacation close to home, or "staycation" as it is commonly referred to, never sounded so good. As a fun and exciting way to celebrate the staycation experience, CoCo Key Water Resort is launching a search for the most creative and resourceful ways families have staycationed in the past. Vacationers can tell their stories online at www.CoCoStaycation.com.
Gone are the days of the weeklong vacation. Families are opting to save their precious time and hard earned dollars by taking a one or two night local trip. But just because consumers are staying near home this summer, doesn’t mean that they can’t experience that vacation they always wanted.
"We understand that families are looking for economical ways to vacation," said Elizabeth Beutel, Director of Sales and Marketing at CoCo Key Danvers. "CoCo Key Water Resort is that hot, new, affordable vacation experience located right here in your own backyard."
