This post brought to you by VISIT FLORIDA. All opinions are 100% mine.
I am a Florida girl, through and through. My family is one of the usual ones with roots in the state – seven generations worth. And I even married a FL boy. This is my home, and I can’t imagine living anywhere else.
While it is home, I am also very aware that people come from all over the world to visit our white sandy beaches, play in our theme parks and enjoy our awesome weather, and I do my best not to take advantage of living here. We visit the theme parks, we take weekend trips to the beach and we explore old Florida. There are so many great treasures to explore in FL, in fact, one of my childhood favorites is on my summer bucket list this year — Weeki Watchi Springs (real live mermaids – Google it!).
Whether you are from Florida, visit regularly or have never been to Florida, this is a sweepstakes you can’t miss entering. VISIT FLORIDA is giving away a different Florida vacation package every week through the end of 2013 through its Florida’s 500 Years of Adventure Sweepstakes. That’s a lot of vacations. Each week has a different prize, but most seem to include a hotel stay, car rental and breakfast. Some also include air travel and others also include activities. Looking over the list of prizes – I want to win! Any of them would be a fun getaway for my family. (Fingers crossed!)
For those who are forgetful (like me), you can even sign up to get a reminder to enter the next week’s contest every Monday if you like.
Look at the next couple of weeks, the vacations being given away through June 30 include:
- Ft. Lauderdale
- Daytona Beach
- Palm Beach
- Key West Escape
- Captiva Island
Any of those vacays would be great, but since Captiva Island is the only place on that list I have never been. I would LOVE to win that one! (Plus that one includes airfare for all you out-of-state folks.)
