Florida Weekend Getaway Deals
If you want a nice Florida getaway this summer at a super discount, I discovered a great site at visitflorida.com where you can bid on hotel packages and get over 50% off the regular rate. I just spotted a winning bid for 3 days/2 nights in a one-bedroom condo at the Grand Panama Beach Resort for only $185! The retail value is listed at $668. Go to http://www.visitflorida.com/ and click on Florida Vacation Auction. You can also bid on tickets to many attractions such as zoos, botanical gardens, kayaking and museums.
Some people wonder “What is the meaning of life?” I, on the other hand, wonder where my next trip will take me. Welcome to my site, Getaway Girl Travels. I am a travel writer based in Tampa, Florida, but you won't see any guides to theme parks here. I do adventure travel "light": skiing, biking, hiking, rafting, kayaking and exploring the great outdoors.
My travels have taken me from cruising the Yangtze River in China to skiing and biking in Switzerland and kayaking in the Everglades. I love living here in the Sunshine State, so exploring Florida is always a great getaway!
