If you have relatives coming for the holidays and you have no room for them to stay at your place, refer your family and friends to http://www.visitcentralflorida.org/ and click on the "Home for the Holidays" feature on the left side. This is where you will find special offers for Nov. 15-Dec. 31, 2007.
The special offers can be used by the entire family, not just those staying at the accommodation.
When your guests book Polk County lodging, tell them to be sure to mention the Home for the Holidays offer. This isn't just for hotels, folks. There are special rates at vacation rental homes, bed and breakfasts and more.
In looking at the site, some of the choices that caught my eye included:
- Lake Morton Bed & Breakfast, where guests can get a 10 percent discount.
- Hyatt Place- it's newly renovated! They're offering a $99 rate, which includes continental breakfast and free wi-fi.
- Terrace Hotel- always a Lakeland favorite. $119 for deluxe rooms.
- Cherry Pocket Fish Camp - you can stay in a fully furnished cabin for two nights and get the third night free. I've always heard this is an awesome place to eat, too.
Like I stated earlier, these are just the places that caught my eye. I encourage you to check the Web site yourself, because there are numerous places on the list.
Upon arrival, guests will receive a value card with more than 40 offers for attractions, restaurants and shops. Guests also can enjoy savings at Polk County’s top attractions and holiday activities -- such as Historic Bok Sanctuary, Fantasy of Flight, the Florida Air Museum and musical productions, as well as ice-skating at the Lakeland Center.
