Giveaway #202- Hilton Burlington

20 Jul

This weeks giveaway is close to my heart!!! As all of you know I am a HUGE dog lover and this weeks giveaway is perfect for all of my fellow dog lovers out there! Not only will you get to enjoy the beautiful Hilton Burlington but so will your furry best friend!

“Hilton Burlington invites guests and their furry friends to enjoy its customized dog-friendly “Come, Sit, Stay” hotel stay package. When visitors check-in with their precious pooches, 20 percent of the stay package rate is donated to the Chittenden County Humane Society to help other animals.

As part of this special package, pups staying in the Hilton Burlington will be welcomed with delicious treats from Vermont Dog Eats, a local “farm to bowl” company making its produce with grass-fed beef, organic vegetables and eggs. Then in room, the pet-friendliest package continues with branded Hilton water and food bowls, and a Hilton deluxe pet bed.

Mounted Cat, the hotel’s innovative restaurant and lounge is not only a pet-friendly space, but it serves “Bowser Beer,” a special non-alcoholic beer for dogs, made with malt barley and loaded with glucosamine for the joint health. As part of the pet package, pets can a enjoy a choice between Beefy Brown Ale or Cock-a-Doodle Brew Browser Beers while pet-owners delight in one of their own exclusive Mounted Cat Lagers, Mounted Cat’s very own brew.

Named Chittenden County Humane Society’s 2014 Community Partner of the Year, the downtown, waterfront hotel offers a pet walking and potty area just a short walk from its front door. The concierge will also supply a list of nearby pet-friendly parks, beaches, boutiques, shops and the Burlington Bike Path, where dogs on a leash can accompany their owners on the 7.6-mile walk around the beautiful Lake Champlain.”

Giveaway #196- The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown Union Station

27 Apr

This weeks giveaway is taking you to the great city of Indianapolis! If you are the lucky winner of this fabulous giveaway you will stay at the beautiful Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown Union Station and explore the fascinating Children’s Museum of Indianapolis with your family, as well as exploring this wonderful city!!!

“The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is the largest children’s museum in the world based on size (472,900 square-feet), artifacts (120,000), and attendance (more than 1.25 million).

Don’t miss the rare, mummified dinosaur as you witness how dinosaurs lived 77 million years ago in Dinosphere: Now You’re in Their World®, experience Dale Chihuly’s Fireworks of Glass and examine the impact of children who have shaped history in The Power of Children: Making a Difference®.

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is much more than a “play land’ for youngsters – it is strategically designed to engage adults as well. Real science, real history, and innovative hands-on activities are used interchangeably to encourage intergenerational family learning. Costumed actor interpreters bring stories to life in a variety of exhibits ranging from CSI: Flight Adventures (a partnership with NASA exploring the science of flight) to Take Me There:® China (the exploration of another culture intended to foster awareness of differences and similarities of another culture). Photo opportunities abound with North America’s largest water clock to one of Dale Chihuly’s largest glass-blown sculptures, standing 43-foot-tall. A real paleontologist will show you how he’s preserving real fossils in the Paleo Prep Lab amid some of the rarest specimens ever found in our Dinosphere exhibit. National Geographic Treasures of the Earth explores some of the world’s hidden treasures that have only recently been discovered.

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is a nonprofit institution committed to creating extraordinary learning experiences across the arts, sciences, and humanities that have the power to transform the lives of children and families. For more information, please visit www.childrensmuseum.org, follow us on Twitter @TCMIndy, Facebook.com/childrensmuseum and YouTube.

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the newly renovated Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown Union Station is housed with America’s first “union station.” The hotel is especially popular for its 26 authentic Pullman train car sleeping rooms resting on their original tracks and its “ghost people” dressed in authentic period clothing. The hotel is still an active railroad station and trains pass through on a regular schedule. The muffled rumbling and subtle vibrations of the trains as they roll through the building “enhances the ambiance of staying in the hotel where travelers can experience the authenticity of a living railroad station.”

“The Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown Union Station is located in the heart of downtown’s Wholesale District adjacent to the Indiana Convention Center and in the shadow of Lucas Oil Stadium. With area attractions, Circle Centre Mall, the emerging Mass Ave Arts District, theaters, restaurants and night life nearby there’s much to see and do within a short walk of the hotel.”

This giveaway includes:

Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown Union Station
&
The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis
