Spectacular Spring Break Event

Most people generally try to plan a fun trip for their family during spring break, however in today’s economic climate it is becoming harder to do so.  I personally think that sometimes the best fun is found in our own backyards…this meaning Atlanta.  Why not plan a staycation and explore the city you live in?

I did a little research for my readers to save you a little leg work and found a great local event that would be fun for the entire family plus it won’t break your wallet.

In effort to help parents entertain their family without spending too much money, the Atlanta Hawks created two special events that occur during the first week of April which fall along the spring break schedule of many schools.

1. Wednesday , April 4, 2012  (Hawks vs. Charlotte Bobcats)                                                        Chick-fil-A Family Nights game tickets + meals for as low as $79                                            Package includes 4 game tickets and 4 Chick-fil-A combo meals

2. Friday, April 6, 2012 (Hawks vs. Detroit Pistons)                                                                  TACO MAC + 3  game tickets + meals for as low as $99                                                        Package includes 4 game tickets and 4 $10 Taco Mac giftcards

If you want to give your family an extra special treat and stay downtown and take in some other sites such as the World of Coca-Cola or Georgia Aquarium, the Omni hotel which is walking distance to Philips Arena (where Hawks play) as well as the other attractions is offering a discounted room rate on those game nights. Just click on above link to make reservations and use code “SPRING” to receive your savings.

The Atlanta Hawks were so generous they gave me a family pack of 4 game tickets to Wednesday, April 4, 2012 game to give to one of my readers.  If you want a chance to win tickets to this game.  Please leave a comment on this post to be entered into the drawing.  Winner will be chosen on Tuesday, April 3, 2012  at 8:00am and notified via email.

I love the idea of staying close to home, especially with a toddler who I'd like to keep on this nap schedule!

We are in full STAY-cation mode around here and I was seriously considering going to that game. Will definitely go with free tix! It's my b'day month and I feel lucky! I remember when a trip to the old Omni was like a day at an amusement park. More like a trip to the mall these days, but the CNN tour is pretty nice. Stone Mountain park is a good staycation destination as well, and there are a lot of inexpensive public golf courses in Atl as well (Brownsmill, Tup Holmes, Mystery Valley). Check out golfzing.com for deals.
