Editor’s Note: This giveaway is from 2014.
This is final prize in The 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway — and it’s a big one!
The holiday season is in full swing and, if you’re like me, you already kind of need a break..and maybe a nap. If you win today’s Grand Prize Getaway, you can take it one step further and treat yourself and your family and friends to a mini-vacation from Canad Inns!
Today’s prize is valued at $300 and it’s brought to you by the folks at the Greater Grand Forks Convention and Visitors Bureau. Yay, mini-break!
The funds are in American dollars and it’s valid at any Canad Inns property, but I think you’ll love the Canad Inns Destination Center in Grand Forks. I visited a few times last year with my family and the kids had a blast and all of us old people got to kick back and relax a little — the best of both worlds.
If you win the getaway (and remember, you can enter to win multiple times a day until 11:59 p.m. tomorrow) here are some things you’ll definitely want to check out. And if you live in or around Grand Forks, don’t overlook Canad Inns as a holiday gift option. Giving an experience can be a lot of fun!
Great Gift Ideas:
I never quite grew out of my love for Skee-ball and air hockey, so I’m living proof that arcades can be fun for all ages. And don’t even get me started on my husband’s obsession with those claw games. (Don’t ever tell him you want a stuffed animal, because it will then become his mission to get one for you and he will never forget it.)
If you win the getaway, you should definitely carve out some arcade time, just for kicks. And I love the idea of giving a trip to the arcade as a different kind of stocking stuffer.
Splasher’s of the South Seas Waterpark:
There’s nothing better than going to the waterpark when it’s cold outside. On any other day you’d be shoveling the walk in subzero temperatures and braving the ice to get groceries, but now you can lounge around in your bathing suit and read a magazine poolside. It’s hard not to feel like all is right with the world when you’re drifting down a lazy river while the wind howls outside.
If you’re a daredevil, there are some fun, fast slides as well. And my toddler was obsessed with the kiddie play area. I don’t think he stopped grinning the entire time.
A Couple Of Cold Ones:
After spending the day swimming (or sleeping — hey, I don’t judge), it’s fun to kick back with some friends, a few cold drinks and a pizza or some classic bar food. There are several food options located inside the Canad Inns location in Grand Forks, so you won’t have to brave the weather unless you want to.
