To stimulate travel demand this spring and summer, the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau has reprised two popular off-season promotions, the 2-for-1 Summer Savings program and the Vacation Like a VIP package.
This year both programs, which are combinable and take effect this month, have been extended from Sept. 30 to Oct. 12.
“Everyone loves a deal,” said Nicki E. Grossman, president of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. “And Greater Fort Lauderdale is a great deal this summer, for visitors’ wallets, sense of adventure, and general well-being that comes with a summer vacation.”
Visitors can use the 2-for-1 Summer Savings card for shopping, museums, dining, spa treatments, water sports activities, snorkeling dive excursions, catamaran cruises and water taxi transportation.
More specifically, the card can be used at the Sawgrass Mills discount mall, and for airboat rides through the Everglades at Billie Swamp Safari as well as for visits to Butterfly World, the Bonnet House Museum & Gardens and the Museum of Discovery & Science. Some of the restaurants participating in the program include Mai Kai Restaurant & Polynesian Revue, Shula Burger and 15th Street Fisheries
The Vacation Like a VIP program, which is available with two-night minimum hotel stays, includes room upgrades; $100 resort credits; a $25 American Express gift card; complimentary pool/beach cabanas, water activities or kids programs; and free valet resort parking.
Participating properties include Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale, W Fort Lauderdale, Westin Fort Lauderdale, Diplomat Resort & Spa Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa, Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six, Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort & Spa, Lago Mar Resort and Club, Pillars Hotel and Sonesta Fort Lauderdale.
