If home is where the heart is, then your brain is plugged into that smoking power strip in the office, and your suntan is sipping coladas hundreds of miles to the south. Leave behind your least important organs in pursuit of browning your biggest one with today’s deal: for $8, you get admission for two to the Great Vacations Expo, brought to you by AAA at the Franklin County Veterans Memorial on January 21–23 (up to an $18 value). Children under 16 are admitted free.
Everything you need to explore Columbus, Colorado, or any other country comes to you at this three-day vacay pep rally. Exhibitors include cruise lines, Disney destinations, regional tourism organizations, and resorts. Expo revelers will have access to special savings such as cruise upgrades, special lodging rates, and ideas for how to save kimono spending money with bathrobe budget cutbacks. January 22 is kids’ day, which offers Lilliputian travelers a chance to participate in hands-on activities such as meeting Nickelodeon's Kai-Lan. The Travel Channel’s Samantha Brown will make an appearance on January 23 to share her vacation picks. Visit the AAA Explore Store, which sells the barbed wire clippers you’ll need to escape on your getaway. See the website for more details.
Though AAA members receive discounted admission, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
AAA Great Vacations Travel EXPO
Each January, travel-industry professionals and vacationers descend upon downtown Columbus for the AAA Great Vacations Travel EXPO to mingle, participate in interactive activities, and exchange travel information. Visitors have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with travel experts and learn how to book transportation by air or sea, how to find hotel accommodations within their budget, and how to request time off from work (wink at the boss while asking). Select exhibitors also offer exclusive discounts on vacation packages, and tourism savants will take the stage to speak about their own vacation tips and tricks.
