Travel provides a steady stream of exotic sights, new experiences, and fresh audiences for one’s ventriloquist act. Prepare to pack up wooden pals with today’s Groupon to the AAA Great Vacations Expo at Franklin County Veterans Memorial from January 20–22. Children younger than 16 get in free. Choose between the following options:
- For $8, you get two single-day passes (up to an $18 value).
- For $15, you get four single-day passes (up to a $36 value).
At the three-day AAA Great Vacations Expo, holiday hopefuls browse custom travel packages, consult with destination experts, and unearth easy and affordable family furloughs. Cruise lines and island resorts promise to tickle toes on sandy beaches, and mountain villas and ski lifts escort snow bunnies to powdery, sugar-free slopes and picturesque summits. Without compromising its corn-bred cred, the Midwest also shines in the sojourn spotlight, as several drivable destinations spill their secrets.
Patient kids brighten at the prospect of a Disney vacation, and antsy tykes are instantly gratified by entering prize drawings, exchanging play-doh recipes with a zebra, and visiting with real-life cartoon pals including SpongeBob and Snoopy. On Sunday, Travel Channel fans can meet Bert Kreischer, star of travel show Bert the Conqueror. Visitors can blueprint their weekend by browsing the schedule of special attractions and activities and dozens of exhibitors with expert knowledge gleaned from years in the business and dozens of bribes paid to state birds.
Though the AAA Great Vacations Expo sometimes features a discounted price online, 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.
