Blogging has opened a whole new world of opportunities and friends to me and my family. I’ve been so blessed to take my family on some amazing adventures and I’m so excited to share the biggest one yet with YOU!
Recently I was asked to be a part of a Pittsburgh Bloggers Weekend in Columbus, Ohio as part of the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau’s “Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway” campaign. I cannot wait to check out all the fun and exciting things to do in Columbus with my family. Even better is that I’ll get to do it with some other awesome local bloggers! My Pittsburgh blogging momma friends Nadine (The Pittsburgh Mommy Blog), Nicole (Champagne to Crayons) , Kelly (Pgh Momtourage) and Becky (Lil’ Burgers) will be there with their families as well. And, it gets EVEN better! The Ohio Convention and Visitor’s Bureau has given me a package so YOU and your family could WIN a weekend getaway to Columbus too! Exciting stuff, right?! Check out all that’s included in this amazing giveaway:
A two night stay at participating Drury Inn & Suites (the preferred hotel of the Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway) offers special amenities, including: free, hot breakfast and evening snacks; indoor pool; and complimentary wireless Internet. Other Hotels are available, but prices may vary by location.
Four passes to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, ranked the No. 1 zoo in America, unveils its 143-acre Heart of Africa exhibit May 22. Visitors can stand face-to-face with giraffes and feed them a snack; get up-close with lions as they board a grounded airplane; and take a camel ride in the Zoo’s newest and largest region. This stunning new exhibit is home to 150 animals and adds even more reason for travelers to visit the place famed zoo director Jungle Jack Hanna calls home.
Four passes to Zoombezi Bay, the world's only waterpark inside of a major zoo, opens Baboon Lagoon this season. Ideal for younger kids, this active play land boasts eight water slides, fountains and a 1,000-gallon bucket dump. Beyond Baboon Lagoon, guests can splash and scream through 17 twisting waterslides, extreme raft rides, headfirst racers and the hair-raising 209-foot Cyclone, the world's largest reducing-radius slide. Zoombezi also offers the more laid-back, adults-only Crocktail Creek, a lazy river where moms and dads can relax.
AND four passes to COSI, the nation's top science center, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year by hosting The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes. Brand new this year and running only through September, guests get their own book full of clues and can join master detective Sherlock Holmes to participate in experiments and stay hot on a trail to crack a new mystery. In addition, COSI visitors can ride a high-wire unicycle, use sonar technology and get wild with loads of other hands-on activities that make science fun.
