Giveaway: The Great Dayton Spring Staycation 2012 {1 Winner}

 

I am so excited for The Great Dayton Spring Staycation Giveaway. With gas prices on the rise, I have partnered with several local Dayton businesses to help you have fun with your kids over Spring Break without breaking the bank.

You know Oprah has her favorite things giveaways around the holidays, however, I am going to be giving away tickets and gift cards to some of my favorite places in Dayton.

One lucky Savings Lifestyle Dayton Reader will win the following:

  • 4 General Admission Tickets to Boonshoft Museum of Discovery
  • 5 General Admission Tickets to Danbury Dollar Saver
  • 2 Tickets for Dayton Art Institute Special Exhibition to Changing Landscapes
  • 2 Chick-fil-A Value Meals
  • 2 Chick-fil-A Kids Meals
  • $25 Frisch's Gift Card
  • 6 Frost Cupcake Bar Cupcakes

Are you excited yet?  My family loves to frequent all these places and I am planning on a few fun days with the kids.  I cannot wait to take them to the special exhibits at the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery and the Experience Center at the Dayton Art Institute.  We will probably catch a movie at the Danbury too! Not to mention, we will grab lunch at Chick-fil-A, use our Frisch's Free Kids Meals before they expire and grab a Frost Cupcake for dessert.

The only required method to enter the giveaway is with a comment, so…

Leave us a comment and tell us what you think is a must-do for your Dayton Staycation.

To increase your chances of winning, there are optional entries available for you, which are:

    An evening walk down Riverscape is a MUST. Enjoying the lights and cool breeze while soaking up the area.

    I’d love to win this with Spring Break just a few weeks away. Like so many others, we can’t afford to go anywhere special but this deal fits in to our budget perfectly! I had already ‘liked’ most of these sites & I already follow you on Twitter – does it still count as additional entries? :) *fingers crossed*

    No Dayton Staycation for families with children is complete without visits to Five Rivers Metroparks, Carillon Park, and the Air Force Museum as well as the Dayton Art Institute and Boonshoft Museum of Discovery. Dayton has a lot to offer!

    This would be perfect. Since we both have to work we do not get much family time, this is something we could take off and do as a family or something we could do with Grandma.

    Thanks for the chance to win.

    i follow you on fb. I think a must do on a staycation is to walk the area and not drive. that way you can stop at all of the cool and different stores you pass easily instead of having to find somewhere to park. and it saves on gas!
