Looking for a Wonderful Valentine’s Gift?

Looking for a Wonderful Valentine's Gift?Locals Night Out, on Amelia Island, Florida, makes for a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift for your sweetheart!

This is the second year SearchAmelia and Amelia Hotel at the Beach have put together an affordable Staycation for locals to spend the night out, in their own hometown.

A few years ago, my husband and I were doing a function in the historic district and we decided to get a room downtown rather than drive home. We were on the elevator the following morning on our way back upstairs after breakfast and another guest of the hotel asked where we were from. “Here!” We replied, and the idea was born!

It is a great way to get away from the day to day routine and treat yourself to a little something special, and still be close enough to home to go walk the dog or feed the cat. Forgot to pack something? No problem… run pick it up from home.

$59.00 is a reasonable rate, too, I’m talking W-A-Y cheaper than roses, and the memories, longer lasting.

Saturday night, February 18, 2012, you should consider joining us for Locals Night Out. Beginning at 3:00 PM the conference room is reserved for fellowship and mingling with other guests while you check in. There is a wine tasting reception from 5 – 6:00, dinner is on your own from 6 to 8:00, and we have a game of Trivia planned from 8:00 to 9:30. The Lobby Lounge (inside the hotel) is offering Happy Hour pricing on beverages, too! We are bringing cards, games, snacks and even the WII for a late night Bowling Tournament if you dare.

Sunday morning, come downstairs for breakfast and the Pajama Contest between 8 and 9:00 AM! Check out is at 11:00 AM, so you can sleep late if you’d rather.

It is your Staycation, do whatever you’d like.

So what are you waiting for? Reserve your room today, put a note inside your sweeheart’s Valentine’s Day card and pack your bags for a night of fun, right here in your own backyard!

Amelia Hotel at the Beach is on the corner of Sadler Road and Fletcher Avenue, at the round-about near Slider’s. Call now and mention Locals Night Out (904) 206-5200.

More Heads in Beds

By: Judie Mackie

Over development and a poor economy have guests, visitors and tourists on the receiving side of some deeply discounted vacation packages. Sadly, not enough folks are feeling confident about the economy and are hesitant to take advantage of the deals.

Keep in mind these hotels, motels, lodges and inns also have mortgage notes, employees and overhead to contend with. With continued discounts on rates you will likely see discounted quality of services as the lodging industry also tries to deal with cutting expenses.

I saw a story in the Wall Street Journal discussing the major reduction of businesses and attendees participating in trade shows. Knowledge for new products and services can be largely obtained on the World Wide Web and companies can save big money by cutting funds for these expensive road trips, and that is just one measurable indicator.

Conventions, trade shows, meetings, large festivals and personal vacations have contributed to the bottom line of our community for many years. We hope the goods ones make it thru this sluggish market by providing new and enticing ways of getting more “heads in beds” so our community businesses have every opportunity to prosper in this new year.
