I have an Amelia Island Valentine's Day gift idea for you and it is way less expensive than a dozen roses.
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.
