Feel Like Traveling? Give It A Bid



Win a family getaway to CoCo Key Resort near Columbus, Ohio, in the SATW Auction

If you’ve been thinking about a trip to Phuket or Fort Lauderdale, check out the Society of American Travel Writers’ annual Online Auction. You may score a getaway at a bargain price. The bidding opened today and wraps up Saturday, November 20.

Right here in the Great Lakes region you can put your money on a Golf & Spa getaway at the West Baden Springs Hotel in French Lick, Indiana, or a fun family overnight stay with water park passes at CoCo Key Water Resort at Cherry Valley Lodge near Columbus, Ohio.

I stayed one night at the Lodge last summer, and confess that I did not take the plunge at the water park. I did stroll the lovely grounds and enjoyed a breakfast on the patio of cinnamon French toast and fresh berries.

Compared to the auction’s previous years the number of trips currently up for grabs is modest, but new items will continue to trickle in so check back often.

SATW is an organization of travel journalists, photographers, and public relations representatives. Funds raised from the auction are dedicated to professional development programs for its members (including yours truly).
