Recently I made a mattress run to finish out a Wyndham promotion at a Days Inn in Holland, Michigan. What is a mattress run? Its a cheap quick stay to optimize a points or status promotion with a hotel group. The Days Inn was cheap and I spent roughly an hour at the hotel.
We have driven a couple of times down to the Pigeon Forge area but have never a visit to Dollywood yet. I was sent a promotion that is online offering adult tickets at the kid ticket price. This makes all tickets $56.95 for a one day pass good from July 16 through September 26, 2018.
These tickets are available online only and at this link location: https://www.dollywood.com/Deals/Special-Offers/EPKP?cid=eml_004022&spMailingID=35211097&spUserID=NjU5OTUzNDA4Nzc0S0&spJobID=1321991478&spReportId=MTMyMTk5MTQ3OAS2

The months are coming so quickly I did not realize I was two months behind in posting my Fair Trade Friday boxes.
A new block of tickets go on sale this morning for Hamilton in Chicago. These dates will be from September 2018 through January 2019. We were successful in purchasing tickets last fall for a spring break family surprise. These tickets are generally the most affordable way to get into the show.

If you are a regular reader of Stretchingittotravel you know we love activities that are low cost. State parks are great places to visit due to their cheap cost and many activities.
We spent a few nights at Fort Myers Beach with the intention of visiting Lovers Key State Park. We arrived around 9am Christmas morning to a rapidly filling parking lot. Admission for the day is $8 a car and the park is open from 8am to sunset daily.
We waited a bit for a trolley to drop us near the waterfront. There was some confusion as to if the trolley ran on Christmas so we ended up walking the short path to the beach.
Over a few trips we have tossed around doing an airboat tour. The family always thought it would be fun but generally I could not find one at a cost I was happy with. This is not the case in the Everglades. Competition is fierce and prices are lower than any others we had seen to date.
I also could not chose between taking a grassland tour or mangrove tour. Then I read about Captain Mitch’s tours. They offer a tour that visits both on their property.
I was able to secure a reservation online a couple of weeks in advance of our December trip for an afternoon tour. This location is just outside of Naples.
Our tour was so much fun! We started out in the mangroves and ended up in the grassslands. We saw a few gators, a gator nest and many birds.
Flying through the mangrove channels is a very unique experience.
The one hour tour is forty dollars for adults and twenty dollars per child. There is also a coupon on the website for three dollars off per person.
After the airboat ride you can go inside the office and meet an alligator. You can take pictures and hold it. We had a great time and would love to ride again.
