USS Iowa in LA: 2 for 1 offer

A number of readers will have decided to go to USA for half term break. Those without children might also head there for some sun and some warmth. The two most popular states are California and Florida probably due to the connections these have with Disney. This year, there will be some bargains once you get there.

Starting with Florida, most of you will probably end up in Orlando. But if you spread your wings and go to Miami then, for the fourth consecutive year, the month of October will be offering deals. It’s because it is Miami Attractions Month. It’s time to act like a kid again as visitors and residents alike can explore and rediscover Miami’s amazing attractions October 1-31, 2013 and double their fun with Buy One / Get One Free plus additional offers available at attractions throughout Greater Miami.

With close to two dozen participating attractions, the options to explore and enjoy Miami attractions are as diverse as the destination and include something for everyone. Make Miami Attractions Month a time to explore the exotic, extra-ordinary and exciting attractions that can only be found in Miami.

In California, the main attraction may be Anaheim near Los Angeles because that is where Disneyland is. Visitors who book two nights or more at any participating Los Angeles area hotel from October. 7 until Nov. 12 will receive two free museum passes and gift shop discounts at more than 20 participating institutions including the California Science Centre, the Craft & Folk Art Museum, the Fowler Museum at UCLA, The Getty Center, The Getty Villa, Hollywood Museum, MOCA, Museum of Tolerance, Pacific Asia Museum, The Paley Center for Media, The Petersen Automotive Museum and the Skirball Cultural Center.

You probably won’t visit half of the museums but if you did you would save almost $400. The city’s oldest museum in continuous operation, the Natural History Museum, is marking its 100th anniversary with the recent opening of Becoming Los Angeles—a 14,000-sq.-ft. exhibit that pays tribute to its heritage. The Getty Center is gearing up for its 15th anniversary later this year and the Walt Disney Concert Hall is celebrating a decade with a series of performances and events in September and October. And, of course, the most obvious anniversary just a little out of Los Angeles is the legendary Hollywood Sign’s famous 50-foot tall letters. Only a fortnight ago it celebrated its 90th birthday!

So the two most popular areas for British visitors will at least help keep the budget in some sort of control when you are there. And don’t forget to pick-up the coupon booklets that you’ll find in your hotel lobby.
