In spring 2010, my husband had just landed a new (and better) job, and we celebrated with a vacation in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach. Actually, the vacation would’ve happened regardless—the timing just worked out so that family vacation turned into a week-long celebration. And celebrate we did, with a couple nice dinners out, a deep-sea fishing excursion, a trip to Adventure Island for the kids, and topped everything off with Gulf shopping spree. It was a good week.
Two years later I’m thinking I might be able to plan this same trip, right down to the Gulf Shores Plantation condo rates—which, according to the Plantation’s Condo Bonus Days special, are the same now as they were two years ago. Considering the cost of everything else under the sun is increasing these days, I find this very refreshing and immensely helpful when planning a spring break getaway. And even better is that throughout spring (March 12th through May 22nd) the 4th and 7th nights are free. Not only will we be paying 2010 rates, we’ll only pay for six nights for a seven-night vacation. Yet another reason to celebrate!
Guess it’s time to start planning. I don’t mean to wish away time, but it wouldn’t be the worst thing if the next couple of months passed by quickly. Come on spring!
