Excerpts from a bunch of press releases

A while ago we mentioned car shows on this blog. I’ve never been to a boat show but it could be cool to check out all the yachts and stuff: Miami, Fla. – November 2009 – The 69th annual Miami International Boat Show & Strictly Sail Miami cruises into town February 11-15, 2010, where new and experienced boaters from throughout the world can gather in one place to view, board and buy the best the boating industry has to offer. With special deals on everything from sportfishers, sailboats and mega-yachts to engines and the newest electronics, the 2010 Miami International Boat Show is the ideal place to shop, save and enhance every boating experience.

If you’re not looking for warm weather this winter, Vermont has something going on:The 2009 10th Annual Holiday Open House Tour is taking place in Manchester, Vermont on Saturday, December 5 and 12, from 1 – 5 p.m. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Vermont-New Hampshire Komen Race for the Cure (www.vtnhcure.org). Breast cancer survivors will be at most locations to greet guests and thank them for their participation.

You can also head out west to get some skiing in: November 12, 2009, Salt Lake City, UT – According to the just-released Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index of the 50 states, Utah ranked number one as the happiest state in the Union. When you combine this with Salt Lake City’s ranking as the “Fittest City in America” by Men’s Fitness magazine in February 2009, you’ve got two great reasons to discover why the fittest and healthiest people in the U.S. live in the Beehive State.

This winter, visitors will be smiling on the slopes thanks to Salt Lake’s Olympic legacy Gold Medal Podium Package, which allows skiers and snowboarders to explore all of Salt Lake’s fit and happy environs, as well as re-live Salt Lake’s spectacular 2002 Winter Olympic spirit during this year of the XXI Winter Olympiad. The deal is simple: book a four-day, four-night vacation by December 15, 2009, that includes the Ski Salt Lake Super Pass and lodging at any of 22 participating properties in greater Salt Lake and the adjacent mountain resorts and the 4th day of skiing/riding and your 4th night of lodging are absolutely FREE.

If you’re looking to take a cruise, NCL has 7 day cruises on their new Epic starting at $949 (Caribbean).
