CLOSED! Kids Love Ohio – Travel Book Giveaway

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on October 4, 2010

Update: This giveaway is now closed…and the winners are:

Michelle says, “I would like to take the kids to the Great Smoky Mountains.”

Kathryn J. says, “I subscribe via google reader.”

Becky says, “Tweeted!”

Diana H. says, “We would love to see more of Ohio.”

Kimberly E. says, “Fan on Facebook!”

Winners have been notified via email with further instructions.  Get ready for some new giveaways coming up soon on $5 Dinners!

With the start of the Fall and Holiday Travel Seasons, I wanted to introduce you all to the “Kids Love” Travel Book Series…and do a giveaway too!

I must say…I’m quite impressed.  Michele sent me the Kids Love I-75 book (makes sense, right, I’m in Ohio and I-75 runs right near our house) and I was struck right away with the comprehensive coverage the book provides for all the kiddo friendly activities around here.  I’m not from Ohio originally, so I don’t have the luxury of automatically knowing what fun kid friendly things there are to do in the area.  Ask me a kid friendly thing to do in or around the San Antonio area and I’ve got it covered.  But around here, I got nothing.

Well, I did have nothing. Now I have Michele’s fabulous book. And we now have what will likely be a never ending list of places to visit and things to see/explore in Ohio!!! And Georgia. And Florida. (Hmm…maybe a road trip is in order soon…)

With some expert advice and a little planning, you should be ready to “get out and go” on a family adventure! By  gathering the extra help from one of these travel books, you’ll have thousands of ideas that are sure to be a real hit with the kids!

This week, I’ll be giving away 5 of Michele’s books.  (And I’ll let you choose which books…ones that would help you find the activities in your area! She has quite a few Kids Love state guides available on her site. You can also find more information and ideas for kids travel games on her site as well.)

Giveaway Details

1. Contest ends Wednesday, October 6th at 5 pm EST. Winners will be announced back here on this post, and notified via email with further instructions.

We love the Discovery Center in Rockford, IL (free on Thursdays!). But our oldest daughter attends the U of Dayton, so we are always looking for fun things for younger siblings to do in Ohio, whenever we visit for a long weekend.

We live in Columbus! Since we homeschool we love COSI in the fall when the kids go back to school! But since it’s Autumn you can always find us at a farm or green house like Slate Run, Dills Greenhouse, DeMonye’s and Leeds! =o) We would love a Kids Love Ohio book! We borrowed one from the library~but you can only check it out so many times before you have to return it! ha ha
