The heat of the summer sun is kicking into high gear and thoughts of a getaway are on the brains of most of us. What is more iconic than the American summer road trip?
At AutoNation, we wanted to give two lucky winners closer to their dream trip on the open road. In our Travel, Stay and Play promotion, we asked you to tell us where you would go, what landmarks you would see and what would be playing in your car stereo if you could plan your perfect road trip. From the Grand Canyon to Key West, the deep South to Colorado’s Red Rocks, your ideas ran the gamut of awesomeness when it comes to road trips. We wish we could send you all on your way!
Congratulations are in order for Cyndi Stacy, our grand prize winner of Travel, Stay and Play and to Santiago Lupo who was voted second place.
Cyndi and her friend and business partner Sam Eigenbrodt are hitting the road with their iUnplug Project – a road trip with a mission to spread the word about how important it is to take a break from tech and see the world. We’re happy to support their mission and can’t wait to follow their journey. iUnplug will receive $4,500 in travel cash to help make their trip a reality.
Santiago’s ‘Don’t Choose Your Own Adventure’ trip idea takes the popular Choose You Own Adventure book series and turns it on its head. Using social media, his friends will choose the details of his trip as he travels-from where he stays to where he eats. It’s up to them. We loved Santiago’s fearless approach and will be awarding him with $2,500 in spending cash to use on his adventure.
As promised, 100 random entrants to Travel, Stay and Play will receive a $25 gift card to their favorite restaurant. Keep an eye on your email inbox to see if you’re one of them!
