How’s this for a great promotion? Eco-lodges around Ithaca, NY — located in the heart of the Finger Lakes wine region — are offering a free night’s stay to anyone who comes in a hybrid. The particpating B&Bs are looking to the promotion as a way to drum up business and reward drivers for “choosing an alternative vehicle while encouraging other motorists to travel green.” The one catch? The free offer is good on stays of two nights or more through Mothers Day (May 10). So you’ll have to spend something.
Awesome, right? And I’m not biased at all just because I live there. I think it’s a brilliant way to encourage people to visit the region — as well as easing the costs in the process. They’ll even hook you up if you arrive in a hybrid rental! Here’s a list of the participating green B&Bs if you’re interested:
