Everyone has a hard to shop for somebody on their list who seems to have everything they need. What do you get them? Think beyond material goods and focus on experiences that will provide lasting memories without the clutter. Shopping for experiences for friends and relatives who live across the country isn’t hard thanks to LivingSocial.
Every day the LivingSocial site is a treasure trove of local deals, escapes, and products. As an email subscriber with preferences set to alert me of local deals in our Maryland suburb and in nearby Washington, D.C., I am the first to know about the site’s newest offers in our area. Sometimes it’s the chance to snap up a dining deal at a favorite restaurant, buy discounted tickets to a favorite area attraction or one we’ve had on our family to-do list, learn a new skill, or a good excuse to plan a girls’ night out.
This summer when Emily and I made a spontaneous trip to Baltimore, we used LivingSocial to guide our activities around the Inner Harbor. We used our annual Maryland Science Center membership purchased earlier in the year from LivingSocial for our visit and found discounted admission to the historic ships we always admire when we walk around the harbor. LivingSocial made it easy to find great activities close to where we were staying through a quick search for a budget friendly and memorable girls’ weekend together.
Using LivingSocial to Plan Some Fun in Las Vegas Before CES
In January, I’ll be heading to Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Showcase (CES) as a Digital Correspondent for Cox Communications where I will be bringing you all the latest tech trends and gadgets to come in 2016 and beyond. Before I spend two long days walking 2.2 million square feet of the show floor with my camera crew, I’m looking forward to some time with my husband in the desert. We always fly out a day before press events start so we can be sure we have a little time together before going our separate ways as we attempt to conquer the largest consumer technology showcase. I’m excited for the work that I’m going to be doing with Cox but also to see different parts of Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas Strip offers plenty to do but knowing we’ll be spending the rest of the week inside, I’ve been looking for an adventure in the great outdoors. After typing in Las Vegas as my location, I found that we could hop on an ATV and spend the day traversing Nellis Dunes with Las Vegas ATV Tours, up the romance with a champagne and brunch hot air balloon ride, or rent Segways to soak in some sights beyond the Strip with a stop at Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Boulder City, and Hemenway Park where big horn sheep tend to roam.
Our day could end reliving memories of a trip to Brazil by dining at a churrascaria before seeing Zumanity by Cirque du Soleil or Vegas from above thanks to discounted tickets on the High Roller Observation Wheel. After a day of fun, we can head back to the comfort of our hotel room booked on LivingSocial, of course!
Once we decide how we want to spend our time before CES, I can purchase vouchers and access them through the free LivingSocial’s mobile app for iOS and Android. I don’t have to worry about printing them and bringing them with me because they can be accessed through the app while on the go. I can also browse new offers and purchase any that might be of interest while in Las Vegas via the app.
Since LivingSocial deals can be found in 304 North American cities and 42 in Europe, it’s easy to find something great for your friends and loved ones this holiday season that they’ll love and fit your budget!
