Detroit, Mich. (PRWEB) August 15, 2007
American Road Magazine® is pleased to announce the winner of the June 2007 American Road® Trip Sweepstakes, sponsored by the Illinois National Road Association. The June 2007 sweepstakes winner is Vickie Boackle, of Trussville, Alabama.
Known as the "Road That Built the Nation," the National Road began in Cumberland, Maryland and continued west to the Mississippi River. It was the first federally funded road thanks to the efforts of the Thomas Jefferson administration. The road in Illinois offers a unique blend of historic sites, fun activities, small town America, and farm country.
Ms. Boackle won accommodations for three nights for two people, special tours of historic sites including a guided boat tour of beautiful Governor Bond Lake, the Historic State House in Vandalia--where Abraham Lincoln's political career began. dinner for two at Nuby's Steakhouse in Pocahontas--a popular spot in the Roaring '20s, and lunch for two at the Oatman House Tea Room in Collinsville--built by Dr. Charles Oatman, a former drummer boy in the Civil War.
You, too, could be a winner of an American Road® Trip Sweepstakes! Another contest is now underway. The winner (and one guest) will stay one night at the AmericInn Minocqua located on Hwy 51, downtown Minocqua (Wisconsin). Guests may enjoy nearby Lake Minocqua where individuals relax and play on the beach. The AmericInn provides complimentary breakfast and an evening beer and wine reception to guests. The elegant Norwood Pines Supper Club provides a $50 dining certificate. Fifty dollars in gasoline is included.
The lucky winner will also be a guest at the Merrill Super 8--in the Special Jacuzzi Room. Gift certificates from the Merrill Chamber of Commerce and a special gift basket from Three Wishes, a family store of fine, unique home and garden décor completes the package. We invite you to experience the cultures and learn the stories found only along Wisconsin Highway 51--a great American road.
