New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
Great rates are a given in New Orleans during the summer, but the summer of 2012 brings visitors even more. In keeping with the southern spirit of lagniappe, which means ‘a little something extra’, NewOrleansOnline.com is giving visitors even more reasons to explore the city.
Hotels listed at the NewOrleansOnline.com/summer/ site, will offer not only their best available rates, but other goodies such as free Wi-Fi, free parking, or even a free additional night’s stay. Not to be outdone, New Orleans restaurants, tours, and attractions have joined in and offer special lagniappe discounts and freebies as well.
"We’ve developed an entire summer of New Orleans hotel giveaways and there’s a winner every week,” said Mark Romig, President and CEO of New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation. “We invite folks to ‘test their New Orleans knowledge’ in a fun quiz about New Orleans history and unique culture and at the same time be entered to win our grand prize giveaway, a trip to Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans!"
Upon arrival, hotel visitors will be presented with a Summer Lagniappe VIP pass to activate all the great deals going on in New Orleans. Before hitting the town, visitors may join an interactive forum to ask the experts what they should eat, see, do, and hear in New Orleans. Then, while touring the city, visitors can go to the mobile site: neworleansonline.com/summer/
The NewOrleansOnline.com Summer of Lagniappe VIP program even adds lagniappe to the summer months, ending its campaign on September 30, 2012. The hotel stay giveaways last even longer, ending on November 12, 2012. The Super Bowl XLVII prize will be drawn December 4, 2012.
