National Car Rental reached out to get my help collecting ideas for a new service they’ll be providing for so-called “Underrated, Over-Traveled” cities. The goal is helping business travelers find things to do when on the road in an unfamiliar city that maybe doesn’t get the publicity it deserves — something I think we’ve all struggled with regardless of why we travel. (Ideas for a layover during my next mileage run? I’m all ears!)
They gave me a list of potential cities, and I selected Tucson, Arizona, because it’s one of the stops on this year’s Star MegaDO 5. All responses will be collected and incorporated into the local Tucson National Foursquare location profile so you can find them the next time you’re in town.
Your ideas can include anything, but here are some examples:
- Sports and activities
- Bars and nightlife
- Outdoors attractions, parks, and public facilities
- Arts, films, and live theater
- Historical and famous landmarks
Share your suggestions in the comments below or on Twitter for why Tucson is an awesome destination and deserves to get a little more credit. If you send a tweet, please remember to direct it to me (@HackMyTrip) and to use the hashtag #NationalUOT so we can find it. I will be selecting the five BEST tips and those individuals will receive a prize pack from National that includes:
- $50 American Express gift card
- National Extreme Sport Duffel
- National Ultimate Privacy Luggage Tag
- National 14 oz Striped Coffee Tumbler
I will also be adding a $10 Starbucks gift card for every winner to make sure you have something to put in that coffee mug! If you have several suggestions, you may enter as many times as you like between now and 11:59 PM (Pacific Time) on Thursday, July 11. Winners will be announced on July 12, and each winner will receive only one prize.
This contest is sponsored by National Car Rental, which provided compensation for my help organizing the contest.
