Lonely Planet dishes out summer travel tips and chance at a Napa Valley trip
Summer is fast approaching and sure to fly by even more quickly than it came. To help Americans get the most out of the summer months, Lonely Planet has launched a special micro-site called "Weekends of Summer" that has 15 free guides for all the weekends between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
The guides reads like a summer to-do list, with suggestions like "pop a cork" and "explore the great outdoors" for each weekend, and then details on where to complete the mission with via a mini-guide. Although it would be great to escape to the Gulf Coast one weekend and then go hunt lobsters in Maine the next, the best thing most of us can do is take Lonely Planet's advice on summertime diversions and try to complete as many as possible.
Of course, perhaps even more exciting than the actual guides is the fact that Lonely Planet and the Napa Valley Destination Council have teamed up to give one lucky reader a trip to wine country valued at over $4,000. Simply surrender your name and email to be entered in the contest and have access to all 15 of the guides for free.
