Get Nomimated for a Free Smokey Mountain Vacation

Smokey mountainsHas the economy made you cut back on vacation plans, or even skip vacation altogether?

It¹s unfortunate, but family vacation is one area many people have trimmed as budgets have gotten tight. Experts have proven that vacations, even short ones, have long-term advantages that can strengthen families and your health.

One family-friendly destination, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, in the Great Smoky Mountains is fighting back with the launch of a campaign called 'Taking Vacation Back.'

Its idea is to invite people to nominate friends, neighbors or relatives who really deserve a break to win a Smoky Mountains vacation and some substantial cash. Those nominated secure online votes, and five winners in June receive a Pigeon Forge vacation and $6,600 to help with a year¹s car payments.

The big event is in July, when one family wins a vacation and $15,000 to help with mortgage or rent payments for a year. A bonus is that anyone who nominates a winner also receives a vacation.

'Taking Vacation Back' stories can be found at this link: That's also where you can nominate someone or simply vote for someone whose story strikes you as deserving a "break."
