A Deal on ICE!


I know many people have wanted to experience ICE!, the frozen wonderland at the Gaylord National Resort, but have been deterred by the high price of tickets. If that’s the case with you, then this new LivingSocial deal will make your day:

Get tickets to the ICE! Ice Sculpture show for $12/child ticket (regularly $25) and $17/adult tickets (regularly $35). That’s more than half off the original cost! Child tickets are valid for ages 4-12, and adult tickets for ages 13 and up. Children ages 3 and under are free.

Be aware of the fine print — there are black out dates, and tickets are not valid on Saturdays.

Happy Savings!

Two Great DC Deals

Living Social has two fantastic deals today that both kids and adults can enjoy.  Up first is baseball.  If your family likes to root for the home team, then check out this offer for a Day at Nationals Park.  For just $25, get a behind the scenes tour of the park–a peek a the press box and club house, plus an all-you-can-eat picnic, some swinging in the batting cages, and a possible visit by the Racing Presidents.  Parents who want to add beer and wine to all of that can buy the tour for $35.   The catch on the deal:  It’s only good on two dates, September 18 or October 2.  There are still six more days to get in on this, but it’s a good one, and could sell out fast.

For some family fun downtown, here’s a half-price deal on International Spy Museum tickets.  For $9, gain access to the intriguing world of espionage through loads of cool interactive exhibits, 600 spy artifacts, and more.  And if you use your voucher before October 1, you get 15% off a Spy Store purchase. Get in on it now–this deal only lasts for a day!
