It was a fun Field Trips with Sue segment on CBS Better Mornings Atlanta today. We had a full studio showcasing some last minute experiential gifts for Valentine’s day that you can purchase now and enjoy in the coming weeks, plus some fun activities for the entire family over the President’s Day weekend. In all the excitement, I forgot to mention our Party Like a Rock Star giveaway. Enter to win an evening fit for a star at the Omni CNN Center Hotel. The Party Like a Rock Star package includes deluxe accommodations, swag and pre-concert bash. Normally you have to provide your own concert tickets with this hotel package, but our giveaway includes two tickets to see Bon Jovi on Feb. 27 at Philips Arena! Here’s what else we talked about on this mornings segment.

- Medieval Times Good Knight Package – If the rocker life isn’t for you, how about going back to Medieval Times. The Good Knight Package, available at the Courtyard Marriott Gwinnett Place Mall and launching soon at the Hampton Inn Sugarloaf Parkway. The package includes accommodations and tickets to Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament. Your room is your castle with a knight’s tunic and sword waiting for you. If you have a maiden, rather than a squire, there is a crown instead of a tunic. The Deluxe Package includes a knight play set children can enjoy while in the room. The tunic/crown and sword are yours to keep, but the play set stays with the room. This package isn’t just for kids. A representative from Medieval times told me they are having more and more adults participate – and of course you order a tunic that fits. For some tips on how to navigate Medieval Times for the best experience, see our post on Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament.
