Amid the slumping economy and with February school vacation week looming, the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism has just launched a program that offers savings of at least 25 percent at more than 300 Bay State hotels, restaurants, and attractions from now till March 31.
To look at a list of participating lodgings, restaurants and attractions, you must go to the agency's website and print out a Mass Value Pass. To redeem discounts, consumers must show the pass at points of purchase and be sure to mention the Pass when booking hotel reservations.
What's that? You say you're really strapped and can't afford to get away? Well, perhaps you and yours will be looking to go out to dinner or hit the theater -- dare I say it, a staycation or perhaps a naycation. Being able to shave a few bucks off is never a bad thing.
