MONOGRAMS UNVEILS 2014 NORTH AMERICA GETAWAYS
For those determined to “go” close to home – to explore, to see the sites and enjoy the backyard landscapes of North America – Monograms has unveiled nearly 50 itineraries, from sea to shining sea, including two (2) new packaged vacations to Los Angeles and Newfoundland.
With help from Monograms, travelers driven by wanderlust can easily experience North America’s famous national parks or its vibrant cities. They can dig into a genuine bison burger or savor a piping hot Chicago-style pizza! They can even discover the charm of walking Québec City or take a driving vacation through breathtaking Alaska. Meanwhile, others are stuck looking at maps or worse, staying at home.
And for a third year, Monograms is partnering with the National Park Foundation (NPF), the official charity of America’s national parks, to provide unique all-in-one packaged vacation experiences in these amazing national treasures. As part of this GoParks! partnership, when travelers book a Monograms US national park vacation, the company will make a donation to the NPF at no additional cost to travelers.
“When travelers book GoParks! vacations, they’re not only guaranteed an oasis where postcard views meet life-altering experiences, they’re helping us ensure the ongoing conservation of our national parks,” said Scott Nisbet, president and CEO for the Globus family of brands. “Our outdoor escapes continue to be among our most popular vacations.”
Monograms’ top North American itineraries that showcase the great outdoors are Canadian Rockies by Rail, America’s National Parks, Oahu, Maui & Kauai, California Coast and Canyon Escape.
Also popular are the company’s single- and multi-city packages. Travelers can spend a week in the city or region of their choice for an in-depth discovery or just a few nights for a mini-break. And, because Monograms arranges transportation between cities, it’s easy to combine multiple destinations like Vancouver & Victoria; Oahu & Maui; Boston, New York & Washington D.C. or Los Angeles & San Diego.
As part of its all-in-one packaged vacation options, Monograms suggests and assists in arranging activities for travelers such as flying high over glaciers on an exciting helicopter excursion (Denali National Park), sampling some of North America’s best wines (San Francisco/wine country); experiencing America’s dark side on a Ghosts & Gravestones tour (Boston); enjoying the scenery of a historic city by river cruise (Québec City) and learning the basics of Louisiana cooking (New Orleans).
Monograms also gives travelers a choice of vetted hotels to fit their travel style. And adding another personal touch to each domestic vacation, Monograms offers travelers access to on-site Local Hosts in their start city on North American vacations. Upon arrival in their destination, the Local Host is on-hand to answer questions, arrange excursions and offer suggestions to ensure a one-of-a-kind vacation.
