  1. Since my husband passed five years ago, I have been living in the desert of Elpaso Texas. I truly miss Illinois. I grew up there, went to college at Western Illinois University. I miss the nature and greenery of Illinois. My sister lives in Chicago and if I won this trip, it would be a dream. Come true to get out of this hot dry city. Fingers crossed!

  2. I have booked this trip. If I won this I would invite my daughter and her husband to go with us.

  3. We have NOT be away this summer due my son & daughters schedules. Therefore we’re spending money in other ways, but NOTHING compares to getting away.
    This would be a dream come true for us!

  4. Celebrating our 20 year anniversary this year. My husband and I both work in healthcare and this would make for a great weekend to celebrate!! Praying we win.

  5. Looking forward to being able to get away for a weekend with my daughter. With our busy lives we don’t get to spend much time together. Would be nice to connect,relax and catch up again.

  6. It has been a rough year. We already had to cancel our Vegas trip for our 25th anniversary due to truck issues that took all of the money we had put back. I have been looking for somewhere to go for our 25th and had been looking here. I would love to win this and celebrate a special anniversary

  7. I’ve been curious about this place for years. Would really like to check it out for an all family gathering.

  8. My “reason” is much different than others. I had a horrible breakup ordeal in May. My son has been very present through the entirety since that awful day. He has taken me to concerts, dinner and movies. (I’m tearing up typing this from appreciation for my son) Benjamin is a brewery/beer connoisseur! Oh the joy it would be to be able to share this experience with him.

  9. My Husband and I went on the first Beer and Winery tour Aug 11th -13th and we had a Great time. This was a great Anniversary weekend for us. Horseback riding and a picnic and rain all amazing. Thank you for a Great time.
