Sun, Surf and the Super Bowl

This year’s winter has been an especially hard one and this week alone has been extremely nuts! While we’re all making predictions about the Super Bowl, I’m hoping Punxsutawney Phil's early spring prediction is right! If you’re dealing with the constant barrage of snowstorms and bitter cold, now is a great time for you to escape to a tropical getaway. One of my favorite escapes is none other than St. Lucia, which is actually featuring its own Super Bowl event!

The beautiful island of St. Lucia is one of the best-kept secrets in the Caribbean. With miles of beaches, acres of lush rainforests and incredibly scenic mountains, there’s something for
everyone to enjoy. And, in honor of this year’s Super Bowl, the new Smuggler’s Cove Resort and Spa is celebrating their recent Grand Opening with a Big Game Weekend. Participants can watch the game on the beach and enjoy VIP receptions, boat cruises and special workout sessions with NFL alumni!

Here are some other great reasons to visit St. Lucia:

Relaxation: If you’re looking for the perfect tropical getaway, you can’t do any better than St. Lucia. You can relax on the pristine beaches, or visit one of the many mud and mineral baths on the island.
Romance: There’s a reason why ABC picked St. Lucia to film portions of its hit show, “The Bachelor.” Whether you’re rekindling that old spark or starting a new romance, St. Lucia is the ideal setting for couples.
Family: St. Lucia is a great place to “Go Bananas” with your family. There are a number of kid-friendly activities for children of any age, including skyrides, whale watching and horseback riding.
Adventure: Want to climb a mountain? Hike in a rainforest? Go scuba diving? You can do it all in St. Lucia. There are plenty of adventures suitable for any activity level.
Entertainment: Who doesn’t love music? The 20th anniversary of Saint Lucia Jazz will be held April 30 –May 8, and will feature six time Grammy winner, John Legend, as this year’s headliner. This is the leading and longest running Jazz event in the Caribbean!
Food: What better way to enjoy the beautiful tropical scenery than on the patio of a world-famous restaurant? Enjoy some of the amazing cuisine, including fresh seafood, Creole dishes, and authentic Caribbean food.

So, this Super Bowl Sunday you can imagine yourself on the shores of St. Lucia instead of suffering through the interminable winter up North, or fighting the Super Bowl crowds in Dallas. Leave us a comment about how you are spending your Super Bowl Sunday!
