Deer hunting season is near and I have a great idea for the "Deer Widows" this year. Group up and head out to the Grand Traverse for an amazing time of relaxation, good food, shopping, a wine tour, and more!
I was sent the following press release and wanted to share it with you. Make sure to take advantage of this!
As men set out for a late fall or early winter weekend of male bonding, hunting and storytelling by the campfire, women can delight in a no deer widow left behind weekend at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.
Deer widow is a term referred to someone who is abandoned when groups of people flock to the forests during the annual deer hunting season. With plenty of amenities on-site, as well as plenty to do nearby, deer widows can revel in a weekend of pampering, shopping, fine dining, and outdoor beauty while staying at the 900-acre Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.
Some of the fantastic on-property amenities include:
Spa Grand Traverse: Be treated like a queen at the resort’s full-service spa. The tranquil environment immerses guests in deep relaxation while revitalizing the body and mind. Make a selection from the extensive menu, in particular their signature cherry infused treatments, and prepare for the ultimate experience in pampering.
The Gallery of Shops: Shopping till you drop is no problem here since home is just an elevator ride away. Offering a dozen amazing shops including Dylan’s Candy Bar, there’s always something for everyone.
Restaurants and lounges: Guests can release their inner foodie at one of the several restaurants and lounges located on-site. Whether taking in panoramic views on the 16th floor at Aerie Restaurant & Lounge, or biting into a hearty sandwich at Sweetwater American Bistro, there’s food available for every gal’s preferences.
Located near Traverse City, Mich., the area offers plenty of activities and attractions including:
Turtle Creek Casino: Feeling lucky? Come roll the dice at this 56,000 square foot casino, open 24/7 and located less than 10 minutes from the Resort. Complete with several different table games with minimum bids as low as $5, as well as 1,300 of the latest slot games, ranging from penny slots all the way up to $100 denomination slots. Many video casino games are also available. Take the free resort shuttle here day or night. www.turtlecreekcasino.com
