The San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau is holding a contest to give away a six-day “dream vacation” to the city for a same-sex couple to get married.
The sweepstakes, which ends Aug. 1, is open to U.S. residents who are at least 25 years old.
“We’re celebrating the new laws allowing same-sex weddings in California,” ConVis said on its Web site.
“Ever dreamed of being married in Paradise? In a short story, tell us why you should win the wedding vacation of your dreams in San Diego. The best story will win a trip that includes your marriage license, transportation, accommodations, dining and entertainment.”
The prize includes airline tickets; five nights at a plush hotel; dinners at five fancy restaurants; wine, cheese and chocolate tasting at an upscale venue; tickets to the renowned Old Globe Theatre; tickets to the GLBT Diversionary Theatre; “passports” to Balboa Park’s numerous museums; a massage at a swank spa; a wedding license; and tickets to Fashion Week.
