SUMMER VACATION PLANS: COMMENT TO WIN!

Now that summer is in full swing, we know many of you out there are ready for a big vacation—if you haven’t taken one already!  Last month we talked about road trips, but that’s only one of countless options to get away from it all.  With a passport in hand, your next adventure can take you anywhere on this planet!  Are you headed to a beachfront resort with the family?  Or maybe an Alaskan journey filled with glaciers and mountains is in the cards.  A romantic couples getaway to Tuscany will put any work-related stress at ease.  If the summer sunshine is too intense, you can even winter in New Zealand or Patagonia!  Of course for some of us, a little time off for a staycation is the absolutely perfect way to ‘get away’ without actually going anywhere.

So we want to hear where YOU plan to go this summer!  Tell us all about your amazing vacation plans below by adding a comment to this blog post and you could win a free pair of Skechers to wear on your trip!   TWO winners will be selected from those who comment.  And don’t wait on this—the deadline is Friday, July 15 at noon PST.

And then once you win our vacation comment sweepstakes (or even if you don’t) snap a picture during your trip of you wearing Skechers and share it on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with #SpottedinSkechers for a chance to win a $25 Skechers gift card!  A winner is selected on each social channel every month.  We love seeing vacation photos and can’t wait to see yours!  To help inspire you, check out the top image and gallery below for recent entries!  Good luck and happy traveling!

Complete rules for the blog comment contest are available here.   Additionally complete rules for the ongoing #SpottedinSkechers Sweepstakes are available here.

    Rio De Janeiro, Brazil for the summer Olympics. I love both the summer and winter Olympics but for me personally there are more sports that I follow at the summer Olympics. Tennis, Diving and Gymnastics are my favorite. I am a serious Tennis fan year round and love that all of the top players from every country participate. Add to all of this the beautiful country the Olympics are being held in this year and it has all of the makings for the vacation of a lifetime! However, I have been ill and on bed rest for 4 months and will probably be this way until October. Seeing as I am a struggling widow with children, we will be taking this all in on our TV in the living room and as long as we are together we will still manage to have a great summer vacation.
