Take a vacation on Uncle Sam: What to do with your tax rebate
Take a lesson from Capt. John Smith, the English sailor who, after braving the Atlantic, stepped ashore at Virginia Beach, Va., on April 26, 1607, and ventured north to help colonize Jamestown, one of the first settlements in America. Explore those Old Dominion beaches under an incentive package offered by the Virginia Beach Convention & Visitors Bureau.
The packages, which begin at about $300 per couple and go upward to $1,200 for two, include a two-night stay at one of 25 participating hotels and other niceties such as tickets to the Virginia Zoo, a bottle of Champagne, passes to a dolphin-watching cruise or movie tickets. Airfare is not included. The amenities package varies with the hotels. Details: www.vbfun.com.
