I know it's still cold here in northeast Ohio, but it's not too early to plan for spring and summer, especially when there's a deal like today's Groupon offer. Groupon is offering admission to Port Clinton's African Safari Wildlife Park for just $6 per person (a $22 per person value; that's a 73% savings.) There is a limit six coupons per person and there are a few blackout dates. Still, it's a great deal. You can use the Groupon anytime between now and December 1, 2013, so don't worry that it's cold outside now. This offer doesn't have a "buy by" date, but there are limited number of tickets available at this price.
African Safari Wildlife Park, just minutes away from Cedar Point, makes a great side trip for families visiting the Lake Erie islands and the surrounding area. The 100-acre park features a drive-through safari, which animals will come up to your car and nibble on the carrots and other morsels sold at the gate. There is also a bird sanctuary and even pony and camel rides.
If you're not familiar with Groupon, they offer a new Northeast Ohio discount each day. If enough people purchase the special, then everyone gets the discount. Like today's offer, most represent a significant savings. To learn more about Groupon or to participate in today's offer, click here.
