Living Social has just rolled out a new option - travel deals including day trips and "nearcations".
Here is the information from the press release they sent:
"Washington D.C., November 10, 2010 –LivingSocial (www.livingsocial.com), the online source for people to find handpicked experiences at a great value, today announced the launch of LivingSocial Escapes, a travel site offering unbeatable savings on curated, unforgettable adventures. Just as LivingSocial lets people discover new services, experiences and attractions at deep discounts in their hometown or places they visit, LivingSocial Escapes will now help anyone find one-of-a-kind day trips, packaged nearcations, quick escapes that don’t require air-travel, or weekend excursions they might not typically pursue. In October, LivingSocial acquired local adventure company Urban Escapes, the company’s first step towards providing its more than 10 million subscribers a chance to experience diverse, fun and unique adventures, produced by a team of on-the-ground experts.
LivingSocial Escapes packages are available for one week – not just for 24 hours – and are accessible to anyone who clicks on them. To enhance the social experience, LivingSocial’s unique referral model allows users to get their experience for free if they refer three friends who also participate in the deal"
