A new campaign from Cayuga County Office of Tourism, in New York’s Finger Lakes region, wants you to take a “hibercation.” The entire premise encourages you to slow down, relax, be as lazy as you want, and never feel pressured to do more while you’re on a trip. You can spend the entire stay in your hotel room, and that’s perfectly fine.

The campaign brings together a range of area partners, including hotels, breweries, shops and spas to help make your hibercation exactly what you want and need in order to recoup this winter. Select hotels are offering specials like 10 percent off your stay, a fourth night free, or daily breakfast and a bottle of wine as a welcome gift. Similarly, retail and activity partners are offering savings and specials, too, with coupons of varying amounts for everything from spa treatments to local wines and beers to thrifted items or gifts.
