Special Travel Vouchers
The Live South Real Estate Show,
sponsored by Ideal Living magazine,
offers a unique, new approach for a
firsthand glimpse of your ideal lifestyle:
a discovery tour voucher program.
Discovery Tour Certificates (
available at a Live South Real Estate Show)
enable you to visit exhibiting communities with special accommodations
as their VIP guests. Compare communities at the show, choose the ones
you’d like to visit and ask them about
their discovery tours! Tour packages
vary, but many include reduced rates
on lodging and opportunities to enjoy
community amenities, as well as insider
tips on what to see and experience in
the area. Some communities include
dinner, a round of golf or a scenic
cruise. Discounted rates range from $99
for three days/two nights.
Discovery tours make it easy to get
away and enjoy yourself. Come to a
show, pick up your Discovery Certificates, select the tours of your choice and
get ready to enjoy a better lifestyle. You
won’t know until you go! You’re on your
way to finding the right place to live!
Q & A:
Q: What is a Discovery Tour?
A. A Discovery Tour is a unique chance for
you to spend a couple of days discovering an
area and community that interests you and
the lifestyle the combination provides. This
will give you a feel for the region and the
attributes of the community, and will give you
a chance to meet with current residents of the
Q: Is this like a time-share
A. No, not at all. Time-share excursions
whisked away multiple potential customers
at a time, with the promise of free luggage,
free stays, etc., all while putting you in a room
and delivering a high-pressure sales pitch on
a condo, etc. that could last hours. A Discovery
Tour takes place at your leisure. You come
down when you want to, take a tour of the
community of your choice and spend a couple
of days in the area. There’s no sales pitch at
all, and you won’t be herded into a room with
20 other people.
Q: Are there discounts on travel?
A. Most of the promotions are for three-day/
two-night accommodations from $99 and
include a personal tour of the community and
dinner or lunch for two. Some even throw in a
round of golf if they have a course on site.
Q: When is the best time to
take a Discovery Tour?
A. As mentioned above, you can take a
tour at your leisure. However, we’ve found
the best time to explore the South is during
the spring and fall. The vacationers are
gone, the air’s a little bit cooler and there
are many festivals going on that allow you
to experience the local flair and the culture
of the area. (Plus if you’re flying down, rates
are relatively cheaper.)
