Back in December AirTran announced it would begin seasonal service to Bermuda from Baltimore and Atlanta—a positive development for travelers to the island since the no-frills airlines' fares have always been historically low. Well, if you live in the Baltimore area—and even if you don't—the news just got even better, especially if you're hankering for your next sunny vacation. On March 17th representatives from the Bermuda Department of Tourism will invade The Gallery at Harbor Place in Baltimore from 11:30 to 2:30pm, where they'll be bringing a taste of the island to Charm City. There plans to be live steel pan music and tons of prizes most notably a three-night trip to Bermuda, which includes roundtrip airfare on AirTran and accommodations at ritzy Tucker's Point Hotel & Spa (yes, that could potentially be your balcony view). What? You don't live anywhere near Baltimore? No problem! Just fill out this form for a chance to win a trip for two to Bermuda (retail value a whopping $2,500!). You have until March 31st to enter and the winner will be notified on or around April 1st. Good luck!
