Travel is like comfort food. It’s good for you.

A vacation offers a chance for your body to turn off the stress systems, to recuperate and to repair.

Think of it this way, if you need a vacation, so do the loved ones on your gift list!

The idea of giving friends and family the gift of travel is a great one. They’ll love it, especially that person who values experiences over things. Like comfort food, travel is one of life’s necessities – it’s simply good for the soul.

Black Hills Vacations sells travel gift certificates. The certificates are a great idea for any event and come in any dollar amount. The certificates can be used to purchase airfare, lodging, tours, attractions, equipment rentals, events and meals. Here are a couple ideas:

A $100 Travel Voucher will purchase entrance for the entire family to Mt Rushmore, Devils Tower, Crazy Horse Memorial, Badlands National Park and Custer State Park.

A $350 Travel Voucher will purchase a full day of snowmobiling for two (two seat sled) and two nights lodging. That same amount will give that tough to buy for person on your list a ½ day, professionally guided fly fishing trip and two night’s lodging. Looking for more ideas?
