Cayuga County Redefines Winter Getaways: Hibercation

Dec 6, 2021

Hibercation: part hibernation, part vacation and 100 percent good for the soul!

- Local businesses are offering a fresh take on a cozy winter getaway as part of a regional tourism campaign presented by the Cayuga County Office of Tourism and its partners. Hibercation is described as part hibernation, part vacation, and 100 percent good for the soul. This campaign, which runs from January 15 through March 15, entices locals and tourists alike to get out and hunker down and relax in Cayuga County.

Hibercation is the perfect cure for cabin fever. “The falling snow, the cozy inns, the festive shops, and restaurants create the perfect atmosphere for snuggling and reconnecting," says Claire Dunlap, marketing manager at the Cayuga County Office of Tourism.

We are inviting people to enjoy some guilt-free downtime while they escape the day-to-day pressures of work and home. We all need a break from laundry, dishes, children, and all other responsibilities. Occasionally it's important to separate yourself from your home and enjoy the luxury of a hotel room. Binge-watch TV, dine out, enjoy a glass of wine, hot cocoa or tea, a hibercation vacation is an opportunity for you to do as little or as much as you want.

Local hotels are offering special hibercation packages complete with a welcome gift. Local breweries, Summerhill Brewing and Prison City are offering drink specials and local businesses are offering special hibercation discounts.

Looking for the perfect gift? Gift a special person in your life a Hibercation! After all the stress of the holiday, show a special person how much you appreciate them with a short getaway – A Hibercation!
