CHAPEL HILL, NC--(Marketwired - May 30, 2014) - Boardwalks are so evocative of summer fun that they have inspired songs, movies and now one memorable evening at the Residence Inn Chapel Hill. Between 5 and 7 p.m. on June 11, 2014, guests and locals can enjoy the best of boardwalk entertainment while discovering what makes this property one of travelers' favorites among hotels near Research Triangle Park, NC.
For two hours, the grounds of this Chapel Hill lodging will enchant visitors with live entertainment, miniature-golf contests, beanbag tosses and, to document the fun, a carnival photo booth.
To keep revelers energized, The Boardwalk Bash will offer a variety of tasty treats. Visitors can indulge in nostalgic cotton candy, or refuel with something more substantial like hot dogs, hamburgers and chicken. A popcorn station, whose salty, buttery snacks are generally irresistible, will complement the summertime-inspired strawberry and lemon desserts available. Plus guests can sip non-alcoholic, tropical drinks or try something a little stronger at the wine and beer tasting.
Of course, no boardwalk experience would be complete without prizes, and the ones available at this event are a far cry from the oversized stuffed animals usually won at carnivals. Tickets to a performance at Durham Performing Arts, a show at Carolina Theatre and a performance at Carolina Performing Arts are all up for grabs, as are gift certificates to the Aveda Institute Chapel Hill and The Loop. The grand prize is even more spectacular. One lucky winner will receive a two-night stay at his/her choice of a getaway to Charlotte or Wilmington, plus dinner for two.
As guests explore the entertainment and food, they will also see what sets this property apart from other Chapel Hill, NC hotels. Its studio and one- and two-bedroom suites are outfitted with stainless-steel appliances, luxurious bedding and 37-inch, HD, LCD televisions, while amenities like complimentary daily hot breakfasts and a hotel theater with movies and a pool table make every day feel like a vacation. After all, escape, whether it's for a few hours during The Boardwalk Bash or a few weeks for a business trip, is something this property does exceptionally well.
