Auburn Hotels Make Way for a Summer Camp the Whole Family Can Enjoy

At the Auburn Marriott Opelika Hotel & Conference Center at Grand National, Luxury and Activities Unite in One Exciting Program

OPELIKA, AL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/14 -- Anyone who thinks that, after the age of 13, camp is a thing of the past ought to make a reservation this summer at the Auburn Marriott Opelika Hotel & Conference Center at Grand National. This luxury property is reinventing the concept with its Camp Soaring Summer, which offers travelers of every sort -- families, couples and even business guests -- the one-of-a-kind experiences that make a trip unforgettable. Camp, in other words, is officially cool again.

Perhaps the most compelling way the property has distinguished its camp from other Auburn, Alabama hotel deals is in its creative blend of luxury and simplicity. Guests arrive at the magnificent, estate-like property and drink in views of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail and the 2,000 acres of lakefront country. Yet Camp Soaring Summer makes such natural majesty accessible with a menu of activities that includes hiking, biking, campfires and stargazing.

While other Auburn, Alabama hotels might offer a dip in the pool or a round of golf, none can boast the full lineup of recreational opportunities available on Camp Soaring Summer's itinerary. Visitors, for example, can take advantage of the camp's instructional programs (available for a nominal fee) like tennis lessons and water aerobics, all while indulging in the hotel's updated amenities. The waterslide and splash pad at the pool are both recent additions, while the new tennis facility features no fewer than eight clay courts and four pickleball courts. And few if any hotels in Auburn offer their guests the experience of seeing wild birds of prey, which, thanks to the property's partnership with Auburn University's Raptor Program, is a weekly occurrence here.

Other features like live music, golf and that quintessential outdoor experience -- campfires -- are all part and parcel of the camp. And with most offerings available for free and without advance reservations, Camp Soaring Summer is not only one of the most enticing but also one of the most carefree Auburn, Alabama hotel packages available this summer.

Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...
