Monday Madness- Win a Twizzler Prize Pack

Today was a big day in the Earnshaw household. After a whirlwind week in San Antonio, we flew back home last night to get a couple days of rest before our Twizzler Landmark Summer adventure.  Even though we are all still quite tired from traveling, we couldn’t help but pop out of bed early because we were just too excited about what was scheduled to arrive- the Twizzlermobile!

I  can only imagine what my neighbors must be thinking and I can’t wait for all the honks and thumbs up we will be getting on the highway, but mostly, I just can’t wait to get on the road and explore the California coast. After a week in the 100 degree San Antonio heat, those cool ocean breezes and a forecast for 65 degree temperatures sound wonderful.

While the final details of our itinerary have yet to be decided (I still need to make one last search on Trekaroo for some great activity and dining ideas), the stops on our road trips are definite. Our family will be staying at the central California beach towns of Avila Beach and Cambria on our way up and back from San Francisco.  While the coastal route is not the most direct route from Los Angeles to San Francisco, it is definitely the most scenic. I can’t wait to drive along the coast and take in all those sweeping ocean views.

Read all about Trekaroo’s involvement in Twizzlers Landmark Summer.

Since the Twizzlermobile has finally made its way across the country and into my driveway, Trekaroo is going to give away 5 more Twizzler prize packs! I received one of these prize packs for my trip and I think the beach bag and blanket are just too cool. They will definitely be permanent additions to our beach kit.  After you enter this giveaway, be sure to head to the Twizzler site for a chance to win a wide variety of prizes, including a roadtrip to the landmark of your family’s choice!

    Since we are airplane nuts, we’d enjoy a few bags of Twizzlers while watching the jumbo jets landing at SFO!

  2. Michelle

    Ghiradelli Square! I hear you can smell chocolate wherever you walk there and that they have yummy ice cream! Sounds heavenly!

  3. Jenn H

    Alcatraz, so when I threaten my children that the police are going to haul them off to jail if they don’t behave, I’ll just have to mention Alcatraz for some instant behavior modification ; )

  4. Christy

    I live in PA and have never been to the west coast so I’d love to see it all, but I’d have to say the SF Zoo and Alcatraz are at the top of the list.

    i’d love to take the family to visit the golden gate fortune cookie factory in chinatown. i’ve been there as part of a chinatown tour, but would like to go back and spend a little more time – as well as show it to the kids.

  6. April

    Oooo…so many places to choose from! But the top of the list is Golden Gate Park. Such a great place to explore with little ones. 🙂

  7. CJ Gorman

    Sadly I have no desire to go to San Fran. Why is that sad? Because I’m addicted to twizzlers and can’t win now 🙁

  8. Shannon W

    So I can’t pick just one:

    Golden Gate Bridge and Park


    Fisherman’s Wharf!

    They all are places that I want to take the kids – and the zoo’s and science centers. I just want to take them everywhere!

  9. Heather-slofamilylife

    Um, just one place, I can’t do that! If I’m in San Fran, I have to do everything possible. That means, a cruise out to Alcatraz in the morning, followed by a walk around Ghirardelli Square, lunch at Fisherman’s Wharf and then the Exploratorium for an indoor afternoon adventure! 🙂

  10. Your daughter is such a good planker-I thought she was a mannequin or doll at first! I always wanted to see Alcatraz.

    Mine was to be San Francisco Whale Tours Farallon Island Tour a week ago last Sunday. It was to be the highlight of our trip to SF. Unexpected illness took us elsewhere.

  12. Donna

    I would love to take my family to Fisherman’s Wharf! I haven’t been there since I was a teen and went with my cousins – we ate sour dough bread and crab on some steps! The wind was blowing off the pacific! It was a fantastic day!! Great memories!

  13. Carolann

    The location that i would love to bring my family is to see the golden gate bridge. I would do so because its just been a symbol and a sense of beauty. It was also on full house, which my family loves(:

  14. LeAnn V

    San Francisco is one of the cities I’d most like to visit. I’d love to visit Ghiradelli Square and my husband really wants to take a tour of Alcatraz.

  15. Diana Russell

    The most obvious – the Golden Gate Bridge — and The Tanner’s old house from “Full House”

  20. Karen M

    I would love to see the Golden Gate Bridge and walk across it. i don’t know if you can even do that. I guess I’ll have to check that out before planning my San Fran trip. Thanks for the giveaway.

  21. Shad Wanless

    I’m a HUGE 49ER’S Fan! I’d LOVE to go to the stadium and see a game. 🙂 and of course eat som Twizzlers while I’m there.

  22. Stacy

    Actually, the first thing we would do in San Francisco is go to the Hard Rock Cafe. We are members of the Pin Collectors Club and that is one we haven’t been to yet.

  23. Lisa G.

    I would love to take my family to see the Golden Gate Bridge and then my oldest daughter to see China Town because she’s currently obsessed with all things Chinese.

  24. Malou Fischer

    Our family would go wild visiting the San Francisco Zoo but of course wouldn’t dare feed Twizzlers to the animals!

  25. Erika

    I had an internship 9 years ago in Berkeley, so I did a lot of sightseeing in San Francisco, but I would love to visit the Golden Gate Bridge again!

  26. Nick Hilleshiem

    I would love to see the golden gate bridge. I have family in San Fran but I have never been there.

  27. Erika Mischke

    I’m from the Midwest and have never been to California. I would love to go and to have the chance to take my kiddos to see the Golden Gate Bridge. Thank you so much!!
