We all remember a year ago when the Gulf Coast experienced the worst oil spill to date, ruining travel and vacation plans of many and devastating an area that relies heavily on tourism for its primary source of income.
BP did all that it could to help those who were affected by the spill by providing them jobs in the interim. Now that the spill has been cleaned up, beaches are preparing for the summer travel season and are ready to make a comeback.
Many of the more popular hotels have already announced sold out status during several key weekends, and are nearing capacity for the remainder of the season.
In an effort to guarantee business, some places are offering special pricing to help boost sales and let the world know that they are ready to put the spill behind them and look to the future.
