The city tourism board's gay-and-lesbian-friendly marketing campaign has reeled in a whopper: Rosie O'Donnell's travel company has picked Philadelphia for its first weekend getaway in a U.S. metropolis.
The R Family Philly Weekend is set for March 10th-11th. The package includes lodging at the Hyatt Regency Philadelphia at Penn's Landing, lunch at the National Constitutional Center, a 50's-themed bowling party and Broadway-style brunch.
Special guests are to include George Washington, Ben Franklin and Betsy Ross, according to the release. The city appears to be pulling out all the stops.
R Family Vacations has made a name for its gay-and-lesbian family sea cruises. Co-founder Kelli O'Donnell (pictured with Rosie) said in the release, "A trip to Philadelphia is a great way to inspire your family to affect the future by learning the historical significant of our Constitution."
