Home of the Liberty Bell and tasty cheesesteaks, The City of Brotherly Love’s tourism officials on Thursday debuted a new personality quiz on Facebook that is designed to help LGBT visitors figure out which Philadelphia neighborhood best suits them as well as give them a chance to win a weekend stay in Philadelphia, including tickets to a Lady Gaga concert.
A part of the groundbreaking Philadelphia – Get Your History Straight and Your Nightlife Gay campaign, the fun online quiz asks questions about participant’s dining, shopping and nightlife preferences and then determines which of five Philly neighborhoods—the Gayborhood, Old City, Rittenhouse Square/Benjamin Franklin Parkway, East Passyunk and New Hope—meshes best with their mood.
Those who complete the personality quiz between now and November 13 will be entered for a chance to win a weekend stay in Philadelphia, which includes:
A pair of premium tickets to Lady Gaga’s show at the Wells Fargo Center on February 19, 2013
A $100 giftcard for a meal at Valanni, located in Philadelphia’s Gayborhood
Overnight accommodations at the brand new Hotel Monaco Philadelphia
To take the quiz and enter the sweepstakes, participants must “like” facebook.com/visitgayphilly. Participants may take the quiz as many times as they like, but they’re permitted just one contest entry throughout the duration of the sweepstakes.
According to expert LGBT research company Community Marketing, Inc., Philadelphia is one of the top destinations in the U.S. for gay travelers.
Travel Note: Amtrak, which actively welcomes LGBT travelers, offers daily service between Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia.
