I think it's a great idea to try to package with a restaurant near you. We have a B&B here that actually has a restaurant that now serves dinner. If I was the owner, I would offer my guests a package that included a discount to my own restaurant. It is not cheap and right now they don't have many of their guests eating there other then for breakfast, which is included in their stay. Their rooms start at $175/night.I'm just churning ideas but for example a friend of mine has a small cafe near by us and I was thinking of asking her for say to do 5% off for our customers if they show one of our coupons (they do fab home baked cakes fresh every day and other beautiful things) and I am friends with a jewlery shop same thing and various hairdressers and beauty therapy places as a place to start. As regards attractions I know a chap who does outdoor activities and stuff hadn't thought of him but could be a welcome addition as an activity. Was thinking of working with him to put together a package ie stay with me and do rope climing and team building during the day etc. I agree with copperhead and would try to work with places that are owner operated so less likely to have problems with recognising coupons and new staff etc..
I think that people are looking for value for their $$$, no matter where a place is located. Just my 2 cents....
