With pristine beaches, breathtaking natural beauty, world-class resorts, great independent dining and shopping options and more Amelia Island is the perfect game day home base for players and fans of the TaxSlayer Bowl. (It's just 40 minutes from the stadium.) This year, the Iowa Hawkeyes team is staying at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation in preparation for the big game and will be practicing on the Fernandina Beach High School fields. The Tennessee Volunteers are known for their enthusiasm for a good road trip, and will be receiving a warm Amelia Island welcome as well.   Want to go?  One way is to enter our contest to win two tickets to the TaxSlayer Bowl, accommodations at Omni Amelia Island Plantation, two passes to the TaxSlayer Bowl Touchdown Party, and a $500 travel voucher (in the form of an American Express or Visa gift card). To enter,  visit taxslayerbowlgetaway.com. Plus properties around the island are offering special deals for the weekend.
