when i was growing up the 2nd week in August was always vacation. it was the only week my attorney father would take off - because that was the week the courts were closed. so off we went and although the destination may have changed the accommodations never did.
we stayed at Howard Johnson's.
i love these old advertisements.
not only did we stay at HoJo's when we traveled but, there was a location about 30 minutes from home and it was a favorite dining spot of dad's. yum for HoJo burgers!
i have a Pinterest board devoted to HoJo.
there wasn't anything that the didn't have their logo on. they sold ice cream, chewing gum, toys, games - below is a piggy bank.they created the marketing we take as commonplace in 2018.
did you ever stay at Howard Johnson's? please share your recollections in the comments.
i know my love of orange and turquoise can be traced back to Howard Johnson! hahaha!
til next time.
