Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day!

You and two of your friends are in Ireland for St. Patrick's Day. Combined, you have $1700 to spend.

Your task is to plan a day in Ireland celebrating the history of St. Patrick's Day. You can choose the city that you are in (Dublin would be the most popular), then you can research attractions, festivals and/or events that are happening on March 17th. You may choose to stay in one city or you can travel about. Just keep in mind that you only have ONE day and $1700.

You must also take into account your meals for the day and what restaurants you will be eating at.

You will make a powerpoint presentation including all of the information of your one day itinerary. You must also include pictures of what you will be seeing while there.

For each attraction (including restaurants) please include: Name, Picture, Description, Cost and Time

Internet Research Assignment


This assignment will allow you to do three things:  research a city that you have never visited; use most of the components a tourist would use; and check out how another city uses the web to effectively sell itself.


Choose a city in Canada that you have never visited and find its website.  Then answer the following questions:


1.         What mode of transportation might you use to get there? How much will it cost to go there and back? (Consider getting to the airport as well)




2.       Choose a high-end hotel for a 3-night stay.  How much will it cost? What features are available to you at the hotel?




3.       Choose 3 different restaurants to eat in.  Did their websites help you make your

decision?  Why?




4.       Choose 2 attractions to visit and give a brief description of each one.




5.       Find one of the city’s upcoming events and provide a brief description of it.




6.       If you were looking for some outdoor recreation, what is available in or nearby the city that would provide you with exercise?
