To participate in this sweepstakes, you must:
- Be a legal resident of the 48 contiguous United States and the District of Columbia
- Be of legal age of majority in your state or district of residence and at least 18 years of age as of the date of entry, as this sweepstakes is void in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, all other territories and possessions of the United States, and elsewhere as prohibited by law — and this same requirement applies to the travel companion
