One South Carolina destination is giving travelers a chance to get on camera and get paid for it - well, at least win a free vacation.
Midnight Wednesday is the deadline for entries for Charleston's popular Rediscover the Family Vacation.
All that's needed is a video - three minutes or shorter - explaining why contestants love Charleston.
Five theme vacations are being awarded by the local visitors bureau, including what's being called an Urban Fork Safari - dinners at some of the city's best restaurants - and a Heritage and Hits vacation where winners get to visit historic sites and see a RiverDogs minor league baseball game.
Winners last year included families from as far away as Rochester, N.Y. and Bedford, Pa.
