(2) Pet Electrolyte Therapy: VALUE – $1,571

How does a 5-night stay in a two-bedroom villa in Kauai sound? Or a 2,500 square-foot suite in Mexico? A two-day ride on an overnight Rocky Mountaineer train through Western Canada, or a $15,000 walking tour of Japan? That’s what nominees will be walking away with this year.
