You Can Now Sleep in Lucy the Elephant at the Jersey Shore
What? Yes, it's true. Lucy the Elephant is on Airbnb.
For $138 / night you can stay in the famous elephant.
From the AIRBNB ad:
A little bit about Lucy the Elephant; I’m Lucy, a 138-year-old wooden elephant who calls the Jersey Shore home. I take pride in being one of the last of my kind, with tourists still flocking to see me every year, delighting young and old generations alike. I am older than the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
You’ll be transported back in time to the 1800s, where you will feel the Victorian Era come alive.
Located in the heart of the Jersey Shore, just five miles from world famous Atlantic City, I stand “Jersey strong” at six stories high.
And after taking in a beautiful view of my favorite neighbor, the shoreline, you can try your hand at a game of chess while enjoying a refreshment from the stocked bar cart. There might even be some other local goodies thrown in while you’re here.
From the Lucy the Elephant Facebook Page:
If you're one of the lucky few that can possibly rent the elephant for a night, please let me know. What a memory you'd be making for you and your family.
