A giant elephant has been shared on Airbnb which you can now stay in – it’s the ultimate escape you never knew you needed!
In Jersey Shore, there is Airbnb unlike any other, a 65-foot-tall attraction named Lucy the Elephant which is now available to stay in on the home-sharing site.
The New Jersey-based accommodation has been confirmed by the owners to be live for bookings from 12 pm on 5 March. However, you’re going to have to be pretty quick to put your name down – there’s sure to be a stampede in the line to book this unusual getaway.
Built 138 years ago, Lucy has been a tourist attraction for many years and visitors have come from far and wide to get a glimpse of her – let alone stay in her for the night! The elephant has even been stayed in by former United States President Woodrow Wilson.
In the heart of Jersey Shore, Lucy is just five miles from Atlantic City and is surrounded by plenty of local eateries, casinos and beaches. Despite more modern surroundings, the National Historic Landmark has retained its original features and includes original decor from the Victorian era.
Despite upkeeping this previous century, the room is packed full of activities for you to do if you decide to stay in Lucy for the day – plus there’s a fully stocked bar!
