Goodyear Lists Iconic Blimp On Airbnb For Three Nights
By Bill Galluccio

The Goodyear blimp has been a staple at sporting events since 1955, hovering overhead, providing aerial coverage for all the fans watching at home on TV. The iconic blimp will be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame later this year, making it the first non-player or coach ever to receive the honor. To celebrate, Goodyear is giving fans a chance to spend the night inside the blimp and is offering three separate one-night stays on Airbnb for $150 per night. The rooms are available from October 22-24.
Goodyear managed to fit a bed, a table and chairs, and a dresser inside the blimp. Outside you will have your own area to tailgate that includes a grill, fire pit, and everything you need to play cornhole.
Unfortunately, you won't get a chance to fly in the blimp. It will be parked in a hangar in Mogadore, Ohio, during the stay, but there will be plenty to do. In addition to getting to spend the night in the blimp, guests will also be given tickets to the rivalry game between Michigan and Notre Dame on October 26.
Reservations will open up on October 15, so if you are quick enough, you might be one of the lucky guests who get a chance to spend the night inside the Goodyear blimp.
