Groupon, the original travel deal site, offers dozens of travel specials each week, with savings often exceeding 50 percent. This week, the offers range from family fun in Niagara Falls to golf to an equestrian getaway in central Oregon.  Groupon is now offering a variety of closing dates, not just the traditional Tuesday at 11:59 PM.  Because of that, we’re going to start listing the closing time with each deal. Keep in mind, these escapes are becoming more and more popular. Some of this week’s offers are already sold out. If you see something you like, be sure to act quickly.
