  • Disney World. It’s genius, really, turning a childhood into the most well-known theme park in the world. Every three years, the Quincy Senior High music department takes “the Disney trip”. The marching band, orchestra, and concert choir make the eighteen hour drive during Christmas break to Orlando...

  •  “Welcome home,” said the speaker at Independence Hall in Tel Aviv.

We stayed at the Best Western Carolinian Beach Resort. I personally thought the hotel with the suite was really nice and...

  • I had never really traveled, never had any unique experiences other than our usual summer camping trips. But, one day, my mom presented me with an opportunity to go to Costa Rica.
