What Destination is on Top of Your List for Your Next Vacation?

It’s late winter and people are beginning to think about and plan for summer – including vacations! Just the mention of the word ‘vacation’ evokes full-color recollections and unforgettable feelings that instantly transport you back to that memorable moment in the past. A heightened sense of anticipation begins to rise as new possibilities for destinations are sought out for this year by the mind’s eye…. Rugged camping? Luxurious cruise? Living history? Oceanfront? International travel? I bet if I were to do a survey, at least half of our readers would mention one place as a standout more than all others – Disney!
