  2. Def the beach! I love sitting there with my feet in the sand and a cold drink at hand. Closing my eyes feeling the sun on my face with a slow breeze blowing. To me that is luxury!

  3. Guess I'm a big kid at heart. Been to Disney about 5 times, Universal 3 and Florida including the Keys and Everglades about 12 times. Atlantic Coast and Gulf Coast. My very 1st trip was in high school without parents. Our Band played in the noon parade on Main Street Disney World. Got a tour of "Underground Disney" - a whole city in itself. Stuck in a Hurricane on Key West with parents couple years later. Evacuated from New Smyrna Beach (Between Daytona and Cocoa Beaches) on Atlantic for a hurricane coming on my last trip. And one of my biggest memories was watching an Apollo launch right on the launch pad in the press box because my dad was on the team that built the guidance systems that navigate Apollo. I LOVE FLORIDA.

  4. You are quite welcome.

  5. I've been to Orlando once, Disney etc. Lots of stuff to do there. I would like to do a cruise maybe.. never done that. It's gonna be tough to decide what to do lot's of options.

  6. Thank you, that a really nice vacation wow. Yippy! Doing the I'm going on a vacation dance. lol

  7. I love going to Las Vegas. I take my mother who has family there and doesn't travel alone. However, when my kids were growing up we LOVED Orlando, Disney, Universal - we loved staying at the Disney World Resorts. My dream is to take the grandkids there.

  8. Congratulations. Enjoy.

  9. I got an email today that said I won the Spring Into Your Dream Vacation sweepstakes for 3,500. I'm in shock. I've never won anything before.

  10. Hawaii, Alaska or San Diego what time is the flight?

  11. I would love to go to Hawaii. It looks so beautiful.

  12. I have always wanted to go to Hawaii. My husband went there when he was in the navy,that's been over 30 yrs. It would be nice to go now that he has retired.

  13. If we could win a gift trip I think I'd want to go back to Las Vegas.

  14. My whole life I have wanted to go to Hawaii. I wanted to see black sand beaches, a volcano, learn to surf, and see the history of Pearl Harbor. I also think that macadamia nuts are the most amazing food in the world. I would love a hotel with a beach front and childrens programs for kids 10-16. I would would want to enjoy a crazy food crawl with my husband. I would like to see a real pineapple farm. I would want to see a secluded waterfall and make out with my husband like we were in high school again over a picnick of sushi, or some thing only the locals know about thats out of this world and I dream about it later
