Bringing back fond memories of most exciting, fun vacations

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

Strolling along Calhoun Street in Bluffton on a recent Sunday, we asked: “What was the best vacation you’ve ever taken?”

Brian Adach, Modena, N.Y.: “Hilton Head Island, actually. I came for my first visit with my parents when I was 8. Now, I’m bringing my own kids. It’s a family tradition.”












Allison Dubois-Adach, Modena, N.Y.: “The most exciting vacation was through Italy – seven days and three cities. It was my first trip abroad, I was with girlfriends, and we had lots of fun.”












Morgan Crutchley, Bluffton: “Antigua Guatamala. It was easy to get to, great food, and no Americans.”











Tammy Blanchard, Bethpage, Tenn.: “Hilton Head Island, for some quality family time at the beach. It’s a girl cousins’ meet-up.”












Rose Cofield, Bluffton: “Carrera, Italy – I went there for a stone-carving workshop. We also went to Florence. The architecture was awesome.”
