What we're about

Have you ever wanted to explore a faraway place or some exotic locale while being able to share that experience with fun and interesting people? Have you ever wanted to travel somewhere but didn't have someone to travel with? Friends don't have the money or vacation time?

Well, look no further! Whether you are single, solo, or a couple looking to find new friends to explore the world with, we will bring you together on vacation so that you never have to travel solo again! We seek to have "a week of travel, a lifetime of friendships".

In addition to travel, we will get together locally to explore the area in which we live. Our area provides rich historical attractions, top rated restaurants, globally recognized wineries, unique cultural experiences, and so much more.

Please look at this discussion from our Message Board for more information about our group.
