John “Jake” Jacobi ’68 M’70

My favorite summer destination is the French Polynesian islands of Tahiti, and Bora-Bora. I have sailed there several times and absolutely love the spectacular scenery, crystal clear water, beautiful coral reefs, wonderful culture, and friendly local people. It should be on everybody's bucket list!

Nelvin Lai ’01

Cuba. Love, love, love this country. Went there before the shut down. Aside the politics, people are friendly and helpful. Beaches are very scenic, clean and beautiful. Lots of classic cars and history. People are poor, but very happy living with what they have.

Terry Lawton, Ph.D. ’69

Sedona, Arizona at Red Rock Crossing. This is one of the “Vortex” sites in Sedona and is a special place to meditate or simply enjoy the peace and beauty of our world.  My appreciation for the outdoors was developed from many work weekends with Helen Brown and Marilyn Storck at Stony Acres.

Nancy Boyer ’20

Cape May, N.J.

Linda Cheney ’74

Three shots of me and my hubby on the Amalfi Coast! Enjoy your summer!

Thomas Heslin ’71

Myrtle Beach, S.C., in May and Wildwood Crest, N.J., in September.

Ed Harris ’07

We love to vacation in Florida. This was our daughter’s first trip to Disney.

Bob Callard ’92

Best summer ever, Seattle, Washington.  Everyone thinks it rains all year in Seattle, but it doesn't. The summers are essentially a drought.

Pamela (Francis) Wilson ’73

My favorite vacation spots are anywhere along the beautiful rocky coast of Maine. There are so many great beaches (if you don’t mind water temps in the 60s, lobster shacks, islands, lighthouses and parks (including breathtaking Acadia National Park).  You can’t beat the Pine Tree State for a picturesque and memorable vacation!

Robert Kenter ’88

May 17, 2019: Somewhere between Ventry and Coumeenoole on the Dingle Peninsula of Ireland. Words can't describe the beauty of Ireland's West Coast, especially when you're hiking

Laura & Brian Focht ’94

We went to Clearwater Beach this year.  The sunsets were beautiful and white sand beaches were outstanding. 

Amanda Vojta ’18

My family and I, and my boyfriend, who also graduated from ESU in 2018 went on vacation to Arizona and visited Sedona, Antelope Canyon, Grand Canyon, and Horseshoe Bend. I highly recommend. If you are looking for a beautiful scenic trip, go to Arizona!

Danielle Simcic ’12

I was traveling to Chicago to visit a friend from grad school (Rowan University).  I love traveling to new places, domestic and abroad, to explore new cultures, local cuisine, and to just get out of my comfort zone. My favorite part of my Chicago trip was a tourist stop at Lou Malnati's Pizzeria where I tried deep dish pizza for the first time! It was delicious, but (and I'm hoping the Warriors have my back on this one), it definitely was not like Goomba's Pizza on Main Street.

Tina Lazar

My favorite place to visit was Greece. It was beautiful and the people were wonderful and warm. Food was great and the beaches were fantastic!

Jen Totten ’99

Cocoa Beach, Fla., is our favorite vacation spot. You can't beat the beaches, and my Grandpa lives right nearby! Now, my parents and aunt live down there, too, so we need another excuse to go visit!

Jessica Schultz ’16

Wrightsville Beach, N.C., has been my favorite place to go on vacation for several years now. One of my favorite reasons why I love vacationing at one of the few (and very beautiful!) Wilmington beaches, is because of the clear and turquoise waters. I enjoy going to the sandbar to relax for the day with my family and friends that live nearby. There is so much to do in Historic Downtown Wilmington, it’s hard to be bored on vacation!

R. Griggs Levy ’87

At our residence in Chester County at the Levy pool. Our favorite place is the Bahamas. The summer is heating up!

Christina Lynn Novak ’04 M.Ed. ’09

My kids love going to Dorney Park. It’s definitely our go-to for the summer! We always have a blast!

Brenda Brodt ‘81

My daughter, Lauren Brodt ’14, and I were on Long Beach Island, N.J., the weekend of May 17. I’ve been going there for over 50 years. My aunt had a home there. So many fun times, memories and family connections. My late husband, Darwin Brodt ’78, loved to relax on this quiet island and enjoy delicious seafood. We will be returning in July and hopefully many more times.
