Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce

Mobile, Alabama

Trip: Tuscany and the Italian Riviera

Tour Operator: Collette

Date: November 2017

For one week, a group from the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce explored Tuscany and the Italian Riviera with stops in Florence, Genoa, Portofino, Vernazza, Siena, Lucca and Pisa.

“For the food, the sights, the sounds and the wine, Italy is always a trip of choice for Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce travelers. It’s impossible to have a bad day traveling by train, bus or car across the Tuscan countryside, as there is so much beauty at every turn. And there’s nothing better than driving down a mountain, having stayed at a Medici castle in Florence to take in the grandeur of the Duomo.”

— Leigh Perry-Herndon, vice president of communications and marketing

Citizens National Bank

Sevierville, Tennessee

Trip: Coastal Maine

Tour Operator: Chariots of Hire

Date: August 2017

Citizens National Bank’s The Good Life travel program brought 50 senior adults to coastal attractions in Maine, with tours of Kennebunkport, Bar Harbor, Bangor and Acadia National Park.

“The Lobster Shack in Kennebunkport was a delicious Maine lobster dinner. Another highlight was a wonderful sightseeing tour given by Acadia Boat Tours. We stopped in Freeport and visited L.L. Bean and had the best popovers — I had three — at the Jordan Pond House Restaurant in Acadia National Park. It was a fantastic trip and I am already receiving requests to do it again.”

— Sherra Gillespie, assistant vice president of The Good Life
