Trip: Cowboy Country
Tour Operator: Collette
Date: June 2018
Alumni from Jacksonville State University joined the university’s president and first lady to experience a seven-day trip to the American West. The tour focused on the national parks and other cultural sites in South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana.
“Our Gamecock travelers had a wonderful time experiencing the nature of the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone national parks. We ended the trip with a very patriotic night at a lighting of Mount Rushmore. We try to travel once or twice a year out West and welcome anyone who would like to join the fun.”

F&M Bank Regency Club
Vadnais Heights, Minnesota
Trip: Best of Britain
Tour Operator: CIE Tours
Date: June 2017
For 11 days, the Minnesota bank club explored the elegant castles, cultural wonders and historic attractions of Great Britain. The group traveled throughout the country, with stops at the Cotswolds, Cardiff, York, Edinburgh, Liverpool and London.
“I was mesmerized by the wonderful tours of Windsor Castle, Edinburgh Castle, Bamburgh Castle, Gretna Green, Liverpool, Bath, Stonehenge and the Tower of London. After all the sites, the icing on the cake for this trip was the garden party at my parents’ 300-year-old home: the White Cottage. The food was extraordinarily delicious, and to witness the beautiful gardens at their home was an excellent experience.”
— Sue Peacock, client relations officer
