Where is your favorite Summer Vacation Destination? 

I was surprised to see my hometown Omaha, NE coming in at 24. Didn't realize it was a Vacay Hotspot! Baseball College World Series is there in June. Wheatfields has the Best Angel Food Cake Loaf Bread. It's thick & yummy. I highly suggest going if you decide to vacay in Omaha this Summer. I will when I visit family w/ honey Ted!
