This week's question: What are your favorite vacation destinations?
Tammy Whitworth, Chair and CEO, Window World
I like the mountains. Blowing Rock, North Carolina is close to home, and for a weekend destination I really enjoy that. As far as beach vacations, we recently took a trip to Turks and Caicos and really enjoyed that. I especially like the British Virgin Islands. Sailing around those crystal blue waters is certainly a treat. But if I had to choose between the mountains or the beach, I would take the mountains every single time. Read the full profile here.

Bermuda. My wife and I were married in Bermuda, and we've taken our son there for our 5-, 10-, and 15-year anniversaries. In fact, on our first date, my wife asked about my favorite place. I answered Bermuda. I'd been there twice before. She cruised there often as a nurse with Royal Caribbean, and after living there one summer between cruise contracts it was hers as well. This year, we're planning a family vacation to Italy - our son's choice. Read the full profile here.
