As the new year kicks off, it is a great time to reflect on the year past.  Through all the challenges faced on all fronts, our community came together to provide and share some of the most unique and innovative experiences that we were able to experience in a safe manner.

Here is a round-up of some of the best experiences 2020 had to offer as well as some of the innovative and creative ways we made memories over the last year!
