We attended a wedding here in April and the venue was stunning. It offered beautiful bay views and was decked out beautifully.

Tuition for IMG is crazy, everything is overpriced but when it comes to sports there is no match. To go here you have to decide whether or not sports are your first priority. If they are then this is the place for you.

Hi, My son is 10 and has been playing tennis since he was 4 years old. But we have always felt the training facilities and opportunities in India are extremely limited and are looking for him to gain more technical support and exposure in tennis.could anyone please share their experiences of sending their child for one of their 3 week summer camp programs? thank you in advance! radica.

Our 14 yo son has been offered a spot to go to school there and play baseball. We are very academic oriented and live in a great school system. Very reluctant to go to a school that is SO expensive without knowing if the AP and Honors track is competitive and important. Going to class just a few hours a day seems to me to make it hard to learn, even with the mandatory study hour at night. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
