Altoona for the weekend

It was June last year when I had just broken up with my fiancee. My friends decided I needed a mini vacay to get my mindset right. The nearest city was Altoona. We decided to visit Altoona for the weekend. The ticket for Altoona was acquired from SPIRIT airlines. They had ticket discounts for group purchases. My four friends and I all got the air ticket, packed light and flew to Altoona. We were to stay in Comfort Suites in Altoona for three days. On arrival since it was a really short flight we started by popping champagne before taking a tour through several tourist attractions in Altoona. We visited the Horseshoe national historic national Park while in Altoona which was quite the experience although we got scared when it got dark and there were no proper lighting. The rest of our stay was filled with loads of champange and laughter, Altoona was quite the trip. We got the ticket back from the same airline to get the ticket discounts as before.
