August 2015 Leisure Group Travel

Dominating the August edition of Leisure Group Travel, the Missouri Tour Guide special section abounds with ideas for planning trips in the Show-Me State. Besides feature articles covering historical attractions, wineries, Christmas festivities and St. Louis, highlights of four Missouri sample itineraries and a list of big annual events provide even more inspiration for tour planners.

Memorable Museums, another special section, spotlights 19 favorites throughout the United States. They range from the Milwaukee Museum of Art and Denver Art Museum to the National Corvette Museum and Madame Tussauds Washington D.C.

Readers of the August issue may find themselves drooling over the culinary coverage. The cover story, written by Denverite Vanessa Day, talks about the red-hot dining scene in Denver, which has seen an influx of cutting-edge restaurants in recent years. In Seattle the Mecca for foodies is Pike Place Market, writes Leisure Group Travel managing editor Randy Mink. His Wisconsin article looks at Door County fish boils, State Fair cream puffs and Racine kringle, among other foods and dining experiences distinctive to the Badger State. Internationally, the food and drink of Croatia is featured.

In “Battle of the Belles,” Randy Mink and Associate Editor Lauren Reiniger fight it out over their favorite Ohio River paddlewheeler. Randy took the Belle of Louisville from downtown Louisville, while Lauren traveled on the Belle of Cincinnati from Newport, Kentucky. Lauren’s Southwest Ohio feature tells what to see and do in Cincinnati, her hometown, and vicinity.

Guest contributor James Moses, president and CEO of Road Scholar, discusses trends in educational travel for older adults, including solo female and intergenerational travel. Leisure Group Travel columnist Marty Sarbey de Souto also looks at senior travel, offering tips for planners who cater to that market.
