Our April 2021 Issue Gets In The Holiday Spirit

​The April edition of Leisure Group Travel delves into our country’s colorful history and heritage

April 2021 Issue

Holiday Travel

In this edition we trace America’s history through its multitude of forts, which take us from St. Augustine, Florida to San Antonio, Texas. LGT also spotlights six old Western prisons you can visit (if your record is clean).

LGT even takes a walk on the dark side as we investigate dark tourism locales that prove bad historic events are fertile elements for good itineraries. With Halloween a scant six months away, LGT gets into the All Hallows’ Eve spirit as we visit the Northeast and discover the best places to celebrate this spooky holiday. Equally festive, but considerably brighter, is the Louisiana Holiday Trail of Lights, which features lighted displays, walking tours and Cajun and Creole culinary experiences.

Last but certainly not least, the 2021 Virginia Group Tour Guide showcases the Old Dominion State’s many offerings including its festive downtowns, great outdoor gathering and birdwatching spots and its untold stories of Black history.
