Our April 2020 Issue Gets In The Holiday Spirit

Holiday Travel and Live Entertainment take center stage through our itineraries, features and annual Guide to Live Theater

April 2020 Issue

Holiday Travel

While the holiday season remains a long way away, this month’s edition of Leisure Group Travel is already focused on those festive times. We take an in-depth look at how more destinations are creating and promoting holiday events and how more options are available for groups looking to get away.

We also explore Christmas cruises in Europe, taking us on a Danube River journey that showcases holiday markets in Germany, Austria and Hungary. LGT also investigates how multigenerational travel continues to boom as a travel trend, bringing families closer together. LGT even dares to take Mystery Tours in South Dakota, Iowa and Austin, discovers the history of Central Louisiana and does a deep dive on the Old Dominion State with the Virginia Group Tour Guide.
