Our August Issue Urges You to Get Outside!

Whether you are looking for a challenging or leisurely adventure, domestic or international, if you are aiming to get your group outdoors, we have you covered.

August 2019 Issue

Outdoor & Adventure

Adventure-seekers will love the August issue of Leisure Group Travel as we embark on a myriad of outdoor excursions across the country and even make a pit stop in Italy. We hop on motorcycles and savor spectacular views in the Dakotas, Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota and we head West to Idaho, home of snow-dusted mountain ranges and glacier-carved lakes.

LGT also explores North Carolina, where we enjoy an up-close view of the state’s many waterfalls, pay a visit to the beautiful Carolina coast and, of course, eat delicious barbecue and drop in on auto racing museums. Add to the mix an outdoor adventure guide and an exclusive feature about the trends involving adventure travel and you have a high-octane magazine that will get your blood pumping.
