Our August 2020 Issue Embraces the Great Outdoors

Whatever your outdoor adventure of choice is, Leisure Group Travel has you covered this August.

August 2020 Issue

Adventure Travel

​Lovers of the great outdoors (and those seeking to stretch their legs after sheltering from Covid-19) will cherish the August issue of Leisure Group Travel as we embark on a variety of outdoor adventures across the country and even make stops in both Mexico and Canada.

LGT explores 10 national parks that offer wide-open spaces for social distancing along with incredible views. We also take a biking excursion across the East Coast, showing you the best pathways to get out and get active. LGT even partakes in soft adventure travel in the South, where we show you the best places to parasail, ride horses, canoe and kayak.

Those seeking a more relaxing sojourn will appreciate our Idaho feature, where we visit the best wineries in Idaho. We also sample fresh fruit and cuddle with baby goats in North Carolina, which is as great as it sounds.
