The August cover story explores the glories of Alaska that can be experienced only on land tours. Motorcoach tours, unlike cruise vacations, offer an up-close and personal view that gives group travelers a chance to eyeball wildlife and meet the locals.
Our Adventures in Arkansas feature provides ideas for active groups interested in more than sightseeing. Activities range from caving and kayaking to zip lines and mountain biking. Adventure travel is also the subject of two columns by experts. A girlfriend getaways guru, meanwhile, sheds light on the women-only travel phenomenon with some general advice for tour planners and specific ideas for female escapes in the West.
Gaming is another theme in the August issue. For the latest on glitzy gambling parlors where group travelers can strike it rich, see the articles on Pennsylvania and Midwest casino developments.
And don’t miss our On the Record column, where Leisure Group Travel readers share their techniques for promoting group camaraderie in response to the question “How do you get a busload of strangers to mix and socialize?”
