June 2023 Issue

Art & Culture

With summer rounding into form and travelers searching for entertaining vacation ideas, the June edition of Leisure Group Travel is a perfect reference guide.

Our arts and culture issue spotlights some of the finest artistic destinations in the country including several districts in California that highlight the creativity and beauty of the state’s culture. Out East, LGT focuses on New Jersey’s heralded arts scene, which ranges from sculptures and classic art to street art and murals.

Are you a fan of the hit shows Yellowstone, Ted Lasso, or the White Lotus? If so, this issue is for you as we do a deep dive on the destinations where these, and a slew of other popular shows, are filmed. Pay a visit to these famous destinations and you’ll feel like you are a part of the story. Also in this issue is the annual Iowa Tour Guide, which shows off the Hawkeye State’s many great attractions, and our new product: Destination EXP, which takes you on a journey of exploration through the exciting world of visitor experiences.

It’s time to be whisked away into a world of arts and culture. Enjoy.

Happy reading,

Jason Paha – Chief Editor
