Women’s Travel Issue

In Leisure Group Travel’s third annual Women’s Travel issue, we shine the spotlight on five travel executives who are making a difference in the travel industry. “Women in Leadership” gives brief glimpses into their business careers and personal lives—and what is on their radar.

Also of interest to female readers is “A Trip to the Spa,” in which Lisa Kasanicky, author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Girlfriend Getaways, gives expert advice on how to plan a group spa vacation. Our Central Region women’s features focus on Chicago as a prime destination for girlfriend trips that combine shopping and sightseeing with dining and nightlife.

Shopping also figures into the October issue’s Mississippi section, which looks at retail hot spots from Oxford to Ocean Springs. In addition, the Mississippi pages spotlight historical sites relating to Civil War and civil rights sites, and “Mouthwatering Mississippi” singles out 10 top restaurants around the state. Southern coverage also includes Alabama and some big celebrations coming up there in 2019. “New in Montgomery” describes a new civil rights museum and memorial.

The 28-page Missouri Tour Guide special section brims with tempting options for group tours. Readers will discover the Missouri Quilt Trail, learn about the new museum at the Gateway Arch and get acquainted with two great natural attractions in Branson. Missouri festivals, aquariums and agritourism opportunities get ink as well.

Rounding out the October issue are “Made in Vermont and New Hampshire” (shopping for locally made products) and “Oklahoma’s Tuneful Trails,” with Istanbul, Turkey the featured international destination.
