Tips / Travel

Studies show even just a short walk can result in increased creativity. If you’re in a creative slump, here are some walkable destinations sure to get your creative juices flowing and put you in touch with your inner muse.

Camelback Mountain

Head to just outside Phoenix, Ariz., for warm-weather hikes and inspiring sandstone formations, alongside ancient caves. Choose from peaceful strolls or blood-pumping, challenging hikes. For a real activity-packed stay, book the Hike-Tech experience at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa, which includes a two-person, two-night stay with a guided hike, Go Pro Hero Session to use and keep and spa treatments.

The Emerald Isle
If your idea of inspiring strolls includes a little less sweat, maybe opt for a trip to Ireland. Explore the Irish culture and history with guided walks through Galway and self-guided exploratory strolls through the Aran Islands, Kindle and Blarney, offered by CIE Tours International.

Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.

For a luxurious stay on the East Coast, head to Martha’s Vineyard and walk along the picturesque shores, dotted with lighthouses and sailboats, or, move further inward and get lost among the wildlife sanctuaries, preserves, woodlands, ponds and salt marshes.

Concord, N.C.

You don’t have to escape to a small town or rural retreat to enjoy a relaxing walk. An urban setting can do just the same. Outside easily accessible Charlotte, N.C., try the self-guided walking tours provided by Concord’s Historic District, and take in the Queen Anne and Colonial Revival homes, tree-lined streets, historic former courthouse and rotating artwork.
