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.

Museums in Italy

While there are about as many museums in Italy as pieces of art, there are more than a few you should add to your must-see list ahead of your next (or first!) trip. Work your way through the country’s rich history in the arts with this list of suggestions.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

LGBTQ+: Zagreb, Croatia

Croatia’s capital city boasts a bustling culture that features beautiful cafés lining every street, excellent shopping opportunities, great museums and some truly incredible architecture. The city of Zagreb is steeped in medieval history and was a Communist stronghold for much of its existence. While it certainly came a long way, it still remains a socially conservative place.
