From fresh air, sunshine and healthy food to hiking trails and bikeable roads, these seven U.S. cities are the ultimate wellness destinations.

Trends / Food & Drink

Spending months at the gym to have your body in tip-top shape for vacation shouldn’t come crashing down the moment you arrive at your destination. Thinking calories do not matter when traveling is a sure way to ruin all the hard-earned work put in to achieve those defined abs of steel. Having more information on ways to eat healthy, many travelers opt to keep their diets on track while away.

Travelers are sampling local cuisine in smarter ways that allow them to eat the delicious plates without feeling guilty. A new trend that seems to keep foodies happy is to order a fresh and healthy salad first and then only choosing a couple entrees to share with the table. Having just enough bites of the more calorie-dense meals, this way of dining does not leave you wondering what the local foods taste like.

Staying healthy is not just all about what foods are consumed. Engaging in physical activity is important to keep the body burning excess calories. Travelers stay active by walking or biking to destinations instead of taking buses or taxis if their target location is in reasonable distance to do so. This movement also saved travelers the money they would have spent on fares to put toward other expenses on their trips.
