Book a 2019 bike tour and see the most iconic Western European sites of World War I.
Freewheel Holidays offers a brand-new itinerary, which takes travelers across some of the most interesting and poignant spots in history, over the course of eight days. The brand takes care of all the finer details, so all you have to do is show up, cycle, sightsee and have a great time.
The itinerary is filled with unique experiences the history and war buff can appreciate. In Bruges, see the city’s architecture, recently restored after World War I’s devastation; you can still find medieval remnants, but the ravages of war are un-missable. Cycle past beautiful nature reserves, and picturesque settings once the site of tumultuous battles. Scenery reveals castles and country estates, thick forestry and fascinating cultures. In Menen, visit museums and war cemeteries. In Lijssenthoek, see British field hospitals and unmarked graves.
Of course, non-war and history buffs will have fun, too. There are plenty of stops at spots of cultural significance and more general museums that cater to all tastes. Foodie experiences along the way give travelers a chance to experience some of Belgium’s finest beers and culinary offerings.
Each day, you can expect to cycle about 30 miles. The itinerary departs every Saturday in 2019, June 4–Sept. 21, so you have plenty of time to book. It starts at £789 per person, and the cost includes your hotel stays, bike rentals, breakfasts, route information and more.
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.
Quietly on the rise is the cousin of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, known as cannabidiol, or CBD. THC is the more well-known component of cannabis; however, it is illegal in many states, so CBD has risen in popularity as a legal option. Stores selling CBD continue to pop up in major cities and towns.
Just across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., with some of the most beautiful views of the nation’s capital, Alexandria, Virginia, is one of the most endearing small cities in America.

With increased attention comes an ever-exploding culinary scene and, despite its size, Alexandria already overflows with excellent options. These five will give you the best representation of the city’s diverse scene.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
Picking a destination is perhaps the most important part of planning a trip with your family. If your group includes small children, there are some destinations better suited to your needs than others. Consider these spots for your next trip with the little ones.
