travel42 Best Of: Top 10 wellness retreats

Category: Best Of | HotelsMegan Leader @ 08:46

Wellness and travel are a wonderful match because they're both aspirational: When we envision our best selves, we see ourselves as healthy, fit, educated and well-traveled. In a way, wellness travel gives us more bang for our buck because we're enjoying meaningful life experiences, gaining fresh perspectives and nourishing our bodies along the way.

Wellness travel has been booming in the past few years, and this is a trend that's not going away anytime soon. As travelers become more and more conscious of their health and activity, it's becoming more common for them to seek out places of relaxed rejuvenation. A few years ago, a beach trip to Nicaragua without TV or Wi-Fi might have sounded too quiet—even boring, but today it's a perfect respite from the noise and constant activity, a chance to focus in on yourself and reset your habits. These 10 wellness resorts are wonderful places to get away, be still, and rejuvenate your body and mind.

Sloshing through the Sunshine State

My sister, who lives in Dunedin, Florida, near Tampa, is feeling a bit waterlogged after being drenched by tropical storm Debby for the past couple of days.

Florida, Florida, Florida: More than just for election scandals and theme parks

Category: Destinations | ItinerariesJanet @ 05:52

Today, we continue our tour of travel through America as presidential primaries roll through the country. People who know me will assume that in my post about Tuesday’s primary election in Florida that today’s topic will center around one of my favorite destinations in the middle of the state or the views from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale or the Port of Miami.
