I've spent the last eight months traveling, most of that time spent in bigger cities where it's easy to find all the action—art, dining, entertainment, culture, etc. National parks, while on the bucket list, had always been a distant afterthought.
It's no secret that travelers are becoming increasingly environmentally conscious in their daily lives and while on the road. They want their travel experiences to not only be fun and memorable, but meaningful and authentic, as well. More than ever, travelers are concerned about the lasting impact made on the destinations they visit.
Perhaps your preferred drink is barrel aged and served straight up. Or, maybe it's something off the vine enjoyed in a stemmed glass. Your favorite food? It could be coastal fare, a classic dish or something with destination-specific flare. Whatever your taste, culinary delights and libations across the country abound and are waiting to be discovered. So raise a glass and grab a taste of these destinations full of unforgettable fizz and fresh eats!
With an increased focus on sustainability in the travel industry and beyond, it's becoming increasingly expected that businesses and people take the necessary steps to be environmentally conscious as they go about their daily lives and take in the splendor of nature.
