How To Travel This Fall
Forget summer vacation. The best time to travel is fall – if you do it right! The Washington Post has gathered a comprehensive list of the do’s and don’ts of fall travel. Don’t be a bad tourist and damage beautiful spots in pursuit of the perfect social media post. “I’m very confident that social media is having an impact on some of the bad behavior,” says Rick Hoeninghausen, director of sales and marketing for Yellowstone National Park Lodges and who’s lived in the area for more than 28 years. “They want to show on social media that they’ve just done something that they think is cool.”
Back in the 1990s, there were just a few million vegans worldwide. Today, that number is approaching a billion. And much of this growing population wants to be catered to during their vacations. Vegan food tours are a hot trend in the travel world. “I’ve been watching vegan tours start to pop up all over the world, and it’s exciting to see this demand start to be met,” Diana Edelman, who launched the Vegans, Baby Las Vegas food tour in 2018, told Travel + Leisure. “I get emails all of the time for more dates for my tours, so it’s really encouraging in terms of what vegan tour operators can expect in the coming years.”
Another culinary trend to keep an eye on – cocktails! Oh, right, cocktails have been trendy forever. But now, alcohol-free cocktails are rising in popularity. The New Yorker checked in with Will Peet, head bartender at NYC’s Robuchon to get into the mix. “At this point, it is absolutely a requisite to have a part of your program that is no proof, or, at the very least, low proof,” Peet reports. With sobriety and wellness on the rise (and alcohol sales declining), it’s a great way to attract a wider audience to your establishment. Who’s ready for a NOgroni (a booze-free negroni)?
Sleeping Through Your Vacation
You want to be as wide awake as you can be during your travels. Ironically, this means getting a lot of sleep. But some of us struggle with sleep when we’re away from home. Thankfully, the New York Times has rounded up some of the best items that will help you get to dreamland while you’re on the road. Are you a white-noise fan?
