Top 5 Bleisure Destinations in the United States

‘Bleisure’ is a major travel trend that combines business travel with leisure activities.  Research indicates that up to 75% of business travellers plan to extend their business trips further to enjoy the destination. In fact, they listed the US as one of the most desired countries in the world to do it in.

Here are 5 of the hottest destinations in the US for bleisure:

New York City

It’s no surprise New York tops the list. The city that never sleeps truly has it all; top entertainment and restaurant experiences, major walkability, iconic landmarks and huge cultural diversity.  NYC is a magnet for international tourists and business travellers alike, and offers something for everyone.

Seattle

Seattle has a conveniently tight downtown core with business and entertainment districts right next to one another. So, when you finish your meetings you can hit the Space Needle, art galleries, Pike Place market, or even the very first Starbucks before you call it a day. Cap off your adventure by hiking up Capitol Hill for the most buzz-worthy dining, craft beers and ciders.

Washington D.C.

The nation’s capital is very popular due to the large meetings and conventions held there, as well as endless monuments, memorials and of course, The White House.  America’s front yard offers countless free museums and exhibits (The Smithsonian, for one) as well as diverse cuisine – everything from afternoon tea to Cuban sandwiches to Korean bibim buksu.

Los Angeles

Another extremely diverse city with something for everyone, Los Angeles. LA offers perfect weather and an unparalleled focus on health and wellness.  Rugged canyons, jogging trails and juiceries are at your fingertips – but a greasy burger and a beer are always available too.  Walkability is a lot lower than the other 4 cities on this list. However, the gorgeous beaches, amazing attractions (Disneyland is an hour away), and Hollywood vibe are well worth an extended business trip.

San Francisco

Although it may be the most expensive place to stay on this list (hotels average $350 USD per night), the city has some of the most breathtaking landscapes and landmarks in the US.  The Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf, and much more make it a desirable spot for tourist and business travellers alike.  It is also extremely walkable and jam-packed with culinary delights with the highest restaurant density per capita in the country.

What Our Clients Say

Saving our customers time and money

Creative Resins has been at the forefront of decorative glass technology for over 30 years. When Louise contacted us to help with a trip to Oman, we discovered that the company had been using an airline’s website to book direct, paying in excess of £5,000 per trip in Business Class. Using our negotiated fares on this one flight YourTravel saved over £1000 per trip. Upon further investigation and a year’s great relationship, we delved into the companies travel policies and booking habits. We found that travel was often booked at the last minute and there was no one in authority to keep a watchful eye over what was being booked and where. We then worked with Louise to create passenger profiles for all of Creative Resins travellers including details such as preferred seat numbers, meals and airlines – we also set in place cabin restrictions (who can and can’t travel in an upgraded travel class). We then looked at the company’s calendar for the coming year, estimating when and where they would need to book travel and agreed that Your Travel would be proactive in trying to get confirmed travel dates from 4 weeks prior to the trip dates. This created a stress-free booking system that took budget and organisational pressure from the senior management, knowing they would always be working with a cost-effective travel budget. This lead to a reduced travel spend of just over 16% without cost-cutting and maintaining a high level of service.

‘’Working with Your Travel Corporate has been an enlightening experience, we were wasting money on travel and working with John and the team was very easy indeed. Everything is taken care of on every trip and we get a level of service that just can’t be achieved by the bigger travel agents, being treated as a valued client and not just another customer is fantastic!’’ Louise Bollom, Director
