What comes to mind when you think of hidden gems?
We all have that favorite place to eat in our hometown or the secret park we like to visit on the weekends, but finding similar places in bigger cities can be hard especially when you are only there for a short time.
Below are some hidden gems that are definitely worth checking out on your next trip to the following popular cities:
- Atlanta, GA
- Boston, MA
- New Orleans, LA
- New York, NY
- Orlando, FL
- Washington, D.C.
Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod and Nantucket are three of the most popular getaways in the northeastern United States. Much of their attraction stems from the fact that even today, they offer a relaxed, laid-back experience; and for those who love staying on the move during a vacation, all three places offer incredible outdoor opportunities such as beaches and biking.
BUSINESS + LEISURE = BLEISURE
Bleisure combines the words "business" and "leisure," and bleisure travel occurs when people traveling for work take personal days before, during and/or after work for leisurely, non-business travel. Sometimes, these folks take their families along, but solo travelers have plenty of fun, too.
Bleisure travel is an excellent idea regardless of whether a traveler has previously been to a certain location. Cities change, and there are always new things to do and see. The East Coast of the United States is one place that teems with opportunity for bleisure travelers; in fact, two of the top five domestic travel destinations, New York City and Philadelphia, are on the East Coast, according to an American Express Global Business Travel report. Readers of Conde Nast Traveler also add Washington, D.C., Boston and New Orleans to the list of popular business travel destinations. Meanwhile, Cvent recommends Orlando and Atlanta, particularly for conventions and meetings.
