An East Coast Bleisure Travel Guide & Infographic

Posted by Wendy Sheats on May 4, 2016

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.

So, for any bleisure travelers who find themselves in these cities, download our Guide to East Coast Bleisure Travel for hotels, restaurants and activities that will inject a true leisure twist into business travel.
