Itching to travel this summer? Not only do we have some suggestions you may not have considered, but these destinations offer more than attractions. We’ve rounded our favorites among the healthiest travel destinations that you will want to add to your travel bucket list!
San Diego – Whether you are hitting up the beach for a surf session or headed to the city’s meditation gardens, you can bet you’ll eat clean and stay fit in this coast California city. Try a bike tour of Balboa Park, explore La Jolla’s beachside caves, or connect with nature at the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve.
Seattle – Because you can have the best of both worlds and it comes in the form of a vacation that includes both beaches and mountains. Hit up Discovery Park at the shores of Puget Sound and then check out these vegan and veggie eats!
Denver – It’s hard to walk a block in Denver without passing something Patagonia, commuters on bikes, suited workers with hiking gear in tow, or an outdoor festival that doesn’t involve something fitness-related. Spend the morning with Yoga on the Rocks, the afternoon hiking in Boulder, and finish your day with Jazz in City Park.
Austin – Everything may be bigger in Texas, but it’s fitter in Austin. Have a go at Stand Up Paddle Boarding in Lady Bird Lake; hike, bike, or swim on the Barton Creek Greenbelt; meet up with Social Ride Austin for a Thursday Night Social Ride; and have an outdoor picnic with sunset views at Mount Bonnell.
Atlanta – Don’t listen to stories about the traffic being your worst nightmare. Travel via the Atlanta Beltline which offers 22 miles of pathways both bike and pedestrian-friendly. Along the way, check out Yoga at Atlantic Station, drop by one of Atlanta’s many farmers’ markets, and delight in some of this southern city’s healthiest fare!
Don’t forget that traveling is more than the destination – bring a healthy snack for the ride!
