bleisure travel

Approximately 10% of American workers travel for business. While this may seem like an insignificant number, that totals about 20 to 30 million people making frequent trips across the country, and even the globe, every year.

With many business trips taking everyday people to locations like Las Vegas, Boston, or San Diego (and perhaps international destinations like Berlin or Rome), it’s no wonder why some choose to spend some time actually seeing the destination they’re in, instead of attending a few meetings then flying straight home.
