SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/13 -- The list for great American festivals to catch this year may be surprising. On the docket? Running with the bulls -- in Cave Creek, AZ. With a purse worth $10,000, it just may overtake Pamplona in popularity. Also in the offing? A cheeseburger fest in Caseville, Mich; a lentil celebration in Pullman, WA; a Cat Video hullabaloo in St. Paul, Minn., and a big Bugfest in Raleigh, N.C.
These are just some of the places attracting the attention of Americans this summer as they head out for vacation, according to Travel-Intel. The weekly travel industry news channel from Tours.com reaches more than 140,000 sellers of travel in the U.S. and Canada.
For those who are traveling farther afield, Travel-Intel notes that Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) may soon be the international gateway of choice as the 40-year-old Tom Bradley International Terminal debuts the first phase of a $4 billion upgrade next month. The terminal will sport a loftier look and a Great Hall packed with Beverly Hills shopping and star chef dining options.
Some of those travelers maybe headed to long-haul destinations in Asia. Among those places is Ananda, a wellness resort in the foothills of the Himalayas four hours by train from New Delhi. Travel-Intel notes that wellness escapes mark a fast-growing travel trend for stressed out Americans. Ananda is meeting that trend with value-priced retreat weeks that can change life, body and spirit for those who seek change.
Closer to home, Travel-Intel profiles Twin Farms, a luxury resort (member of the exclusive Kurtz-Ahlers collection) in South Central Vermont that features artfully-designed accommodations, inventive gourmet dining, and plenty of hiking, biking and spa pampering. The all-inclusive stay makes a perfect hub for days of antiquing, exploring and checking out Vermont's tradition of summer festivals and county fairs -- also listed in the latest issue of Travel-Intel.
And in this month of baby madness with Kate's and Kim's baby news, Travel-Intel looks at what it takes to travel with a baby and offers a "Travel with Baby" primer to new moms that will help them travel more safely and comfortably with their infants and toddlers in tow.
