48 Travel Dining Experiences

From Luxe Airport Champagne Bars to Spanish Food Vacations

— December 9, 2015 — Lifestyle
While it seems that only a few years ago the average airport terminal would at best have a handful of fast food options, the travel dining experience has been almost entirely overhauled to include unexpected gourmet offerings. Additionally, hotels are increasingly banking on hyper-niche dining options that draw in guests during a time when many cost-efficient travelers are being tempted by the affordability of hostels.

Food and beverage-based travel packages also seek to highlight the best of local eat and drink, something busy individuals may not have time to do thoroughly enough ahead of a trip. From craft beer-dedicated hotels to cross-state wine tours aboard a train, there are a magnificent number of ways to properly indulge in the best food and drink a destination has to offer.
