One of the most interesting parts of putting together this issue of The Affluent Traveler was researching current travel trends. After so many lockdowns and travel restrictions, jet-setters are once again out and about, exploring new destinations and rediscovering those places that mean so much to all of us.

Travelers are going back and revisiting the classics – and this issue has everything you need to know about many of the time-tested destinations and adventures that never fail to disappoint. Places like the Caribbean and Mexico, havens for sun-worshippers and pleasure seekers, remain as popular as ever. Further abroad, all eyes seem to be on Italy, especially Sicily with its timeless appeal, gorgeous landscapes, and unhurried pace of life. Closer to home, travelers are excited to hit the open road this summer and fall with New England being one of the most talked about destinations for great road trips.

Globetrotters are also looking to upgrade their trips with more bespoke luxury accommodations and services. Nowhere is this more apparent than in our Cruise Spotlight article on ship-within-a-ship cruising that combines the luxury services and amenities traditionally found on small ships with the opportunities for activities and entertainment of larger ships.

If you prefer a land-based escape that’s equally packed with all the “bells and whistles” one can think of, our Well-being Spotlight column features four premier resorts where you can soak up plenty of relaxation and inspiring adventures. We’ll also check out some of the United States’ most outstanding historic hotels, and preview some of the hottest up-and-coming hotels, resorts, and cruises where you can truly enjoy the good life.

As always, the most important step you can take when considering your next travel experience is to contact an Affluent Traveler Collection travel advisor. They are perfectly positioned to assist you with your travel planning from start to finish, no matter where or when you choose to go. 

Safe and happy travels!
