Destination Salem

Historic Salem, Massachusetts offers interesting group programming year-round.  Salem Haunted Happenings in October is the busiest time of year in Salem, and tour planners will find scores of events, attractions, and museums for groups of all ages and interests.  Performance groups can hit a high note during Haunted Harmonies, an annual a cappella festival  in October that includes an educational component for students and an evening performance for all.  Winter in New England takes a sweet turn in February during the Salem So Sweet chocolate and ice sculpture festival.  Just 15 miles north of Boston!

San Diego Tourism Authority 

With its desirable combination of pleasantly warm weather – averaging 65°F during December through February – 70 miles of sparkling beaches, world-class attractions, hot dining and craft brewery scene, flourishing arts and culture and more, San Diego is a perfect winter getaway.

From traditional holiday parades and festivals – like the San Diego Bay Parade of Lights and Balboa Park December Nights to the migration of California gray whales along the Pacific coast from December through March, a visit to San Diego during the winter offers a wealth of fun and festive experiences.  Sports fans can experience the Breeder’s Cup in November (Horse racing) Holiday Bowl  (college football) in December and the Farmers Insurance Open (Golf at Torrey Pines)  in January.  Food lovers can enjoy San Diego Restaurant Week in January while art enthusiasts can relish in San Diego Museum Month in February.  No matter the interest, visitors to the region can escape overcast skies and the wintry cold for San Diego’s brilliant sunshine and temperate climate and enjoy diverse wintertime experiences.  Happiness is calling!


North Dakota Tourism Division

Some of life’s best moments happen when you are traveling and your next stop includes a surprising treat.  You are met by a local from the community and it’s time to explore new territory through the maze at the pumpkin patches, or listen to the rumble of an antique threshing machines or get your que to join in the grand entry of a powwow.   All doable in Legendary North Dakota. 

Your visit may include a cruise along the Missouri River or Lake Sakakawea and one of the many ethnic celebrations throughout the state such as; Germanfest, Oktoberfest, August the Deuce or the Norsk Høstfest.  Plenty of delicious treats, you’ll love to eat, even if you can’t pronounce them.  Kuchen, knoephla soup, fleischkuechle, lefsa and sauerkraut, it’s a savory adventure just waiting for you. 

Outdoor action means it’s time for downtown street fairs, food trucks, craft beers and wine from local vineyards.  It’s time for rodeos, powwows, street dances, boutique shopping, farmer’s markets and summer musicals and theater performances.  Include a park ranger talk at the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, Knife River Indian Villages and Fort Union National Historic Sites.  It’s time to create your legendary tour to North Dakota. 


Travel Portland

In Portland, there’s no shortage of festivals celebrating our rich arts, culinary and craft brew culture. In June, an annual tradition continues to draw group tours for the last 100 years. You'll see why we're the Rose City when all-floral floats, bands and flower-decked equestrian units march the downtown streets during the Portland Rose Festival. In July, visitors can groove to professional blues performers along the Willamette River at the Waterfront Blues Festival. Bite of Oregon and Feast Portland are the premier foodie festivals in September, recognized nationally for drawing big-name chefs to the city. Other unique annual festivals include: Oregon Brewers Festival, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and Wooden Shoe Tulip Fest.


Sealy Convention and Visitors Bureau

If summer has slowed you down, July is your “pick-me-up” Sealybration in Sealy, Texas (Just 50 minutes West of Houston).  A weekend party in Sealy would not be complete without music and the line-up is always incredible. Friday’s festivities kick off with Vendors, Carnival, and Barbeque Cook-off.  Saturday events commence with Vendors, Carnival, Fireworks, and Live Entertainment until 1 am.   The first weekend in December is very special here in Sealy when our community holds its highly anticipated Fantasy of Lights Celebration.  Our community comes together to rejoice the Christmas season with visitors from all over Texas.
