Discovering Gems in Smaller, More Affordable Destinations

Looking for a creative way to spice up your next meeting or incentive travel program? Seeking new options that won’t break your budget? Then you may wish to consider an alternative destination! Our strategic partner, Associated Luxury Hotels International (ALHI), put together a list of some great destinations in alternative markets that can provide great value by offering the option of low cost carriers and a service-driven mindset to meet your needs and make your attendees feel special. 

Rather than always opting for a larger city or a resort destination, consider the following alternative markets (and many others!) for your next meeting, convention, or incentive program:

Naples, Florida

Perched on the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida, this appealing destination is lauded for its miles of pristine soft white-sand beaches, renowned shopping districts, thriving arts and cultural offerings, sophisticated dining, and array of recreational options for nature lovers

Baltimore, Maryland 

Whether your group opts for a Water Taxi ride around the Inner Harbor, a visit to the National Aquarium, or an excursion to the American Visionary Art Museum, you’re in for a real treat.

Atlantic City, New Jersey

Situated just 120 miles south of New York City, and 60 miles east of Philadelphia, this exciting city (known as the “Entertainment Capital of the Jersey Shore”) is easily accessible by airplane, train and car.

Austin, Texas

Recognized as the “Live Music Capital of the World,” this lively destination offers more than 250 music venues, a vibrant arts scene, world-class museums, inspiring cuisine, and stunning outdoor settings. 

San Antonio, Texas

Boasting the famed River Walk that winds along the picturesque San Antonio River, as well as the world-famous Alamo, this vibrant destination offers a wide range of activities, attractions and culinary options to please almost any group.
