For a Healthy Vacation, Take a Walk

Walking tours offer an up-close and personal view of your destination, with a bonus: You can indulge in gourmet meals without worrying about your waistline.

Imagine a vacation in which you immerse yourself in another culture, make new friends and enjoy fabulous cuisine—with no worries that your pants will be too snug when you get home. That’s the appeal of walking tours, a popular vacation option for health-conscious travelers who don’t mind working up a sweat as long as there’s a good meal and a soft bed waiting for them at the end of the day.
