Bleisure Travel

Beleisure-1A trend has been sweeping the business travel world for the last few years: so-called “bleisure” travel, or trips that combine business and leisure into one. We asked business travel expert Road Warriorette to weigh in on the best way to work and play on the same trip.

Denver International Airport - DEN

Denver International Airport is the largest airport in the U.S. by land area and one of the largest in the world.  Whereas many airports are constrained by the city around them, Denver built the airport in the middle of farmland well outside the city.  This has made it a challenge to get to the city center with taxi rides exceeding 45 minutes and costing $55.  In April 2016, a new train line was opened connecting the airport to Union Station in 37 minutes at a cost of $9. The airport’s most distinctive feature is the spiked-tent roof meant to mimic the snow-capped Rocky Mountains.

LaGuardia Traffic

LGAEarlier this year, details were released for a massive redevelopment of LaGuardia. Construction has begun this summer, begining with changes to access roads and parking garages to make way for the terminal redevelopment.  Along with that has come major issues with traffic to and around the airport. 

As construction pushes on, and different access roads are affected, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is advising travelers departing from LGA to arrive at the airport at least 2 hours before your flight to ensure that you have adequate time to reach the terminal. At this point, most services inside the terminals are operating as usual, so no further delays are expected.  However, with travelers arriving early, that will mean a more crowded terminal. Check out our review of what to do and where to eat at LaGuardia as you wait for your flight.
