According to Maria Lenhart, “I have come off a busy summer, including a huge California supplement for Meetings Today, stories on Scandinavia and luxury cruising for AAA Traveler and various assignments for The Meeting Professional and Airbnb’s new content hub about business travel.”

She hasn’t done too much traveling recently, she says, but did get to enjoy The Inn at Newport Ranch in Fort Bragg and the Tallman Hotel in Lake County. “Both are exceptional places for getaways,” she says.
