TWchats recap: Tops in Travel, Sept. 2019

Our annual Tops in Travel Twitter chat gives participants the opportunity to share their favorite, or top, travel products and experiences in 12 categories. From "top #travel destination" at 3 p.m. to "top under-the-radar foodie destination" at 3:55 p.m., our tweeters were on their game with tremendous top tips for travel.

Here were a few top answers to chat questions:

Q2: "Top tip for beating the crowds in a popular destination." Several respondents tweeted that a travel advisor would help get them make the most of a busy destination. Another tip? Just skip the busy destination for something equally great.

Q4: "Top family-travel trend?" Trust the tell-it-like-it-is editors at @Wonderlust travel to identify this top trend:

Q7: "Top 'authentic'experience that's truly authentic?" This question came from editor in chief Arnie Weissmann's cover story about authenticity in destinations.

Q8: "Top sustainable-travel program or product?" Surprise tip from Royal Caribbean International senior vice president Vicki Freed: Travel in the off season.

Q11: "Top aspirational trip? Don't hold back ...." we had several participants who specialize in the art (and practical logistics) of aspirational travel on this chat. For further #inspo on amazing travel, look no further than travel advisors' social media feeds.
