The yearly Leisure Lifestyle Awards are given every year after Global Traveler conducts a survey of its readers. This year’s survey took place from October 1, 2017 through January 31, 2018. The readers answered open-ended questions for the best in many categories of leisure, luxury and lifestyle travel.

The survey ran in the magazine, as an insert to subscriber copies, as a direct mail questionnaire, online at globaltravelerusa.com/leisureballot and emailed during the period in question. Only those questionnaires where more than 50 percent of the questions were completed were counted.
