Vegetarian Vacation Guide

The Vegetarian Resource Group has published a four page sampling of vegetarian vacation spots gathered for their book Vegetarian Journal's Guide to Natural Foods Restaurants in the US and Canada. The book lists over 2,000 restaurants and over 200 resorts, bed and breakfasts, travel agents, and tours. The vacation spot sampler gives vegetarian travelers over forty bed and breakfasts, spas, resorts, and retreats to consider for their next vacation.

The vacation spots range from a quiet bed and breakfast on Mount Desert Island in Maine, to a strictly vegan health resort located in the Black Hills of South Dakota, to a vegetarian hotel in France that offers vegetarian soirees twice a week.
