Summerfest by Loews Hotels: This is How to Celebrate Summer

Loews Miami Beach Hotel

After enduring two summers of uncertainty, Loews Hotels & Co, the brand behind 26 hotels and resorts across the United States and Canada, is celebrating seasonal travel, in-person connectivity, and the art of authenticity with a summer-long immersive program dedicated to inclusion in ALL forms: Summerfest by Loews Hotels. As part of Loews’ commitment to “welcoming you like family,” the brand has curated warm weather offerings designed to appeal to guests of all ages, abilities, and lifestyles.

Summerfest by Loews Hotels kicks off June 1, 2022 and runs through Labor Day. Available in most destinations across the portfolio, the program is infused with signature elements of each location with summer-themed offerings including:

Summerfest Cultural Safaris

To help guests discover the hidden gems of their respective destination, each participating property launches its own “Summerfest Cultural Safari.” Designed as a self-guided tour, the Summerfest Cultural Safaris include everything from destination landmarks to must-photograph street art, local dog parks, family-owned local businesses, and community events. The Summerfest Cultural Safaris are fully inclusive and are designed for all ages and all abilities, with a majority of the points of interest within a short radius from each property. Sample Summerfest Cultural Safari destinations include:

Loews Ventana Canyon Resort - DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun Museum, a nationally recognized historic location features immersive southwest art including the current exhibit “DeGrazia’s Sombreros” & “DeGrazia’s Native Dancers” that traces more than fifty years of the evolving symbolism and abstraction of the traditional Mexican sombrero in the artwork of Ted DeGrazia.

Live! by Loews Arlington - Arlington Sculpture Trail at Richard Greene Linear Park, a 0.3 mi walkable trail within the Richard Greene Linear Park featuring Caelum Moor Environmental Sculptures.

Loews Miami Beach Hotel - Española Way, located between 14th and 15th Streets, the historic and recently restored Mediterranean-inspired hideaway offers vibrant dining options and free nightly entertainment along the pastel-colored pedestrian corridor.
