NEW YORK — Three out of five Americans think they’ve wasted their summer if they haven’t traveled anywhere. The poll of 2,000 adults reveals that 58 percent are either planning a summer vacation or already have one in place for this year. Meanwhile, the average respondent took about four different vacations per year when they were a kid.
So, it’s no surprise that more than two in five (42%) say vacations are their favorite type of trip as a child, more so than family visits (41%) and school field trips (35%).
Conducted on behalf of Roadpass Digital by OnePoll, the survey asked respondents to explore how their past childhood travels might inform their current plans. Today, almost two-thirds (63%) of respondents are more interested in planning “staycations” – trips that are closer to home – than they were a few years ago.
Family staycations are the new vacations?
