America’s love affair with travel
Travel is one of our favorite pastimes, whether it’s a hunger to catch Canada’s most scenic train rides, our haunted hotels, or the desire to head abroad and take advantage of travel deals on these major international destinations. But the nature of the trip changes as the age of the traveller gets younger, according to a new survey by the AARP, believe it or not.
Although AARP’s work tends to focus on adults over the age of 50, this year’s survey polled adults from ages 20 and up who had taken at least one trip of 50 miles or more for a two-night stay within the past two years. Close to 2,000 people responded to AARP’s survey, and they learned some surprising things about millennial travel, says AARP’s Vicki Gelfeld.
