How Trendy

August 01, 2011

If you’re the type who follows the hottest trends in fashion - think TV show “Fashion Police” and those Vogue magazines weighty enough to make you throw out your back - and the latest trends in food - Food Network rules - then there’s every chance your thirst for being on-trend probably spills over into your vacation planning as well. Travel trend guru Peter Yesawich is quoted all over the internet for his annual projections which are backed up by tons of research. Take a gander at what he’s predicted for U.S. travelers:

  • Beach vacations are hot, hot, hot, selected by one-third of families surveyed. Also high on the list is a theme park vacation, taken by one out of four.
  • Seven out of ten took a “celebration vacation” to mark a birthday or anniversary. A twist on that would be a getaway to celebrate a high school or college graduation, a promotion or raise, or a destination wedding.
  • Multi-generational travel is still in, with two-thirds of grandparents taking a vacation with their grandkids.
  • Last-minute planning doesn’t mean you’re a slacker - you’re just looking for a good deal. About one-third of all travelers departed just six days before deciding to take a trip.
  • There’s virtually no one who doesn’t go online to get travel info. Virtually everyone goes online to get travel info.
  • Children have a say in where the family goes for vacation in half of all households.
    We decided to delve a little deeper into two of those trends - going to the beach and multi-generational travel - to see how they play out in Wisconsin Dells.
