Many preconceived notions exist about North American travelers, some of them are accurate, others not so much. One of the most common notions people have about American travelers is that they travel frequently, and more so than any other kind of traveler.
To help get more accurate information out there, InCruises decided it was time to shed some light on American travel.
Do North Americans Travel Frequently?
The short answer to the question “Do North Americans travel frequently?” is yes. But, this answer doesn’t tell you the whole story.
While it is true that Americans traditionally take more frequent trips, the duration of these trips are growing shorter and shorter as time goes on. In fact, new research shows that more travelers from the United States are using less vacation days as a whole, and some opt not to use them at all.
Where Do North Americans Travel To?
When it comes to travel destinations, Americans tend to travel domestically. Some of the top travel destinations in the U.S. are New York, Texas, California, and Florida. Canadians tend to be an exception, as they are more likely to travel internationally than other North Americans.
However, even when traveling internationally, North Americans tend to pick destinations that are on the same continent, with Mexico being one of the most popular destinations. Canada is also a popular destination, especially for travelers from the U.S.
