Led by millennials, some 88 million Americans plan to take family vacations this year. According to the latest research from AAA Travel, 44% of millennials are planning a family getaway, more than members of Generation X (39%) or Baby Boomers (32%).
“Just like generations before them, millennials see a family vacation as one of the best ways to create memories and reconnect with loved ones,” said Bill Sutherland, AAA senior vice president of travel and publishing. “No matter their age, families are going on not just one, but multiple vacations throughout the year to revisit favorite destinations and experience new places.”
As travelers seek new sights, AAA expects family trips abroad to be a hot trend in 2018. Of families who will take a trip this year, 35% plan to visit an international destination – a 9-percentage point increase from just two years ago.
