We surveyed Americans on their vacation tendencies, hopes, and dreams. The bottom line? Don’t let time pass you by! Our survey of 2,000 U.S. adults showed that 42% never went on vacation as a kid, a third didn’t experience a vacation until early adulthood, and 25% of respondents daydream about traveling weekly.
We’re calling this late jumpstart to the joys and treasures of vacationing “Vacation FOMO,” but don’t let the fear of missing out stop you from following your traveler dreams. All it means is there’s no time to waste when it comes to crossing off your bucket list! Here are six of our respondents’ most popular responses when asked about ‘must-do’ trips to take in your lifetime.
Gamble in Las Vegas
It’s the entertainment capital of the world for a reason! From the Roman opulence of Caesar’s Palace to the emerald city lights of MGM Grand, Las Vegas is home to some of the best, most extravagant casinos you have to see to believe.
Visit Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida
There is something magical about seeing your favorite childhood stories come to life to then watching that magic pass down to the next generation. Families time and time again love to vacation at Walt Disney World® Resort, and it’s not hard to see why.
Explore the Volcanoes of Hawaii
As if Hawaii wasn’t already a place Americans had on their bucket list, a trip to the volcanic Island of Hawaii can get you a front-row seat to two of the world’s most active volcanoes. For an epic viewing experience, book a helicopter tour to see these natural wonders from the sky.
Snorkel in Los Cabos
Fact–the azure Pacific waters of Los Cabos are best enjoyed by boat! Grab a snorkel and some fins to explore under the sea, and snap some photos of the epic rock formations lining the coast, like the infamous Land’s End Arch.
Island Hop in Greece
The history, the food, the beaches–the list goes on and on. There are hundreds of different islands to choose from when planning a vacation to Greece, so instead of just choosing one, hop from island to island to soak up as much of the culture during your visit.
Swim with the Pigs in the Bahamas
The Bahamas is home to Exuma’s famous Pig Beach, a gorgeous stretch of sand where local pigs roam and relax, go for a dip in the ocean, and pose with tourists. Swim next to these famous locals for an unforgettable photo and experience. Talk about something you can only do on vacation!
