The summer is winding down and the kids are getting ready to hit the books again. There’s only one weekend left, and AAA estimates that 34.4 million Americans will travel at least 50 miles from home to get away one last time. But where are they going?
While we can’t speak for all travellers, if our recent bookings are any indication it looks as though most adventure-seekers are spending their long-weekend within driving distance and saving their vacation time for the colder winter months. We’re happy to report that we’ve already received several bookings for November and beyond. Since many of our travellers like to meet cool new people like you on their vacations, we thought we’d highlight a few of their trips. If you’re interested in reserving your spot on one of these adventures, let us know!
