American's Share Their "Must-Do" Trips

How old were you when you first went on vacation? While 51% of U.S. adults took their first trip before they turned 18, 42% never went on vacation as a kid, according to new research. But a lot of them are making up for lost time as adults.

A new survey of 2-thousand reveals:

  • The average person has been on six vacations purely for fun and relaxation and they’re longing for more.
  • A quarter of Americans daydream about traveling most of the week and have six destinations on their “I’ll go there someday” bucket list.
  • The “must-do” trips respondents think everyone should take at some point include:
    • a weekend trip to Las Vegas for casino-hopping and gambling - 46%
    • Visiting the White House and monuments in Washington, D.C. - 45%
    • Seeing the Grand Canyon in Arizona - 42%
    • Going to Mount Rushmore in South Dakota - 38%
    • Visiting Disney World in Florida - 36%
    • Going to a volcano in Hawaii - 29%
    • Checking out Times Square in New York City - 28%
    • Exploring the Greek Islands - 19%
    • Seeing the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt - 17%
    • Swimming with the pigs in the Bahamas - 17%
  • Nearly half of those polled (45%) think they’ll be traveling more this year than in 2022, with two-thirds saying they plan to take at least two trips this year and spending an average of $4-thousand.
  • For Gen X and baby boomers, this year is for trips to relaxing and peaceful places like Florida and Hawaii.
  • Millennials are focused on long-haul destinations like Dubai and France.
  • Gen Zers are looking to visit vacation destinations including California and the Caribbean.
  • Respondents say the main difference between a trip and a vacation is being away from home for a certain amount of time, with most agreeing that a vacation is at least seven days long.
