Going on vacation, even just a short and relatively pared back one, is a matter of considerable importance for many people all throughout the United States. After all, more than 35% of all families here say that taking a vacation together is one of their very favorite ways to spend time with one another, making going on vacation the number one – by quite a long shot – activity that families currently enjoy doing together, at least here in the United States, let alone in other places all around the world as a whole.
But going on vacation is not just a family activity – couples often partake in vacationing together as well. After all, it’s a great way to reconnect with each other and get some (likely much needed) one on one time with your other half. The data that has been gathered on this subject more than backs up this claim, showing that nearly three quarters of couples who go on vacation together find it a great time during which to talk deeply with one another and reconnect on a deeper level. And more than 40% of all travelers even say that going on a vacation, even just a short one, can help them to feel considerably more romantic than when they are not on vacation, effects which can even last considerably past the end of the vacation itself, rejuvenating even the most long term and potentially stale of all relationships out there.
So there are many reasons to go on vacation here in the United States, but there are certainly a number of things that must be considered before the enjoyment of any given vacation can really begin – and before even the anticipation and excitement can start as well. For one thing, you’ll need to find a location you want to travel to. For most people, traveling domestically is a more ideal path than anything else. This is due to the fact that domestic travel is on the rise, having increased by very nearly 2% in the year of 2017 alone, a number that has only continued to climb in the years that have followed since.
For many people, domestic travel is simply far easier than traveling outside of the country, with less steps involved and likely much shorter amounts of time spent traveling as well. But still, you’ll need to pick a place to stay that’s not only affordable and enjoyable – no mater where you end up going. From pet friendly cottages to the finest luxury hotels to even cheaper accommodations such as motels found all throughout the country, there are many different places to stay here in the United States.
All of these accommodations, from cottages to hotel rooms, will come with different perks and detriments. Cottages, for instance, are more likely to have fully usable kitchens than other types of accommodations like motels and hotels. For many people, this will be a huge reason to look into cottages for the accommodations for their next vacation, as nearly three quarters of all travelers who also have children felt that it was desirable to have access to a kitchen. After all, children can be quite picky eaters, and cottages with kitchens provide a way to combat this even while traveling.
But hotel rooms can be more ideal than cottages for some reasons, to be sure. For instance, nice hotel rooms are more likely to provide additional services than cottages are, services like room service and daily cleaning of the room. For those who are looking to do as little work as is possible while they are traveling, choosing hotel rooms is likely to be more ideal than looking into the cottages that might also be in the area. At the end of the day, it really all comes down to personal preference for many people here in the United States, and this is not something that should be underestimated by any means.
Planning a vacation can take a lot of time to do properly, but taking this time will ensure that you have fun once on it.
