13 Sep September Travel Trends 2017
The summer is coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean your travel plans have to. The end of the season results in dramatic decreases in both domestic and international travel, making it easier for you to plan a getaway. And if you’re willing to take the kids out of school for a bit, you can really take advantage of valuable time together with an unforgettable family retreat. Here are some of the top September travel trends 2017 to help you figure out the best way to plan your vacation.
College Towns are on the Rise
Research has shown that most of the travel that happens during September is to top college towns in the United States. Places like Orlando, Southern California, and Boston make great fall getaways. And if you have a kid in one of these schools, you can turn a visit into a family vacation. These are also areas where tourism dies down after the summer months, allowing you to save on accommodations and enjoy less crowds at restaurants and other attractions.
Combine a Family and Friends Vacation
As the Millennial generation are becoming parents, they are valuing experiences while asking themselves why family and friends vacations needs to be separate. The rise in popularity of resort rentals allow you to book spacious, well-equipped accommodations that can sleep up to 12 guests. This makes it easy to save on where you stay and have more money to spend on experiences during your vacation. Plus, the kids will enjoy spending quality time with their friends while you’ll enjoy more adult time with yours.
A similar concept is the rise of parents and kids vacationing with their grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Having the large suites to stay in will make everyone feel right at home while enjoying quality family time.
Spontaneous Trips Don’t Break the Bank
While there once was a time that spontaneity was associated with the wealthy, that is no longer the case. In fact, you can find incredible last minute deals on travel accommodations. Airlines also often offer nice discounts if you book last minute. But if you don’t want to risk it, driving to a vacation destination is always a good way to go. Save on flights and make a road trip out of it. While some families love to plan, it can pay to just pick up and go! And besides, if you have young kids…school can wait! Experiences and memories together will last a lifetime.
