Traveling to visit your family’s roots is one of the most satisfying types of travel.
Mountlake Terrace, WA (PRWEB) September 21, 2010
With the recent popularity of PBS’s Faces of America and NBC’s Who Do You Think You Are? more and more people are getting involved in discovering their family history. A new travel agency helps them go one step further and learn more about their heritage by traveling to destinations associated with their “roots.”
According to Harris Interactive, nearly 87 percent of Americans say they are interested in discovering more about their family history. Pairing that interest with travel is one practical way to make family history come alive. Family Roots Travel specializes in booking travel for people to destinations in search of a connection to the past, whether they travel on an escorted tour or by themselves.
“Traveling to visit your family’s roots is one of the most satisfying types of travel,” says Adam Glenn, President of Family Roots Travel. “You can connect in a meaningful way not just with your family’s history, but also with the destination you are traveling to. You’ll also feel more like a local with a connection to the place than a tourist.”
