(PRWEB) December 02, 2011
Where should you go on vacation? WeGoPlaces Tourism has recently polled over 1,700 travelers about their vacation preferences. The results are being used to fine tune their popular “where should I go on vacation?” wizard: http://www.wegoplaces.com/Vacation-Ideas.aspx, which matches vacation preferences to vacation ideas. The majority of the poll responders were couples and families, however single, elderly and group travelers also participated in the survey.
What are most travelers looking for in a vacation? Relaxation and sightseeing tops the list for all participants (38%), but then selections of activities varied by the demographics of the participants. Couples sought dining and entertainment activities while travelers with children chose family fun. “This is invaluable information,” says Jeff Smith, president of WeGoPlaces Tourism. “By learning what different groups of travelers are looking for, we can customize vacation ideas to match their preferences.”
Most travelers seeking accommodations were interested in hotels (39%), followed by resorts (23%), but vacation rentals and B&B’s were also popular choices (17%).
Not surprisingly, most travelers were looking for destinations with mild or warm climates.
While most travelers preferred casual restaurants (42%), gourmet & fine dining (16%) and ethnic food restaurants (15%) were also popular selections.
Working with visitor bureaus across the United States and Canada, WeGoPlaces.com has profiled over 120 vacation destinations to use with the vacation wizard.
