No matter your age or student status, one thing is clear: everyone needs a break this spring. And, according to our joint survey* with Allison + Partners, more than half of Americans are planning to celebrate the thaw with at least one trip during the season ahead—and spring break getaways specifically are on the rise.
We dug deeper into the data to see what’s cropping up for the vacation season ahead and determine not only if people are traveling, but also why—and why not. It turns out spring vacation-seekers are chasing new experiences and destinations within U.S. borders, though quality time with family and friends remains a priority. And parents in particular are favoring the value and privacy—not to mention the full kitchens—of vacation rentals for their trip accommodations.
So, let’s take a look at what’s in store for the spring travel season and beyond. Because (in our experience), when there’s a vacation to look forward to, everything’s coming up roses.
If April showers bring May flowers, then March is all about the beach (sorry, not everything rhymes). If you’re looking for the best spring break getaways, here are six of Vacasa’s most-searched destinations for March 2022 check-ins, suggesting that travelers are indeed seeking sand.
