This is a lot of money especially in a time where the economy is not the strongest. This means that people really enjoy traveling and are willing to spend money, even if they do not have it yet.
The top five leisure trips include visiting relative, shopping, visiting friends, rural sightseeing, and beaches. This is a board category. The trend seems to be visiting people. Families get together and caught up with each other, since they probably have not seen each other since last summer. Once everyone is together, they go shopping or sightseeing, meaning the top five all stems from going to visit each other. The more people in the family, the more money that will be spend on an outing. This helps to boost the overall figures. Foreign traveler are the most helpful to the American economy.
