Recent research from Longwoods International and Miles Partnership shows that fall travel will include road trips by many Americans.
Nearly a quarter of travelers say they will travel by car within 200 miles for their next trip, and 16 percent will take a road trip of more than 200 miles. This represents growth from the spring.
Outdoor activities are the top activities that travelers plan for fall travel. In addition to road trips and visiting friends and family, travelers plan to visit parks, festivals, view fall foliage, hike, bike and experience fall harvest activities.
