As the New Year gets underway, we are reminded to look ahead towards the future. The most exciting landmarks in any future are the vacations we plan on taking. Thus, it is important to understand the upcoming travel trends to get the most out of any and all future vacations. Jetsetter.com has outlined ten new trends that will be all the rage this year and beyond. From heritage travels to augmented reality, they have thought of it all.
One of the biggest trends that are set to explode is the heritage vacation. Marching into the future, more and more travelers will be looking to the past to guide their vacations to the foreign lands of their ancestry. Technology and tech companies such as Google, will also continue to have a significant role in the travel and vacation industry as well. Similarly, augmented reality, or a layered digital experience over the real world, is forecasted as a future staple in travel. Imagine seeing the inner workings of the Pyramids or how Barcelona’s La Sagrada Familia will look when it is complete when standing next to the construction!
People want new experiences when they travel. That means that they will begin to travel to unexpected cities that are not as well visited. It is predicted that cities such as Detroit, Indianapolis, and Columbus will become major travel destinations in the future. And as people get bored of experiencing the authentic culture, they will begin to move towards extreme vacations – like mountaineering excursions in Kyrgyzstan or pack-rafting Gabon’s Ivindo. The call to adventure will become irresistible. Travel in the United States is down, so expect those vacationers to choose other locales to visit.
