In the United States, one of the most beloved and desired activities most of us participate in is taking a vacation. This cuts across all major demographics: single millennials traveling alone or with friends, newlyweds going on a honeymoon, families with children, and retired empty nesters. However, not all vacations are the same and there are several travel styles that people tend to prefer. Those preferences may change over the course of a traveler's lifetime, depending on where they are in life. For example, when the kids grow up and move out of the house, vacations might shift from theme parks to art museums or jazz clubs. That said, let's explore three unique travel styles. Maybe one of them is your favorite. The Influencer To an Influencer, social media is a big part of how they interact with the world. At the highest levels, an Influencer can impact cultural trends, such as in the worlds of fashion or entertainment, based on what they post about. When traveling, they enjoy sharing photos and videos on their favorite social media channels, including Instagram and Facebook, and get a kick out of it when lots of people like and share their posts. When an Influencer is deciding where to travel on vacation, their first priority is naturally to find a place where they'll have fun and there's plenty to do. Not far behind on the priority list, though, is how interesting and captivating the photos and videos they take will be. Influencers are more likely to want a variety of colorful, splashy environments to serve as backdrops to their images. Influencers are also drawn to iconic landmarks that their followers will easily recognize, especially at destinations people long to visit themselves. They like to take selfies with Cinderella's Castle at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom or the Golden Gate Bridge in the background and show it to the world. Another part of travel that appeals to Influencers is food, especially new and different types of food or the kind of fare you find at a high-end gourmet restaurant. Typically, you won't find them posting a photo of the burger and fries they had for lunch no matter how good it is, unless there's something unique about it. Ideal destination for an Influencer: Orlando, Florida Because Orlando is the theme park capital of the world, it checks a lot of the Influencer's boxes. It's a highly desirable destination that many people dream of going to. Plus, Walt Disney World Resort has been around for almost 50 years, so the photos taken there have a nostalgic appeal to friends and followers. Visually, all the theme parks in Central Florida, which includes Universal Orlando and SeaWorld Orlando, offer plenty of striking images. In addition to the castle at Magic Kingdom, photos of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal's Islands of Adventure or Shamu creating a splash at SeaWorld will easily capture people's imaginations. Central Florida is also a region of the country where nature's beauty is on full display. That's why many people who visit Orlando carve out a little time to go to one of the many state parks and recreation areas nearby. Many of the parks have winding trails that take you up to the water's edge where you can take in a sunset over a pristine lake or observe manatees at a spring-fed river. The Explorer The Explorer is energized by new experiences, especially those that are truly adventurous. These are people who, even though they may go to the same area or destination multiple times, it's mainly because there are so many new adventures for them to try. Like Influencers, Explorers also love nature. They just don't take as many photos and don't share on social media as much. The motivation is more about the thrill of trying something they've never tried before and, just as important, not knowing for certain how it will turn out. Ideal destination for an Explorer: The Poconos in Pennsylvania The Pocono Mountains in eastern Pennsylvania offer a wide variety of activities you can explore. If you prefer to do your exploring on foot, there are plenty of hiking trails in the area such as Hawk Falls Trail and the Seven Tubs Nature Area. You can also explore the Poconos by horseback. A great reason to explore the Poconos is that you can visit at different times of year and the experience changes drastically. When the weather is warmer, there are places where you can take a kayak or canoe out on the water or enjoy a round of golf. In the Fall, the changing of the leaves paints the regions with an entirely different brush and new colors. And in the Winter, snowboarding and skiing are among the many winter sports you can enjoy. The Relaxer Of course, there are a lot of people who go on vacation to relax and decompress from their hectic lives back home. The last thing the Relaxer wants is adventure. Instead, they desire downtime and they want peace and quiet. This is someone who wants to bring a novel with them on vacation … and finish it before they leave! Their strongest desire is to kick back on the beach with nothing but their book and the sound of the waves to keep them company. Relaxers appreciate a nice dinner at a quiet, peaceful restaurant with pleasant atmosphere. They appreciate comfort. They tend to like accommodations that give them room to stretch out so they don't feel so cramped. Ideal destination for a Relaxer: Daytona Beach, Florida The ocean is the main reason anybody travels to Daytona Beach. In fact, its nickname is The World's Most Famous Speech. If your goal is to really relax while you're on vacation, this is a great place to layout a beach towel, lie down and do whatever you want. From time to time, you can get up and walk down to the surf to cool off, then head right back to your special spot on the beach. You can also find several spas in Daytona Beach, where you can get a massage or facial while soothing music plays in the background. Quality spa treatments can simultaneously relax and rejuvenate you, leaving you feeling gloriously pampered. Many spas also offer treatments like manicures, pedicures, wraps, and sauna sessions. No matter what style of traveler you are, Exploria Resorts offers stylish and spacious accommodations in the most desirable destinations – places where you can truly be the traveler you're meant to be!
