McLean, VA, March 9, 2015 – Boomers and Traditionalists are breaking out this spring as these older travelers drive the overall increase in springtime leisure travel compared to last year. Younger travelers maintain the same leisure trips as before, with Gen X and Millennial travel remaining relatively unchanged according to a national survey by D.K. Shifflet & Associates. Boomer leisure travel has increased for the past two springs.
