Beach Vacations By The Numbers
We all kind of know that there is just no place like the beach for vacation, and now at least one survey confirms it.
The Expedia Flip Flop Report checks out vacationing habits all across the world and the beach was the big winner, with 75% of people saying they are very or somewhat likely to take a beach vacation, according to a report at marketwatch.com.
Nearly 30% of people surveyed said they would actually work weekends for a month to get an extra week on the beach, and just over 10% said they would get the 48 hour flu in order to get an extra beach vacation week.
And the top three activities at the beach are walking (70%), swimming (65%) and sunbathing (53%) with reading and taking a nap rounding out the top 5.
