Survey shows uptick in U.S. travel, tourism industry

Minneapolis, MN - MINNEAPOLIS, MN (WMBF) - A new survey released Thursday from Travel Leaders reveals leisure travel is on the upswing across much of the U.S., giving new hope the trend of 'staycations' are a thing of the past.

More than 63 percent of people who completed Travel Leaders' nationwide survey said they had already taken at least one trip in 2010 and more than 77 percent indicated they will take two or more trips in the remainder of 2010.

The online survey was conducted in March and includes responses from 800 people, predominantly Travel Leaders' clientele, throughout the U.S.
