Americans select city lights for autumn getaways Reuters October 1, 2010
An end-of-August poll of more than 2000 travelers at TripAdvisor found 86 percent of travelers planning trips, up from 76 percent last autumn. A full 78 percent said the economy would not affect their travel plans.
"American's don't have a lot of vacation time, three weeks or less, so giving up on a vacation is a last resort," said TripAdvisor's Brooke Ferencsik. "Fall is when savvy travelers take advantage of fewer crowds, nice weather and great deals."
