SPA VACATIONS | More than half (54%) of travelers said they were currently interested in going to a spa or a place where they can relax and rejuvenate themselves. The majority (40%) are 35-54 years old; however, interest is strong among 18-34 year-olds (37%).
VOLUNTEER VACATIONS:
One-quarter (24%) of travelers said they were currently interested in taking a volunteer or service-based vacation. Interest was strongest among boomers, with the largest share (47%) falling into the 35-54 year old age range.

More than 35% of travelers said they were currently interested in traveling to places that cater to children.
SPIRITUAL VACATIONS:
One-quarter (25%) of travelers said they were currently interested in taking a spiritual vacation such as a religious retreat or pilgrimage. The appeal spans the ages, with one-third of each age group (18-34, 35-54 and 55+) expressing interest in such a vacation.
