New Traveling Trends include “Quiet Traveling”

There’s a growing number of people who seemingly want to get away from their busy lifestyle. Yet, going to some of the popular destinations that other folks also go on vacation at won’t cut it for this type of traveler. It makes sense; if you’re trying to get away from people, why would you “vacation” at a busy hub? Even if that city is, for example, at the beach! These are some of the new travel experiences people seemingly want to have.

Solo Trips

The search for solo trips is on the rise this year. It seems that people are keen to get away from others at least once a year. A lot of these trends actually complement this idea of quiet traveling that many folks are hoping to do on their own. It’s kind of hard to reflect on your life in a staycation. At the same time, it can be a bit worrisome or even suspicious to people around you if you check into a local hotel alone. If you do so abroad, it would make a bit more sense.

Travel Diaries

Users on Pinterest have searched for the term travel diary pages 155% more this year than the year before. As mentioned, this ties in with the growing trend of solo traveling. People seem to be looking for calm and quiet places where they can sit and journal their thoughts. An activity that tends to flow much better when a person is on their own.

This trend has been on the rise for a while. That’s not only evident in search trends but also in the fact that glamping experiences seem to be popping up left and right. These have especially become popular in beaches and even desert destinations. The decent nightly weather that these places offer is one of the reasons more people are willing to stay outdoors. Of course, glamping is a step above your regular camping experience as well. In a sense, people want to stargaze and do all the fun stuff that regular camping has to offer without having to sleep on the ground.

National Parks

The search for “National Park” has increased 250% in the last 12 months. This is great news for these federal dependencies. If more people visit these places, it’s easier to secure funds to maintain them. In spite of the fact that most travel numbers have already rebounded to at least pre-pandemic levels, that’s not the case for national park visitation. The total number of people who came to these places was still a bit lower than in 2019. That could change, though, when the numbers for 2024 come out.

Cabin in the Mountains

A cabin in the mountains with a cup of coffee and a travel journal. That’s the ideal weekend for a lot of people. However, it’s important to point out that some of these spots aren’t ideal for solo travel. That being said, the fact that the search for this term is on the rise stays consistent with the trend of travelers looking for quiet spots. It could also point to the fact that people have more time to travel. That could be a result of the rise of remote work. This is a variable that we explored recently as well.

Village Atmosphere

An experience that’s also growing among travelers. In a sense, it’s about learning how other people live. That’s something that you can only truly learn through traveling. It would seem, though, that for many years, it wasn’t something that people were interested in. Village life is much calmer than city life, after all, and now people appreciate that or at least are trying to do so.
