The "staycation" is not yet dead, but its popularity may be waning.
The tendency to stay close to home for vacation -- a trend that became popular during the Great Recession -- is losing its appeal as more Americans become more interested in having a good time when they travel than in saving money. The findings are from a survey of 2,527 U.S. households by marketing and research firms MMGY Global and Harrison Group.
The survey found that the average amount spent on vacations over the last 12 months has grown to $4,461, compared with $3,874 during the same period two years ago.
