One year ends, bringing to a conclusion a chapter of wonderful travel memories. But what does 2016 have in store for us? According to a recent study by Travelex, a foreign currency exchange company, there is a general sense of where we Americans are headed and what we plan on doing when we get there.

Travelex released the results of an immersive study that found precisely Where Americans Plan to Go in 2016. According to a release, the study takes into account a sample size of 2,263 American adults 18 years or older.

Now we welcome you to pore over the various slides at your leisure. However, here are some interesting bits we gleaned from the study.

Now here is a brief breakdown on where American plan to travel based on regions such as West, Midwest, Southern and North Eastern.

The study found some intriguing items from its respondents, including the fact that a whopping 66 percent of Americans aren’t even planning to travel abroad next year.

As for the where, Travelex offers: “American’s favorite vacation destinations are also the closest – with Mexico, the Caribbean and Canada topping the list. The U.K. is fourth followed by Italy.”

The study not only offers interactive graphics but a separate section that breaks down in detail the above-mentioned regions and the future travel habits therein.

For example, those in the west are the most likely Americans to sacrifice items like the gym in order to save up for their respective vacation.

The entire study is a cavalcade of travel behavior from a wide range of Americans who will include International travel into their 2016 itineraries.
