Summer Buying Guide: Beach & Travel Essentials
In her 2022 Favorite Things List, Oprah said “Travel is baaaack!” and we couldn’t agree more. In recent years, domestic leisure travel has become increasingly popular, as people look for more affordable and convenient travel options. In fact, according to the U.S. Travel Association, 1 in 4 people plan to travel more for leisure than they did in 2022! Domestic leisure travel can also provide a number of benefits, including boosting local economies and supporting small businesses.
