It’s no surprise that Millennials love to “do it for the ‘gram.” But when it comes to travel buddies, it’s Millennials’ desire to travel with Grandpa and Grandma that may surprise you.

Visit Anaheim [visitanaheim.org], the official destination organization for Anaheim partnered with actress and mom Holly Robinson Peete to reveal results of a new survey which shows multigenerational vacations are top-of-mind with travelers when it comes to reliving memories, while also creating new ones, with the next generation. The survey polled a sample of 1,000 Americans and found that Millennial respondents (aged 25-34) lead the category when it comes to wanting more multigenerational trips, coming in at a whopping 83%!

Some survey results include:

· TRAVEL TREND: 66% of respondents have traveled with three or more generations of their family. In fact, the majority plan on taking more extended family trips!

· NOSTALGIA: Many parents and grandparents love reliving memories. The majority (56%) “strongly agree” that multigenerational trips are more special when visiting somewhere their parents or grandparents have been before and 53% report being “very happy” when they take trips to places they’ve previously been with their parents or children.

· LET’S HIT THE ROAD: Multigenerational trips are most likely to be either a road trip (69%), traveling to see family (67%), or a flight to a major destination (48%).

· GRANDPARENT TRAVEL PERKS: Top benefits of traveling with three generations are allowing bonding time and spending more quality time together.
