Would you rather drive or fly for vacation? It turns out most Americans prefer to DRIVE for a family vacation.
Now, while this may be a subjective thing, the people who prefer driving have something in common...they have kids. In fact, research shows the average parent would travel 1400 miles by car before even considering another mode of transport. 85% of parents would drive "whenever possible" and most believe their kids feel the same. For a lot of families, the car is an extension of home. It makes it a little easier to travel with kids, who are in a familiar setting, they have the things they need, can stop to take "breaks" whenever they need to etc. Most parents look at flying with their kids to be a nightmare and as a dad, I have to agree!
