Perhaps 2017 is the year to move on from the annual trip to the lake house, or at least shake things up a bit with a second family vacation to Kyoto or Bordeaux. According to a recent survey by Airbnb, conducted online by Harris Poll among family travelers (defined as parents of children under 18 who have ever taken a family vacation), over 2 in 5 (43%) say their family prefers to travel to a new destination every year, while 45% say they like a mix of both old and new destinations each year.
