CheapOair.com Reveals Top Destinations for Empty-Nest Travelers

The kids are back to school and parents of grown children are feeling that sense of wanderlust. CheapOair®, the premier online travel agency and leading provider of affordable flights, has found the top destinations for empty-nest travelers seeking out adventure this fall.

“Dropping the kids off at college can be emotional but it’s also the perfect opportunity for parents to take advantage of their sudden increased free time,” said Tom Spagnola, CheapOair’s Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations.

According to CheapOair’s data, Las Vegas, NV, and Denver, CO, took the top spots for customers over the age of 50.

“We’re seeing a major increase of travelers favoring ‘more unusual’ over ‘most popular’ destinations for the 2019 Labor Day Weekend,” said Tom Spagnola, CheapOair’s Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations. “Many are escaping the late summer heat of Las Vegas, NV or Miami, FL, and planning adventures to non-traditional cities like Tupelo, MS or Trenton, PA, in order to explore hidden travel gems throughout the U.S.”

For those looking to use their long weekend to discover hidden American gems, CheapOair has identified the top cities offering travelers the most bang for their vacation buck.

On National Book Lovers Day, Fly With CheapOair to Author Homes

CheapOair®, the online travel agency and a leading provider of affordable flights, is celebrating National Book Lovers Day by sharing their list of must-see American authors homes. Each of these iconic homesteads will fit perfectly into any bibliophile’s travel itinerary.

Emily Dickinson and Museum – Amherst, Massachusetts
While it’s true that Emily Dickinson spent most of her adult life in relative seclusion, the home in which she spent her days was an idyllic New England gem tucked away in Amherst, Massachusetts. When in Dickinson’s room it’s all too easy to imagine her sitting at her desk and composing one of the thousands of poems she wrote in her lifetime.  The Emily Dickinson Museum boasts art, impeccably preserved Victorian furniture, and intimate glimpses into the life of a woman whose life is still shrouded in mystery.

Nearest Airports: Bradley International Airport, Boston Logan International Airport

Ernest Hemingway’s Home – Key West, Florida
Almost everything you need to know about the man Hemingway was could be found in his opulent Key West Spanish Colonial style home. Filled to the brim with hunting trophies from his African safaris, an inground pool, Spanish inspired architecture, and approximately 40 polydactyl cats all said to be descendants of Hemingway’s own cat Snow White, who was given to him by a ship captain some time after moving into the home.

Nearest Airport: Key West International Airport

The Mark Twain House – Hartford, Connecticut
As you could expect from the eccentric and sharp mind of Mark Twain, his home was one of innovation and many modern flourishes for the time it was built in 1874. Luxuries such as running water, a working telephone, and even a conservatory stocked fully with thriving green plants. Although the house was sold in 1903, it’s widely agreed that Twain’s happiest family memories took place in this lovely Victorian home.

Nearest Airport: Bradley International Airport

William Faulkner – Rowan Oak – Oxford Mississippi
Located in Oxford, Mississippi, which has become a literary mecca in its own right, William Faulkner’s home boasts beautiful grounds with 29 acres to stroll through. Faulkner, who bought the house to live a more peaceful life, was constantly making renovations and that care is still very apparent as one explores its rooms. Faulkner also had a unique habit of writing drafts of his works directly on the walls – some of which are still visible to visitors today!

Nearest airport: Tupelo Airport

The Steinbeck House – Salinas, California
Although most famously known for writing about life’s hardships during the Great Depression, John Steinbeck’s childhood home was one of relative comfort. Located in scenic Salinas, California, this idyllic Victorian home is where Steinbeck spent his formative years before going on to write classics such as The Grapes of Wrath and East of Eden.

Nearest airport: Monterey Regional Airport or San Francisco International Airport

CheapOair.com’s Data Unveils 2019’s Superior Summer Vacation Spots

CheapOair®, the premier online travel agency and a leading provider of affordable flights, has announced its top summer vacation getaways for flights booked through Labor Day. The most-visited destinations of the summer include tourist hot spots Orlando, Las Vegas, and New York; with the Big Apple dropping down to third after previously clinching last year’s number one spot.

This season’s low-cost travel boom is a result of a recent increase in seat capacity which has allowed airlines to become more flexible in offering lower introductory fares. The change has driven a nearly 7% increase in passengers traveling within the United States as compared to last year between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

“While the usual suspects – New York, Orlando and Los Angeles– continue their reign on the shortlist, there is also an increased interest in other travel gems like Denver and Seattle. Now is the perfect time for travelers to jump on the bandwagon to discover new cities and take advantage of these amazing deals.” said Tom Spagnola, CheapOair’s Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations.
