TripAdvisor, the world's largest travel site, revealed its 2017 Summer Vacation Value Report, highlighting the top 50 domestic destinations for U.S. travelers this summer, based on the greatest increase in seasonal hotel booking interest, including the average one-week vacation costs for hotels and airfare. The report also helps travelers discover savings at popular U.S. travel destinations by showing the least expensive summer week to visit with highly rated value hotels.
“Everyone wants to make the most of their travel budget and the Wildwoods offer affordable hotel/motel rooms with a personal level of service for the ultimate family vacation,” said John Siciliano, executive director/CFO of GWTIDA.
