The Five Types.jpg

Everyone loves vacation. It's nice to get away from the routine of your usual surroundings and the day-to-day grind. But while everyone enjoys travel, not everyone enjoys it for the same reasons.

It's important to know what type of traveler you are, so you know what type of trip to book.

Where should you go? Where should you stay? What do you need to pack? Those are the questions that are answered when you know what type of traveler you are.

So who are you?

1. The Adventurer.

This type of traveler loves to dig right in and experience excitement. Adventurers love the sights and smells of nature, and they're not afraid to get dirty.

Adventurers enjoy rock-climbing, whitewater rafting, bungie-jumping and other thrill-seeking adventures.  For those Adventurers with less of an adrenaline addiction, beautiful hikes and off-road trails give them a reason to travel.

2. The Cultural Connoisseur.

An affinity for fine culture isn't only for wealthy elites. Art and museums are open to the public, and they can give travelers a great feel for the culture of an area.

Cultural connoisseurs also enjoy strolling through the town and people-watching. You might also find them at nearby churches or temples, taking in the experience of the locals.

3. The Historian.

The Historian knows that past is prologue. To gain a deeper understanding of today, Historians want to learn about the past, especially on their vacation.

This type of traveler loves ancient sites, anything from a Civil War battlefield to Alcatraz to the Acropolis. Guided tours often make these places even more enlightening. And of course, museums offer a window to the past as well.

4. The Foodie.

Nature? Art? History? None of those are as important to the Foodie as the sense of taste.

Foodies love trying out new cuisines with new chefs and new ways to prepare meals.

This type of traveler wants to try out the finest cuisines and the best restaurants, but they can also be found experiencing the local hole-in-the-wall joints and acclaimed food trucks.

5. The Combination.

The best part of traveling is that you can do it all. Travelers who like to combine everything better book a long vacation because they've got a lot to fit in.

The key tip for this (or any) type of travel is to find the right location and the right bed & breakfast to truly capture the local experience. With a good customer-focused B&B, you'll get the top insights into the best places to go in your destination.
