Who’s Leaving on a Jet Plane?

Jetsetting_image_update Who doesn’t have a little wanderlust from time to time? We wanted to find out which US cities have the most Jet Setters: people ready to get up and go, explore, fly away… in a word, escape. To find out, we looked at the number of LivingSocial Escapes purchased to determine which cities had the highest percentages over the past three and a half years. We used the number of travel deals purchased as a percentage of total deals bought by location to determine which areas have people that can’t wait to get away, and where they’d rather stay home. While some of the results are what you would expect, we did unearth some interesting surprises. Home to some of our most beloved customers, the great Northwest has people packing their bags. Six of our top ten Jet Setting markets are in Oregon and Washington state. Also not shockingly, we found that people in Honolulu were the least likely to travel. (Can you blame them?) And of course, it must be the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico that keep people in Florida and Louisiana happy at home. On the flip side, people in two locales in sunny Cali (Monterey Bay and Stockton) have no hesitation to leave the warm weather and head out on vacation. Finally, we loved that Cornhuskers are loyal — two cities in Nebraska top the list of the least likely to travel. What are the Top Ten Jet Setting Markets?
