Researchers find many travelers are looking for an ‘experience’

When contemplating a destination, some travelers look to how the experience might translate to social media when making their decision, according to a new study by University of Georgia researchers.

They found that the motivations behind where travelers choose to stay while on a trip can go beyond customer service or cleanliness into what they can post online.
